    Rigidhorse 42 Inch LED Light Bar 420W Single Row Flood & Spot Beam Combo

    Just purchased from Amazon
    6 watt x 40 Leds

    My roof rack project items are coming together (Baofengs are not apart of roof rack project lol) !

    Two questions,
    Q.1 Did any of you guys upgrade your bolts that came with the cube lights, I’m not fond of the rust already accruing
    Q.2 What did you guys to use to seal the mounting holes for brackets ? I think most people use silicone.

    Thanks !

    I put two cubes in the back, I didn’t want anything obstructing me from putting a kayak if I was going too. I’d like to keep it as flush as possible

    No worries. I see you went with another brand. Any reason why? I’m just curious, not criticizing

    I’m planning on using the baofengs to communicate while camping/hiking/backpacking and to talk to other tacos when Offroading. I don’t have a comm’s set up in the taco.

    The Rigidhorse 42 Inch LED has higher wattage compared to your Nlight and I liked the more rugged look. I also picked it up for $71.99 since it had a coupon that’s currently applicable

    You sure did and you’re right! Over twice the wattage. That’s interesting!

    It says 420 watts, but the math doesn’t add up. Not sure if I’m missing something or it’s false advertising
    “40*6 Watt high power LEDs”
    40x6=240
    Where is the 420 coming from:confused:
    Either way, I want @ minimum 5 watts per LED, so 6 Watts is plenty for me
