Do you just drive only during the day with a rig like this?

There's a guy around me that runs a pumper truck, he carries a mini bobcat on the front of his truck, he has aux lights mounted on the carrier, WalMart and auto Zone used to sell some lights from Baja that have the DOT stamp on the glass ( I have them on the front end of my car since the old lady knocked the front end off it a few years ago, nobody makes the parts for an 86 anymore). They use the H4 halogen bulbs, so you can use the 55w stock bulb, or do what I did and put the 100w bulbs in the high beams. ( Yeah I'm the guy you don't want to flash high beams on)
