Not really a fan of the aluminum trim pieces... All black would look better IMO. I also don't see the point in having it broken up into three peices as apposed to one longer bar.

I'd save up the extra cash and go with the rigid 20" bar with mount specific to our trucks. You can find it cheaper then what they have listed on Rigids site, so don't go based off that. I also noticed that light you linked to is a combined 5000 lumens. Rigids 20" bar is somewhere around 15,600 lumens. Quite drastic!

Rigid claims 7900 lumens but they also charge like $800 with the mount

Just put HID's in your fogs and you will have the same amount of light. I've got retro solution in mine and they are bright as heck.

I could have sworn the manual that came in the box for my rigid light bar said 15,600 Lumens. Guess I could be wrong. It's bright as sh*t though.

Also, Rigid has it listed for $760 w/ mount. I got mine for under $620 w/mount. Only a $170 difference from what's on that eBay link.

Having put HID's in many of my cars, there no way, ever, that some HID's in your fogs will create the same amount of light as one of these light bars. The light output is nuts.

I'm mounting some of Rigids flush' mount D2's in my rear bumper soon. Got a rockin' deal on those too. They are sitting on my desk right now, just need to get it to the body shop.

I don't think those are rigids, don't look right. I think they are knockoffs.

Take a stand today, join your local Fire Department or First Responder/Rescue team. We need all the help we can find!

Old thread, but I just bought a bar for my 5 ton. The stock lights are good for driving, but off road they leave a lot to be desired. I got it from black box logistics out of Baton Rouge. It's their 50in dual row bar.
