KC Daylighters. They can be purchased for around $100 and put out a great beam.
There are lots of options out there. the KC's are on the XJ in this picture.
Another PIAA setup. Mine are 940's. I have 55w bulbs in both. They originally had 85w and 90w. I also have some 6" Cebie's that I don't use anymore. They originally had 55w Ion blubs which were awesome in fog. 55w Ion's were more like 90w Halogens, IIRC. I need to get replacements for them but Cebie's are rare in the states.

Back in my high school days (yes, it was a long time ago) everyone had KC daylighters. I don't remember if they put out decent light but they sure rusted up quick.

Aircraft lights worked for race situations but weren't/aren't suited for street use; I still hear of people looking for them.
Most of what you can buy from a catalog or 4x4 shop is just hyped-up junk.
so have we reached a solid conclusion?
I ran 3 sets of KC Daylighters on my old pickup for years, the best lights I ever had. Sure the housings rusted, but it never affected the lights or their output. I currently have PIAA's and Hella's and I'm beyond tired of stress cracks in the lense from running them in the rain/slush. A small pebble took out the lense on my large PIAA's, of course, $60.00 ea. for a new lense. The only upside, PIAA does warranty for stress cracks, in some situations, so I have gotten them to replace them. Heck, I even tried 3M clear bra to help reduce the stress cracks, didn't help at all.
'00 Dodge Dakota, modified gibson exhaust, AFE intake, Cobra CB, Astro Topper/Yakima rack system, Winch Ready front bumper, Milemarker E8000 winch, 4.10 gears, ssbc rear disc conversion, a few extra lights and a build that will never end.
New project, 2009 Kawasaki Versys, will be more of a street oriented expo vehicle, but it's still in the planning stages.
For those of you wanting the yellow lighting I haven't found any as good as the PIAA crystal ion lights. I've got a set in driving light style and even in heavy snow they are useful to see farther than the fogs would let me. I've also replaced the headlights and factory fogs with the ion bulbs except for the high beams. I also slapped some hella work lights on the rear bumper with the yellow ions. They even cut through CLOUDS when we're up in the mountains literally.
