Those that have installed a light bar in your bumpers how do you like them? Are they pretty bright? What lumen rating did you get?

I just ordered a 22" light bar that I'll be installing next week. 8,500 lumen

I drive on a lot of back roads were there's lots of tame deer and such that stay along roads.
Plus we do a lot of spot light rabbit hunting on the hay fields. Haha (us farmers get bored in winter).

I have a 20" lightbar in my bumper and it's 20,640 lumen. I like my lightbar. Make sure you tack weld the nuts and bolts to make theft more difficult.

Where did you get a 20 inch that has that many lumens?? Although how do we know if it actually has that many lumens, they could be just saying it.
Raw lumens are 20,640. The effective lumens are 11,503. However, raw lumens is what most companies advertise their lightbars in as it's a significantly higher number than the actual number of lumens or effective lumens. Any reputable company will not be fudging this information. The Chinese knockoffs on the other hand or no name branded lightbars may claim something other than their actual output. The difference between my lightbar and what other people are buying is that mine uses 10 watt LEDs instead of the usual 3 watt LED.

I have a rigid e series. The light is great but the mount I got from them didn't seem quite right. I made it work though.

Alberta Advantage, What company did you get it through? Looks good!
All my lights are from Vision X. My bumper light is the Evo Prime double stack 20". The ones on the back are Evo Prime 8" bars. Not cheap but they're a nice light. Lifetime warranty too. I had a lens crack after a car accident and they replaced my lightbar, no questions asked.
