Rigid Ind. Light Bar as Fog Light?

I've been kicking around the idea of putting a Rigid Industries light bar on my ranch hand and using it for my fog lights. Anybody do this? How well does it work? I looked and they have a flood and spot light model, i figured the flood would work the best but open to opinions from guys that have done this. Thanks in advance

My truck is not as new as yours but I did the 20'' on mine.



It is the spot/flood combo (P/N 12031). They only offer the combination on the 20'' anyways. The amount of light it throws out is really insane. Well worth the money spent.

yea i really like the look of yours. I was thinking about putting it towards the bottom of my ranch hand about the same location as yours. On the combo one is it a two way switch that makes it flood/spot light? And do you have any problems with blinding on coming traffic?

DO NOT run this in traffic. I have ran this in daylight and people flash me. It does not have a two way switch for flood/spot. Once you flick the switch the whole bar comes on. If you are in the Portland area I work at 4WheelParts. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I actually just looked on the 4wheelparts site and they have a single row bar now. Would that be better for traffic? I'm down in the Houston, TX area and theres always traffic.

Rigid does offer the SR series from 6'' to 50''. The problem you will run into is how much light is present at a certain range. For instance, 1 lux is all the light you need to read a newspaper. Your 20'' SR series bar offers 1420 lux at a 10 meter distance and 1 lux at 377 meters. That is incredibly bright. In traffic, it will be too much.

All of the 20" bars are going to be too intense for traffic. I would look at the Rigid Dually's or D2's in the flood or diffusion pattern.

what fun are lights you can't use in traffic? I'd much rather annoy a couple people with something i get use out of

2003' F350 7.3L Lariat Crew-Crab 4x4 6spd Manual Short Bed. 3.73 ratio and that's about all i know... so far.

Until you blind them and have a head on collision.

Or they have a single car accident, someone gets your tag #, and you end up with a citation (maybe even criminal charges if the occupants of the other vehicle are seriously hurt) and a civil suit filed against you.

Even the SR series is way too bright to use as a fog light. But you can tie them into your high beams......still not legal, but less risk IMO.
