I'm legitimately curious not trying to be a smartass: what exactly is this lightbar's purpose? Is it as bright/brigher/cheaper than halogen offroad lights? Or is it purely cosmetic?

I don't really like the light bars I think they look funny. I personally like the halogens better.

AUS is Australia

Its the same size but the one you got is a 20 inch and has a glass lens. The 24 inch is to the end of the mounting points. Tue size of the bar doesn't matter as much as the wattage for that size.

Mine is the best bang for the buck bar with a pc lens. Mine was through a us seller in redding California. This way if I do have any problems I just call him up and he will take care of me.

No I don't but it is bright! And you will see whwn you get it. Night and day difference.

Glass will chip and crack with rock impacts, poly-carbonate won't. The main difference between the off-brand and ones like Rigid or VisionX are the drivers, IP rating and most importantly, the lens design. Pretty much every cheap bar is either a Hanma or Aurora re-brand.

The cheapest brand of the chinesw lights is hanma which you got. The top of the line chinese light is Aurora. Any thing else is in between. Mine is one step above hanma.

Look at sneveysoffroad.com I have the razor dual row 20 the hanma brand he sells is he highlander. His titian I think is the aurora
