    Ok it's your choice, I've sold 450 lights in the past 3 months and have only gotton 2 warranty calls, so you make your choice to spend 300+more dollars on rigid lights or Baja designs lights, or buy my lights that haven't scandaled anybody.

    I dont think anyone is trying to give you shit, there has probably been about 10+ people on this forum selling cheap LED light bars in the last 6 months, and one of the group buys went very bad:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/group-buys/258172-trek-lights-led-light-bar-group-buy.html
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/gr...hts-group-buy-part-2-free-light-giveaway.html
    There are still people who dont have their lights from this group buy months ago. Also some of these cheap chinese lights are very poor quality. So people are just cautious when they see cheap LED light bars for sale. It doesnt help that your original post wasnt very descriptive. There has been a succseful group buy recently done by KMD garage who is a legitimate vendor. If your just some guy selling LED bars out of your basement people are going to be skeptical. Good luck

    Yea i know what you mean, im not selling these out of my garage. I have tested with a bunch of lights and some have faded out but the lights i have chosen have been the best led's, if i have only gotten 2 calls for warranty out of 450 lights then i think that my lights are good, and i will not scam anyone. Im not here to scam im here to sell lights.

    Do you have a website? Maybe some reviews? Pictures of the lights mounted on vehicles and most importantly night shots of the output? More details on the lights, lumen ratings, the type of LED bulbs and wattage. All of these will help you out, if you can give us some reasons to believe that this is a profesionally run business then people will be less skeptical. Some may take your word on it, but as you can see most people wont because of other experiences with other people selling lights.

    I supported KMD garage because he pretty much started off like you...except has actual pictures of his lights, and lumen ratings and a link to his website and Info on the lights, and there were some discrepancies with his lumen counts that we called him on, the man bent over backwards to fix everything and was nothing but transparent about his whole business. I sensed something good there and started PM'ing the guy and he pretty much gave me all the information about him and his fabrication business.

    The point of this novel is: transparency is key. If ANYONE asks a question, you should be doing everything you can to answer. Guaranteed, for every person that comments/questions, there's 100 other people remaining silent waiting for an answer.

    That being said, their really are a boat load of people on here that are selling lights on this site, "starting an LED business"...I've seen the manufacturer specs and prices on the lights coming from China, so I just sit back and laugh at all these companies and their prices. Hey, I'm not ruining shit, I get it, people gotta make money. But still.

    As said above, actions speak louder than words...you post pics of everything said above...even better, you claim that you are just as good as rigid lights?

    I beg to differ, sir. I have put my lights next to rigids of the "same lumen counts" or dam close...and rigids out shine every day. There's a reason why their lights are like 3 times the price.

    My only challenge to you is, prove me wrong.

    I updated the price list with the lumen counts and wattage so go check it out guys and if you need any information, please pm me or post, i don't have a website yet, all of my transactions are done through paypal so it's pretty impossible to scam through that.

    Hey man, not trying to bash anything, just sayin' I've seen alot of guys fail because they don't put that stuff up. Night shots are the key to selling lights
