I think Brian is running those on the front of his Tacoma. $95 is definitely better than ARB's $700ea

I'm not a fan of lightbars... Too many HS kids around here have them on their trucks... along with a 6" front lift, no lift in the back, super-white headlights and the loudest exhaust they can find.

I don't want to be associated with that.

leds and sxs are in the same category for me. any usefullness and fun they might offer is ruined by the general ownership.

Saw a 2wd tacoma that had 3 bars on it. One on the roof, one on the grill and one on the lower bumper. And turned on during daylight hours.

If you have an old pair of PIAAs or Hellas, just retrofit them to LED.

That's pretty cool. I have a pair of Hella 700s with HID kits that I don't use anymore. Might bring em back with LED bulbs
