    here is a good web site that explainsthe differnce between fog lights, driving lights and spot lights.
    http://www.kchilites.com/applications.aspx

    differn't lights have differn't beam patterns, each beam pattern has a purpose. What do you want these lights to do?
    light up the trail in front of you while moving slow?
    shine a mile down the highway?
    get better visabilty in the fog?

    Well you can try the lamps from princess auto. They look identical to the KC daylighters for a fraction of the price. Big round looking chrome boobies, u can paint them if you wish. They work fine for off road lamps. 30 bucks for the pair you can't go wrong. They have a long pencil type beam. Strictly for off road, you'd piss a lot of people off on road.

    Don't get the smaller SRB looking ones, they have a weak flood pattern.

    Those are the ones in JP. Unfortunately, they don't ship to Canada.

    Know which Walmart this might be, I go down all the time and would love to pick up a pair? I tried looking on the US website and couldn't find them, called a couple in Buffalo and they said they don't carry them.
