Where did you get your marker/blinker lights?

Previous owner installed them. Pretty sure it's these. I also have these side markers. Yellow incandescents in the front, yellow LEDs in the sides.

Spec-D makes all kinds of stuff and it always seems sketchy as hell.

All of those Chinese light bars are all the exact same thing. Just RTV around the glass and they are just as good as the $200 ones

I'm good with that on light bars. They pop up whenever I go digging for headlight or signal light housings though. The needed and legally required lights I don't like being cheap.

Anyone had a Carr guttermount light bar? Crossbar to install lights, not an LED bar or anything. Worth the money to get the flip down?

I think that'd only serve a purpose if you usually go on the highway. I do, but I would never fold it down cuz I think it'd look stupid.

I was thinking for overhead clearance on trails. Less likely to snag branches or smash the lights flipped down.

Seems like an LED bar would be lower profile and more impact resistant. And If you're talking GOOD conventional or HID lights in a set of 3 or 4 the light bar really isn't likely to be much more $$$

You could hang a long bar of a square tube gutter mount facing forward, same clearance as folded down lights but full-time.

I know I can fab something, that's not the point. If the Carr bar is worth $100 its better than going and buying a bunch of steel I dont have to fab something I can buy for cheap.

Dollar per dollar hid lights will always out range leds. Across the board. 100$-2500$.
