I'm happy with my advance brand 44 brakes on 35s.
I didn't see any vendors pushing any products, perhaps you can click on the post number and bring that one up?

BigRodney I hadn't clicked on this thread before because I don't really like light bars but it kept coming up so I got curious. Hilarious! It's like an episode of Seinfeld.

I think you're confusing advertisement with endorsement. There are a lot of folks who chime in on those threads to recommend specific brakes or share their personal experiences/recommendations. A particular brand being mentioned by multiple people doesn't count as advertising in my book.

Advertisement by whom?
07-31-2014 04:26 PM
Jerry Bransford Back on topic, Moto-Alliance is a paid Vendor who helps support this forum. If you guys knew how much Vendors paid the owners of JF every month, and it's more than most of you would suspect, you'd understand why they talk about their products wherever they can.

And guess what... without our paid Vendors and advertisers, this forum wouldn't exist. Period.

Once again, back on topic.

Maybe I'm lucky but I've not been burned yet on ordering from China. I've always gotten the product as described or my money back.
Actually, the Amazon bar in my thread comes with a 2 year warranty, and there have been a couple reviews that have stated the vendor is great to work with if you should encounter any problem with your light bar.

I challenge Moto-Alliance to order one then do a side by side comparison with his bar to show us why we should spend twice as much for his product......
I agree with this.

I agree, I would like to hear feedback from him on the possible differences or lack of. It just pains me to see so many products being ordered straight from China, if this country keeps it up, there will eventually be no choice at all. Im fully aware that American companies sell Chinese products, as with these light bars, but at least there is some profit being made here as well.

Even if they are exactly the same bar, which im sure they are not, Moto-Alliance is more than just some internet company selling crap on ebay and amazon. They seem to be a legit company that you can actually call and talk to, and take the time to actually come onto the forums and provide info and answer questions. I personally would rather give my money to folks like that rather than a faceless internet only company, even if I have to spend more.
