If you buy them in bulk (talking 200 or more at a time)- this pricing is very realistic. The supplier has access to 10000+ a month.

Not likely to be rejects.
So you believe that Rigid is paying $22 for their bars and selling them for $1k plus? I have no doubt Rigid is making good money but I don't believe it is that much. Perhaps we'll just have to disagree on this one.

Thats not what I said. I'm saying that these bars are not likely to be rejects. All of the suppliers I have found, are looking at 22-40$ a bar when buying in bulk.

All I am saying, is that these are not likely to be rejects, when you can access 10k+ a month.

HERE IS THE REAL TRUTH,
This is a 70 buck all together light bar that you don't have to give a **** about. If I have a 400+ dollars I'm not blowing it on some light bar that I will probably break anyway, hell I'll do the axle swap I've been looking at for the past year and a half, then I'll get a new roll cage, then I might as well buy a couple off brand KCs, or I might get new tires, maybe fix my fenders, make a new bumper set, I could buy a snorkel kit. The possibilities are endless if you're not one of those -I'm not trying to offend anyone- dicks that buys things solely because of a brand, like personally if it gets the job done why should it matter if it's a big name or some weird company that no one has ever heard of? We don't actually know if it is even comparable to the on brand expensive as hell ones, but the dudes that assume because it is something that the average person can afford, so automatically it has to be a piece of **** attitude are honestly really aggravating. I plan on investing in one of these when I get back home, and people who are against it, your opinion has been heard, let people with faith in it have it and wait for the actual reviews to post if it's worth it or not.

Ok, so what's the factory grade immediately above reject?

Exact same as what he is selling, and the others on eBay.

Just shows the markup on these things. I'm trying to get some cash together to grab a load. They would move quickly coming from a North American supplier.
post a link. or PM me it... And if you need a capital investment person let me know.... Seems people on here are wanting these lights and are willing to pay 80 bucks for them If here we could charge 150 and still make out...

Cause I looked at getting them from China, but they were like 320 a unit... Hell if i found the 22 bucks one and they are as listed. I could easily do the bulk order... Hell I could order mor than just that set...

I'll be in touch later today. But I'm not willing to move on it, until I get mine and tear it apart

Troll much?

As I have said in everything, I am waiting to review it in person. I will slam it if it is crap. I have every intention of tearing it apart when I get it.

Not trolling. Having a realistic discussion about the product. This is a tech forum right? I've already said twice that for the price its worth checking out. Personally, the $300-400 no name bars seem like a much risky buy to me.
