    Here's a couple nice double row 3d bars.

    Autofeel 50" 3d curved for $150
    Autofeel 50" 3d straight for $180



    Otherwise I would suggest a single row with the 10watt leds. Like a vision x evo prime, or baja designs clone. I would even suggest them over the above ones as they perform very good, if not better than most other generic bars, even the double rows. Or go for the real deal if you have the money.

    But most importantly (if you need tips on choosing the right bar for your needs) go for cree, and 3d. Unless you're looking for a spot pattern, then I'd say 4d or 5d. 3d is a great all around light pattern. Lots of spread (and flood with combo beams) and good distance. 4d or 5d will have NO spread/spill/flood, but great distance. But so tight that it will look like a pure spot light.. Even if it says combo or flood, it will be purely a spot beam even being 50".

    Baja designs example(random eBay finds):

    And I can't seem to find a 50" clone atm of the vision x, but it looks like this one:
