LED off road lights?

anyone have any of these on their truck?

i was looking at maybe changing out my halogens in the bumper to LED but i dont know how well they work or what not.

i really like the color because they would match my HIDs perfect!

Im sure alberta advantage will chime in, he has a ton of lights. My budy has several on his truck and they put out alot of light. I have been debating changing out the aftermarket lights on my bumper to LED's as well to go with my HID's.

I'm close to biting the bullet on a set of these LED light bars. Should fit just right in the center hole on the bumper.

that ebay one looks kinda funky?

ya i was looking at rigid as well but i really dont want to spend that much on some lights...i was gonna look at a 50" but $1600 for one light is quite a bit!

im gonna start out with 3 6 inch lights hopefully, then maybe a 30" behind the grille

Rid Industries lights are definitely the way to go. We recently put a 20" lightbar on a 2012 F250, the lighting was AMAZING. We are also selling a ton of the D2 lights which are also very bright and can replace your fogs. You will pay extra for them, but they are damn near bullet proof.

I should be able to provide some feedback in a couple of weeks. I had three KC 57 Series long range lights (167k candlepower each) in the center hole of my bumper. I'm in the process of replacing them with the 20" Rigid LED bar pictured above.

Lights are good. I like lights. Other drivers don't like me.

I haven't used any Rigid products so I can't directly comment on them. I haven't seen them illuminated either. I did look at them and fondle them at an offroad shop that sold them and when I was going through the pricing/comparison phase, that's when I found out about Vision X. Sure, Vision X was close to double the price but they were more than double the lumen output for the same size bar. I also like 10 watt LEDs and not measly 3 watt LEDs. Although cool guns are outlawed in Canada, you never know when someone will shoot at you so I thought if I ever had to take a round from an AK 47, I better get the Vision X bar.

I figure if Vision X is good enough for the military, NASA, US Border Patrol, the police and other first responders, the mines/oil sands, they're probably more than adequate for my purpose of driving down the highway. I figure government organizations have lives to save and protect and mines have billions of dollars at stake and run 24/7 and depend on their equipment to run with minimal downtime that I couldn't go wrong with Vision X. Haven't had any issues whatsoever. Been very pleased with all my lights.

If you want pictures of something, just let me know. Truck's t the dealership getting the big 48,000km/30,000 mile service so you'd have to wait until tomorrow when I get it back.

If you're looking for something bright that won't break the bank, get 3 of these as replacements for your halogens.

I dunno.....not questioning that Vision X makes a quality light, but at what distance is the lumens output measured from as compared to Rigid? One thing I liked about the Rigid E Series is that the bar is a spot light / flood light combo. I may have missed it, but I didn't see that offered with the Vision X.
