    My light needs are simple, and all I had planned on buying were 2 100 watt off road lights with a "driving pattern". Thats all I was looking for. Then I started to look at HID's, LED light bars, etc. So my question is, does say 10" RI light bar compare to two 100w lights up front output wise, or? How would you compare the output with the 10" and 20" lightbars with "traditional off road lights"? I know the larger light bars can have multiple light patterns built it, but just a rough idea with the output comparsions would help. Thanks guys for you feedback

    i have a 20" vision x evo prime bar on my 4runner and it puts my 55watt hid headlights to shame both in spread and distance

    Cannot compare output of leds to hids. Bang for your buck would be hid converted lights. In general hids for distance and leds for close range. Best to use both. Use what suites your needs.

    This seems to be the to go, plenty of hid conversion info here thanks
