    So the price is right obviously. I like that its slim for install into my lower valance. I could fit 32" but 31" is i fine by me, should still fill it in nicely.

    But I'm curious what you guys think about the claimed 14,500 lumens, seems high in comparison the bars with dual rows of 3 watt lights. Also its got a 20degree flood, 10 degree spot. Where the most common being a 60/30 spot/flood. What kind of output should I expect from that? I don't want anything too focused, its for driving after all

    I think its more like 12k lumens. Been doing some searching and the same exact bars are listed as 12k. Probly a case of misinterpretation/ exaggeration on those numbers like I see a lot of times on these china retailers. But its a sweet deal! Looks like after shipping to you it comes to $141.03. Still cheaper than the same slim bar listed here;
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/32Inch-150W...r_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5d4e528753

    EDIT: these slim ones are basically rigid clones. Rigid shows theirs as;
    SR version being 177 watts/11,250 lumens
    http://www.rigidindustries.com/led-lighting/93031

    SR2 version being 143 watts/13,500 lumens
    http://www.rigidindustries.com/led-lighting/93131

    So sounds about right at 12k lumens for the clones.

    I suggest this one over that one, as well as the slim one. That one looks like a really cheap knock-off of the vision x evo prime.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/30INCH-180W...Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr&hash=item5d4430eed0
    This one is an exact replica of the evo prime. same exact design just with cree's instead of luminous...Bigger/deeper reflectors with sweet optics. This bar really throws. I have all these on my truck. 30" would be sweet in there, if it fits just as good. Still pretty slim so check your measurements and see. I bet it fills in better. keep in mind this bar does not come with end cap leg mounts. But does have holes in the end so either a 1/4" threaded rod through the length of the bar would work. Or bolts, if you can get the internal rod that is used for the bottom mounts it comes with, removed. They are pressed in there pretty good.

    That looks like a sweet bar too. I was bored late last night so I ended up buying the first slim one I asked about lol. Except I found it on Amazon with 2 year warranty. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KW2QGWM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    paired it with a wiring kit here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QYIGJ5W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Cant wait too toss it in :), Ill post a review once installed. So many options out there with these damn bars its ridiculous. With such a huge price range.

    I have no experience with any other light bars but man this light is bright. 100% satisfied with it. It fits PERFECTLY in the lower valance. You can mount as is with the included bracked behind the grille of the lower valance. Or cut out the grille, add a simple 4x4 angle bracket with a gusset for stregth to the bumper support. Then off that flush with the bumper.

    The wiring kit I got was perfect lengths and of good quality. The switch has light bleeding out of the sides and bottom of the rocker which looks cheap but Ill keep it for now. Maybe replace with a switch from air on board.

    Id recommend this light to anybody thinking of an affordable option. For was 95% of us are doing with our trucks its perfect. Its not 10 and 20 degree focused like the add suggests. Its got lots of flood. The wiring kit also has a second line for another light right in the perfect spot to put a smaller light bar in the man grille. I'm now a light addict lol.

    So far my phone hasnt captured the brightness very good in the streets. Ill give it another shot tonight to try and get some sort of comparison.

    Install was really easy. Hardest part was making the cutout for the switch nice and clean. That just takes patients, plastic is a bitch to work with.
