    *Cracks knuckles* Where do I begin?
    Looking for a blackout LED light bar. Has to be 30 inches long. If you have any suggestions please comment! Otherwise vote for which one you think is a better choice because these are the two I'm deciding between. Thanks TW!!

    both are Chinese, so just go to Amazon and find the cheapest one. if you want a great led bar (not blacked out) check out Baja Designs. they make some kick ass products.

    376E07B9-4366-4D02-A2E8-D19225A70B80.jpg i see you got zero help on this issue lol. i JUST had a Rough Country black series 50 mounted and its fantastic. also on sale now. get it! i was working with a shop locally that does Jeep and truck mods and they recommend Rough Country for a semi-quality product vs ebay/Amazon garbage, Rigid is a fortune. Some of us leave our cars in a driveway- personally i dont want a $1000 light bar hangin out with just a few screws for security.

    There is a vender here on TW that sells Rigid for a good discount. I bought my lights through him and saved quite a bit. All you need to do is find a lightbar you would like and send him the part number. For example this part # is a 30in radiance light bar SKU: 230003. Attached is a link https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/killer-deals-on-rigid-lights.396993/page-34#post-16492379 Like said in a previous post buy once, cry once.

    Not trying to be negative but I have never heard Rough Country and quality in the same sentence. Most of the time they are the cheapest products out there. If the light bar is great, then cool. I'd definitely like to hear a few months review on it. Main thing to watch out for is condensation buildup because of bad seals. :thumbsup:

    This. Awesome deals on awesome lights. I'm also super pleased with my CaliRaised 42" combo. Not a bad price and blew the doors of my cheapo Amazon bar.

    I’m super happy with this cheap blacked-out 30” 240w Amazon light bar for $77. Another TW member recommended it after he installed it. It’s definitely not Baja Designs or Rigid brightness and quality but it looks good, is super bright, and I can replace it at least ten times before I spend the same price for the legit ones.

    I paid not much more than that for my rigid radiance 30" amber backlit off Amazon.

    See build thread
    @TacoTacoma97 Have a look at our 30" C-Series bar. It is blacked out as you want, has more lumens (ours is 16,200 lm compared to 14,400 on your links) with the same wattage, and has a better warranty (our is 23 years, vs 3 years for your links). Plus, I'll get it to a great price for you during our Cyber Monday sale which is 20% off today, but I'm doing something a little more special for TW members. Shoot me a PM.
