What to get for off road lights on truck?

I got a 92 silverado 1500, I would like to put 4 more off roading headlights on top of the cab. What do I need to get? How do I attach them, and power them, and turn them on?
I do not have no bar or anything. Although I do have people to weld, if that helps. Thanks
For what I am thinking of for lights, you couldnt use these on the road; from what I seen, the other drivers may end up hitting somthing…

    Running the electrical is going to be the key part… you need to run a harness… with fuses, and a relay.

    Get with a mechanic to have this done right… if it gets "hacked" in, you will eventually have some problems.

    – Good Luck!

    I will recommend hid off road lites w hardware kit (SW, relays ,fuses and proper rated wire ) and for the mounting bar go to the local 4×4 off road store or auto parts store

    Those lights draw a huge amount of amps , you will need to upgrade your alternator amperage output ,most definitely.

    Lights come in various shapes and sizes , as well as the bars.

    Watch for your amperage/wattage draw of them in comparison to you present Alternators output.

    Or you will end up driving yourself in to a slow consistent battery drain.

    You can have them "switched" for short special occasions, but to run the constantly at night , you will need to replace your Alt.

    If you want them to enhance your truck I’d recommend investing in a offroad light bar which will fit your specific model of truck from some specialty company like JC Whitney. They can provide appropriate switches, fuses and wiring. There are different sizes of lights with different configurations e.g. round/rectangular. You’ll likely need to drill a few holes to route the wiring so a cordless drill will help. Good luck in following the installation they provide.
