Front brush guard Hella lights

I've got 4 hella lights on top of my d90. I'm looking to sell them, so if anyone wants to buy them, make me an offer. The two switches for these lights is to the right and left of my stereo, so the question is; can I use the same switches and the same wiring for two hella lights that will go on the factory brush guard? What hella lights should I get to mount on the brush guard, how do mount them?

You should be able to use the same switch and wiring. I have 6 Hella 500s on my 90 an 2 more on my Jeep. Always had good luck with them, and I like the size.
As far as mounting them, it depends on the brush bar set up you go with. I have the standard '94 wrap around bar. I just drilled holes in the lower bar. Has worked well for 13 years now... LR used to offer a small bar that mounted to the bumper for light mounting as well.

I just bought this brush guard this morning, so I'm hoping that the lights should be easy to mount. What hella lights do you recommend?

Check out some of the metal-body lights, like the 1000's, I think you'll be pleased vice the plastic lights.

I would recommend that you use the biggest lights you can fit in the bar. I have used 500's, 530's, 550's, 1000's, 2000's, 3000's and 4000's. I definitely like the bigger lights, and more lights. I will 2nd the thought to use metal housed lights, I have killed tons of the plastic housings.

It will look like shit if you drill holes in that brush bar. you need to see if you can find the factory mount that works in conjunction with the brush bar and the bumper. Hella 4000's look the best, the 500's are lame. Youll have to cut a hole in the grill to accomadate the 4000's. I will find a photo of the mount. See below, it mounts on top of the brush bar.
