I think RIGID makes the best, BUT what is the best 42" for the $$?

    I LOVE Rigid products. They make the best quality products and back up what they sell. I am looking for a 42"(ish) light bar to fit between my OEM roof racks. What is the best light bar that you have found to fit my needs that does not cost $15k but is still quality? Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Ken

    I know you're looking for great quality. But I am gonna throw this out there anyways. I have a 42" knock off version of the vision x evo prime I got on eBay. Not the same technology and not quite as bright because it uses Cree led's, but I gotta say for $350, it is well worth it. Puts out 22,165 lumens. I would love to compare it to the same vision x bar but doubt I'll never find anyone that has one nearby. The finish isn't as good as say rigids, but it hasn't faded or scratched or anything. It WILL scratch easily if you bump it on something or maybe from trees. But not like from daily driving or washing it. The lens hasn't scratched or yellowed or hazed or anything and it's in the hot az sun every day.
    Just a thought for ya.. Because imo, it's the best for your money. If I had the money I would be buying nicer name brand ones. But I would rather have more lights for my money than spend a fortune on name brands. That's just me and I don't mean to start up a debate. Just wanted to let you know my thoughts and experience.. Good hunting. And if u want a link to the one I have let me know and I'll find it.

    I really like Baja Designs. But they are $$$. Farthest projecting LEDs on the market. with the OnX bar.

    Baja Designs are great, but I think they price themselves too high.
