    I just got a Totron 30" (all spot) LED light bar. This is the newer version with 5w LEDs. I got it on Ebay for $189. And can you believe it was shipped from China to Texas in 3 Days! That was the regular free shipping.
    I went with the single row, cause I wanted a little more light but wanted it mounted discretely on my grill guard.
    It is very bright and the construction seems solid, for less than 1/4 the price of the comparable Rigid, I think it is a great deal.
    These LEDs don't throw as far as my HID Hella 700FFs, but it puts out a nice smooth & solid "Euro-Beam style" pattern.

    ^^ This is the same one I have with adjustable sliding mounts. I love the mounting idea, I wish they were all like that. Don't expect the casing to be black forever. They use cheap powder coating and it turns bronze.

    I mounted some of those Mighty Night Light Spotlights on the back of my pickup and On the sides for a little 360 degree lighting. There made by Sound Off Signal. I still Have a LED Lightbar on the front, But I use these for the back and sides. As I recall I think I ordered them from a place called Zequip.com. I linked up the info on the lights for you guys to check them out. They work great!

    Those oval pins really allow it to be angled anyway you want and then with the sliding feature, I was able to line up with some existing holes in my grill guard. Although I did have to buy some longer bolts and an inch spacer& washers to get it to line up perfectly under the cross bar...but it worked out perfect.

    I read somewhere the newer Totrons have corrected this powder coating issue and they will stay black. So my fingers are crossed. If not I will just tape up the lens and spray it down with some BBQ pit paint.

    Did you wire yours up with a relay? I set mine up with an extra non-relay harness I had and it has been working fine. But I ordered a relay harness & deutsche connector and will install that this weekend. These LED lights don't seem to cook the wires & switches like the old school KCs did back in the 80s.

    Yup, the main reason I got mine was that I was able to perfectly place it in the holes on my arb bumper. Was a big selling point for me. Hmm, well hopefully the pc issue is resolved for you. How many lumens is yours? I wired mine up to a relay kit I got from an auto parts store. Nothing fancy but it works.

    9000 lumens.
    The new double row 32" puts out 16,200 lumens and cost the same price, although it only mounts on the ends.

    I might be getting a used double row from a buddy, so I'm just trying to get some money for my old light bar.
