LED Light Bars

Ok, so with so many choices out there, from name brand to non name brand, which ones have you guys had good luck with and not good luck with?

I am looking to buy one this week, but wanted to see what opinions you guys had and experience you guys had with what you got.

I know there are Rigid, Bulldog, VisionX.... which one is better for the money, or are there any others that are better I didnt list?

Im a firm believer in generic/knock off brands are just as good if not the same quality on most things. LED bars are one of them. I bought this one
Amazon.com: MicTuning 12v 24v 21.5'' 120W Led off road SUV Jeep off road Truck ATV High Power Light Bar Work Lamp 8000 Lm White: Automotive Amazon.com: MicTuning 12v 24v 21.5'' 120W Led off road SUV Jeep off road Truck ATV High Power Light Bar Work Lamp 8000 Lm White: Automotive
a few months ago and so far its holding up great and its just as bright as the high end ones for less than half the cost. The pictures dont lie its bright as F**K.

Some people swear by rigid or cree but i have no complaints about the one i got and i know alot of people have had success with the lesser known brand LED bars

Yea i like it, the worst complaint about it was the wiring harness they sent me was a bit confusing because its made so you can hook it up several different ways but other than that its all good. I have it mounted in my ranch hand bumper, you can see it in my sig pic

i think the main issue with the knock offs and the name brand is longevity. The knock off brand uses cheap LED that have an a cheap transistor that heats up too much and burns out.

From what I have heard, if you want your cheap LED to last, put a good resistor on it to limit the current to the LEDs. Helps make them last longer.
