Affordable Light Bar

Im looking at getting a light bar but not trying to blow the bank up on one. Looking at a 32-40 range. Going to run some cubes also. What is everyone running Brand/Size/Price?

Buyers Products based in Ohio has some nice lights. I have a couple on my RZR, I have one on my Go Cart at work. They have a 5 year warranty and some pretty decent specs. They wont break the bank. www.buyersproducts.com and use the search for what youre looking for.

2018 RZR 1000 S, mostly stock, home made aluminum roof, with rack for spare tire. Dual battery, stock Polaris and Napa AGM with a battery isolator. Warn Axon 3.5S winch. Almost 3k miles, working on installing lights, its life before me was a street legal machine in Arizona, lotsa miles , never saw mud.
No tunes.

Re: Affordable Light Bar

I purchased this one from Ebay (30" model);

https://www.ebay.com/itm/20-30-40-50...kyjYRr_eadbQ9A

Didn't break the bank, had end cap mounting (I flipped the brackets that where supplied), and was bright as F**K. Lights up the night like the 4th of July! lol At 115K lumens its a bit over powering even during the day it on.

I paid $48 bucks, but it did not come with the wiring harness with relay. I had one from another set of lights I had ordered before. I also have the 12" model mounted on my brush guard, along with another 12" model on the rear of my Cooter Brown Roof for when backing up at night in the bush. I like to see where I'm going at night. This allows me to see everything.

Hope this helps.

I am fairly happy with my black Nilight Bar
It didn’t break the bank and puts out plenty of light. Bought a 42” for my teryx and both have been good to me

Running a harness and 200 amp relay as well

That's a pretty bad ass light bar but the product information says different; Lumens (Light Flux): 23000LM

Re: Affordable Light Bar

And the math still doesn't add up. The product info states that it is a 230 watt bar it has 230 - 1 watt chips. That doesn't equal 23,000 lumens, 23k should need 255 watts. While we are at it 115,000 lumens would need 1,278 watts. Don't get me wrong in thinking I'm against China lights because I'm not, but they lie a lot on their performance.

Re: Affordable Light Bar

OP:

A Totron single row would be (is) my first choice. Something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Totron-TLB109.../dp/B00S74J6VK

However, I'm actually trying to find the DCSX version (double the wattage),

https://www.totron.com/product/30-in...led-light-bar/

Now if only I could find a reseller of the things.

I do suggest you look for IP67 rating lights, and perhaps you should include a wiring harness with an integrated relay...

Luck to you,

Re: Affordable Light Bar

This is my simple review of a product I purchase off Ebay. They say 115k Lumen, maybe not, but to my point of view, they are bright enough for me. I believe they are china lights, says so on the box. But hey, they are affordable, at around 100 invested and a saterday afternoon. Also they have held up in the direct weather, they sat out in the back yard for 3 months straight while I built the trailer for it. There has been no water intrusion or fogging. Maybe I got a good one, but hey, I took a change due to my budget. Which is normally zero. I'm married and live in a sub-division where every ride is a cost. lol

For reference the fence is 60", the back house is 120'. I ride forest and logging roads. So distance is not a requirement, penetration into the bush is.

To give reference here is regular settings of factory lights;

I have all additional lights on relays, so no dimming while running. Also I have a dual battery system with multi battery switch.

I hope this help someone, only trying to help.
