    Im looking to pick up a 50" curved bar for my 14 Taco. I've been looking on Amazon and they are few and far between, but this one stood out to me. I would rather have a full spot but with a budget of 350-500 max i cant be too picky.

    I want to know if anyone has any feedback on the Oslam light-bar platforms. If not where would be s good place to pick up a full spot curved bar?

    Here are the specs for the particular bar in question.

    http://www.amazon.com/Oslamp-Curved...sr=1-18&keywords=50+inch+curved+led+light+bar

    Thank you!

    The one you posted has the OSRAM LED hence the higher price, but its only IP67 rated. It looks decent, but you never know with the overseas companies. See if they will give you a 2 year warranty, thats only fair and if its even remotely decent they should last that long.

    A lot of times the manufacturer will claim OSRAM or CREE but put crappy Shenzen LEDs in there. $30 for a 30", those are going to be 3rd and 4th level rejects that wont last too long. If you are just going for looks, then it might be an okay way to go. OSRAM has moved their manufacturing to China recently.

    Just remember that those are a really really tight spot beam pattern. The straight bars anyways. I have yet to see output shots of the curved. But I'd say they are worth it. They seem to throw extremely far. I'm really curious how the curved ones compare.

    Do you recomend a brand for about $500 ?I'm skeptical as others are on spending money on led bars

    I did purchase the OSLAM Bar. I love it, It's super bright and I have no complaints. I can post some pictures in a few days

    I picked up the Relentless Fab mounts. Instal was very smooth minus the fact that my factory roof rack holes were threaded incorrectly from the factory haha.. That was a headache to get fixed.

    Ill take some pics this weekend. Been super busy with work

    Message @zscott for heretic studio light bars! They are American made and a bargain considering they are made by hand in Utah.
