Led light bars are the new fad around here. I have buddies that are running the super nice ridged industry and the difference between the cheaper version isn't worth the extra $1000. I and a few others are running the cheap eBay light bars and have zero complaints. I even had one warranted with zero hassle (shipping accident). I paid less than $150 for a 36" bar and the wiring harness. Can get you the eBay link if your interested.

Those cheap lightbars might look the same on the outside but they have 3 watt LEDs. I have 10 watt LEDs in mine. The cheaper lightbar says the life expectancy is 30,000 hours. The higher end are 50,000 hours. Higher end also use polycarbonate lenses not toughened glass.

But you can buy 6 cheapies for 1 ridgid. I have had no issues with mine...yet .

On a side note as well, the light bar came packaged very very well, and I like the mounts better than rigid. I'm not here to advertise for them just stating my experience. The construction is also all metal including the mounts. I was leery as to how far my $150 would take me with a product like this, but so far I'm nothing short of impressed.
