But speaking to the led bar, I run my 50" as my high beams down country roads late at night. Always sure to kill it when I see the glare of oncoming headlights.
You make me sad.


Not enough "country" roads out here, but there are some that I will be sure to turn the light bar on for.

No, I knew things were going to take a while from the get go, just waiting on the savings pile to go vertical...

Generally this is the case because LED lamps require specialized optics in order to project light properly. I have seen the lamps Carlos has posted before and the consensus around the artificial lighting communities is that they are a poor method of providing good light. There is a reason why the Truck Lite LED lamps cost so much, there is hundreds of hours of R&D that go into the reflector on the lamp.

When you buy truck lite, you are buying an entire housing. These are a replacement bulb. Not a housing meaning light will be thrown in the same form as it was in the same housing you had, just more of it.

I personally am redesigning my own housings to do more of what truck lite has done.

All the best to you, just know that it does takes quite a bit of engineering to utilize all of the light coming off of an LED
