Offroad Lights

Alright boys, I'm growing tired of getting flashed for my highbeams 24/7. I want to know what the best set-up for a "few" offroad lights would be on one of these trucks?

Anyone see where I'm going with this?

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

umm... no it's not, at least not in Texas... running around town with the lights ON without the covers is "illegal". You can have them, just not supposed to have them on.
