they are expensive, but look at the cost of GOOD offroad lights, its pretty close to buying 2 or more HID offroad lights. which I would think the light output is comparable to..

If you go LED you never go back, light output is comparable to HID but little things like instant on no time for warm up and being able to leave the bar on all night without killing your battery really adds up. Joeys smittybuilt bar is 100% identical to the vision-x, same light output and quality

It's hard to drop that initial coin but you would not regret it

hey guys, so i went out of cell reception last night so i couldnt update you guys on the spot but only got two ok shots from my phone. the light is retarded bright after driving with them on the back roads for a litle bit i actuall couldnt figure out how i got by with just headlights lol. for the guys who asked how much $$$.... it was allot. some one posted a link for the bar at 375ish or something but the price difference in canada is way more.. resale price here was $549 but the shop nocked $100 off the so i payed $449. allot of coin but worth it.

i cant find the exact link online because i used the catalogue in the store but heres the best thing i can find. prices range depending on bar length so the 50" bar is like $2200 or something. you can apply different filters to specific lights to make more flood or spot.

so heres the pics. this one is just headlights


this is headlights and light bar


against the house doesnt do it justice compared to out in the boonies with no street lights or anything. it is a very impressive light! i recommend it to anyone looking to brighten up the night!

I am really considering these, they look crazy bright.

I don't have a ton of use for them yet, but when I start offroading, this may be worth it

Looks pretty bad ***. I like that it's a lot more low-profile than getting some off-road lights, and the light output looks insane.... who's gonna be the first one to mount it on the rear bumper for reverse lights?

To hell with reverse lights. Who's gonna be the first to mount it for when people get to close and start riding your bumper with their brights on?

i have an 04 kind of like this..



I'd love to install LEDs in the right and left parts of the grille so i could turn em on when i needed that extra power. It'd be kinda large and funny shape but would be awesome :)

Change out your stock fogs for rigid industries dually D2's, better light output than HID's and the best price out there for led at $380 a pair
