    I recently bought a new 30" led light bar for $400 bucks from Tech quad shop and I got to say that I am impressed thought i would share incase someone was looking for one for there tacoma. it is a totron light bar and it puts out 10800 lumins but for less than half the price of all the others i have seen I gotta say this is a quality piece for the money enjoy. video at the end kinda sucks but you get the point.

    subbd. would love to get one someday. interested in seeing some pics mounted and some performance shots!

    Edit: Comparing with most prices in a quick google search, you got a smoking deal. Im seeing $397 for the 20" and ~$500 for the 40".

    rigid does have patents. but their are like 2 or 3 other US makers. rigid has patents on the way the back is and how it cools allot better/faster. and one on the reflectors or what ever.

    From mounting hole to mounting hole is 32 3/4 I will have to measure just the light bar.

    I did look at the rigid, and dragonfire light bars but the way i see it I can break 2 of these for the price of one of theirs. this one has a 2 year warrenty so i guess we will see what happens

    It says online 5 year warranty on that light bar.

    And that measurements is fine, I was curious how far over it goes...got an idea on how I want to mount a LED bar just trying to figure how big I can go in my small area
