    Lmao what a boss. Makes me love them even more. My switch pro is awesome
    Crash why do you do this to me.... I just ordered a 42" amber driving bar from DD. In all seriousness thanks for sticking around even though you went to the darkside with jeep, your word on lighting is always appreciated and valued.

    Well, I was considering their bumper mount hidden light bar, guess I'll look elsewhere. Any suggestions? Are their brackets still worth using or are there better alternatives?

    I also recommend the Diode Dynamics fogs. Put them on the wifes 4runner and they are super bright and very focused. Also recommend ordering them from @memario1214. Good guy to do business with

    I went with DD stealth 30" light bar and am very pleased with how it looks and more pleased with how it performs. I went with White Combo

    I used the CR mounting brackets, but installed a Diode Dynamics 30" Stage LED bar. Full Disclosure: I started out with a CR bar, but was disappointed with it. The DD bar is light years ahead of it.

    Except for my fogs, everything on my truck is from Extremeledlightbars.com great quality, half the price of DD or BD and still comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Probably given money to start a company and he resells rebranded Chinese knockoffs. Always has.

    gotta love the ‘made in USA’ banners all over the website, yet packaging has Chinese on it...

    little bit of here and a little bit of that...
    I had stock oem 2020 rigid fogs and wanted to upgrade, but I felt like I downgraded the looks(bezel) but hella upgraded the quality with the DDMax. But to be honest I started liking the looks of DD fogs better since yesterday install! I can just run fogs at night and still see. I adjusted the fogs following the lines from my stock rigid lights.

    I used there hidden led brackets and they are good quality. But went with rough country with the light bar. $100 more than there light but you get what you pay for no issues with water or condisation 188A00B4-A648-49D4-B8D6-20A5CDA3F61A.jpg

    I got a deal on a used prinsu rack that came with a cali raised 42" combo light bar. I headed to my local trail and immediately found that the light bar was complete junk, output and light distribution was horrible, the 8000k light temperature didn't help at all and actually caused more eye strain. Just one of my ditch mounted Baja XL80 outperformed it. That light bar came off and was replaced with a Baja Onx6+ a week later.

    CaliRaisedLED are rebranded cheap Amazon lights. Their side shooters are $100 and are the exact same as the pair I got on eBay for $27. Just upgraded to a pair of Rigid D-SS Pro Flood beam pods. I will say that their entire bracket setups are really good though.
