    Anyone have experience with this particular light bar? Im looking at the 30" SAE SR Series.

    Looking for something safe to use on the road mostly because I find that in a lot of cases, the stock headlights just dont provide enough light. Any experiences with functionality, install, etc? Or even a recommendation for something else similar?

    The SAE series light bars are a ‘driving’ pattern, which is a high beam pattern, meaning while street legal you could only use them when nobody is ahead of you, just like your high beams. Driving is an ideal patter for the street though, as it gives wider more useful coverage than spot and projects much further than flood.

    However, if you want more light from your 3rd Gen headlights, check out this thread:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/3rd-gen-hid-vs-led-vs-halogen-h11-projector-headlights.589465/

    Then spend $20 and buy 2 of these bulbs, trim the inner plastic tab and put them in your low beams:

    See the comments in that thread how people are completely blown away at what a simple bulb change will do for the headlights.
