Knowing first hand the cost involved in making these types of lights I can say this is one of those too good to be true issues. Somewhere along the line there is a mistake happening. I have imported lights for over a year before actually having my own designs manufactured and there simply is no way to get them at this price. Regardless of if you order 200 or whatever it costs more to build them.

Best of luck to whoever has ordered. I am not trying to get on here and argue about brands etc, just giving a little advice from someone in the industry.

Luck Favours The Prepared

as a comparative, Rough country sells the same one for 599. And RC is known for cheapcrap. But are they getting them for 22 bucks and REALLY sticking it to us buyers??? After seeing some of there leaf springs and the harborfreight quality of them... I could say yes.

I dont think i'll like the road noise the wind will make with an led bar mounted on my jeep. So at least i can test it for cheap. I'll wait till it comes in before i buy the brackets

You beat me to it.

Ted Nelson: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?
Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of ****. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I've got spare time.

if he took that pic that was posted earlier, there's obviously a garage full of lights.

if he can double his $, plus make a few bucks on any leftover shipping fees... it's a win for him...

or maybe we're getting scammed.

still worth the risk to me.

I thought the same, but those boxes are small... Unless you got to put it together somehow..
