Too eBay 42" flood/spot led light or not???

Question is does anybody have the eBay 42" flood/spot combo led light bar? And if you so happen to have it what are your comments on it. I figure 150ish bones for a 42" is a steal. So I don't want to pass it up.

Looks like the typical Hanma bar.

You may have used the wrong link, but the bar listed there is only about 4.7 inches... 119mm is 4.685" or something like that.

Im still trying to figure out why people refer to anything as the ebay model when there are thousands of listings and none are made etc by ebay.

I'm the only gay eskimo.

Unless the link was changed, I think you're missing a 1 at the beginning of that measurement. The link posted takes you to this light bar.

Personally I would only get the version of the lightbar with cree LEDs also you are also going to want a combo bar with half that many floods. I have a 20" version and am happy with it.

I'm curious - why do you suggest fewer floods? You can never have too much light, right?

Depends on where the bar is mounted. If over the windshield, the floods will just bounce light off of your hood and blind you. Focused beam patterns (spot, driving) are much better.

This plus you wont have enough light in the distance. I would bet you wont be able to tell the difference between that and half that many floods. They will just be lighting the same area and you will also only light up a small area in the distance. I personally would rather have just spots or 4 LED on each side flood.

If you are wanting a awesome light bar check with 330 powersports in ohio I just got his 50 inch flood/spot for $389 shipped with 26,500 lumens and it is extremely bright and shines about 1000ft ahead of my jeep on the road .
