Best quality LED bars for lowest prices?

I'm trying to find a good quality LED bar around 20" to put under the grill of my 99 prerunner. Does anybody know of a site that has a good price for them?

Blitzpro.com - I have their 21'' and like it a lot. http://okledlightbars.webs.com is another that members on here seem to like.

Awesome. Would you recomend a light bar over fog lights for brightness purpouses? I'm trying to go as bright as possible haha.

A light bar will throw light farther than most fogs would. That being said, Blitzpros bars have no optics in them to create a spot pattern. They are just a big flood light, similar to how fogs work. But it is also a lot brighter than most fog lights you will find.

Heres my truck with just the 21'' bar on. All of these pics were with my iphone, so the light pattern doesn't look as even as it really is.



Again, here it is with just the LED bar on:



And here is is with my low beam 5000k HIDs on:



If you are looking for as bright as possible, I don't know if an LED bar is what you're looking for really. I mean I love mine for what it does, but if you are trying to throw a ton of light down the road I would buy some good spot lights like Hella or Lightforce. LEDs are incredibly bright and power efficient, but they still have a ways to go technology-wise to focus the light on the road.

Then again, I've never seen a Rigid Industries bar in action, so I could be completely wrong. But the pictures I have seen have not left me that impressed, especially with their price tag.

Those both actually look REALLY good. The one I'm really looking at would be the 21" from okledlightbars.com just for the brightness purpous as both of y'all have shown. Should it be down angled at all or is position just personal prefrence?

Doesn't have to be. Mine is pointing straight. Don't use it for oncoming traffic though. You will blind other drivers. I use mine as high beams and for trails. The light pattern is impressive as you can see.

The OKled 20'' is going to be brighter because it has two rows of course. Mine is mounted slightly down but only because how I mounted it does not allow for it to be adjusted upwards very much. And yes, do not use it with oncoming traffic. Way too bright for that

check out rigid industries as well. They have a spot pattern or flood. They can also be fitted for both in one unit.

^ Rigid is good too, but have fun paying double or even triple the amount for pretty much the same thing.

Chris isn't really trying to make a lot of money. He just wants to get his name out there and make some friends in the process. That's why his prices are amazing and that he had a group buy and is currently doing a prize giveaway contest. Chris is an amazing guy plus his prices can't be beat.
