Rigid Midnight edition led bar

I'm planning of installing a light bar on the front lower grill and I like the Rigid Midnight edition led bars, but I don't want to spend that much money on a light bar at this time - I have other mods that need to come first. Is there another company that makes a bar like this preferably in a flood/spot combo:

E-Series 30" Midnight Edition White | Rigid Industries

Thanks in advance

Re: Rigid Midnight edition led bar

Do you have pictures of what you're trying to do? I just installed one in the lower mesh of my grill. it was ~40$, flood and spot. 6D Cree's. However they are not dark colored like that.

1000$ you're crazy ahaha. I feel like you could just custom cut some tinted polycarbonate and have the exact same effect for about 60$ out the door

Re: Rigid Midnight edition led bar

Pretty much all the LED light bars on Amazon are "combo" beams (spot/flood) and are usually dirt cheap around $50. Some members here have gambled on the cheapo ones and have been pleasantly surprised. The money you'll save on the Rigid you could by 20 cheapo ones...

Lifetime LED has a series of black bars. Their 30" is $300 cheaper than Rigid and almost twice as bright (so they claim). I've been looking at the 20" for my bumper, but there are so many options out there it's tough to decide.

Agreed, I'm on my 3rd light bar just because they're cheap and my preferences have changed as well as my needs. Total I've got less than $350 in 3 front bars and eight 4" cubes and they are excellent lights. Nothing against rigid and I really like some of their stuff no way I can justify that spend when there are so many really good and cheap alternatives.

This is interesting. Is the whole thing black? It's hard to tell since the others pictures don't look black. 420w? Would I need another battery? 25500 lumens? Is there ever such a thing as too bright?

I'm not very familiar with wattage, electronics, etc yet, but do you need a battery for something like that?
