    A lot of the light bars out there are made by the same manufacturers and imported and resold. There are a few different types of these out there and then of course there are the RIGID's and Baja Designs' which are really nice but cost too much for the average guy.

    Some places are selling the lights with toughened glass lenses vs poly carbonate (lexan), I wouldn't recommend these lights although they are sometimes cheaper.

    LED lifetime is generally stated at 30,000-50,000 hrs which is probably longer than any of us will ever need and the lumen outputs are pretty similar.
