bumper lights - trying to decide - what are you running

Data points - 95' ST with ARB bull bar...

What is everybody running?

Some options i was thinking

Hella ralley 4000
Hella Ralley 4000 HID (euro) has a lot of punch but hid bulbs are generally less durable for the long run

Rigid Led?

This is more of a gathering ideas and looking at pros/cons and what i may have missed in my searching.

I'm aiming twords a TAT trip with some longer trips thrown in and uwharrai is right around the block so to say.

Pictures please as well.

I don't have an ARB, but I have some IPFs I really like on mine. I admit an interim owner (someone who owned it between when I sold it the first time and when I bought it back) fitted them and I would never have done such a thing, but they are great. I had hella 3000s on a disco and they were plenty bright (I think there were six or seven on it).

Yes.

HID are nice for battery draw, but I am fine with the old school stuff.

I also have a box of big rectangle IPFs in the attic I got from CvC. I think I have 5 or six. I am limited in so far as no roof lights because I cheaped out and fitted a seven foot door to my garage.

Roof lights - i was planning to go with floods via LED light bars (2 x 20") front lights was looking at spots.
the floods to me are important where we dive (winter its at night so very helpful along with rear lighting).

Spots would be useful on the rare night slog.
