    i know you stated a price range but i have used this:

    http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?...2-49-Line-Of-Fire-Tailgate-Light-Bar&p_cat=25

    i have replaced it twice in the ten years i have owned it. once was for an accident - it actually survived but was lens cracked way beyond repair. second time was more or less because the lens had hazed over enough over 8 years of use. still worked when i replaced it.

    I kinda like them but around here where I am when I see them (and that's a lot) they ALWAYS seem to have some LEDs out. I don't even know if they know they are out because they can't see it... Haha

    as far as i know, i never had an issue with them going out. Recon offers a newer version but the physical size of it interferes with the tailgate opening.
