LED bar lights are your best option when looking for bright lighting. You are at liberty to engage in night fishing, trailblazing or holding picnics in the dark. Light bars are a life saver for those confronted with late night emergency situations. When compared to the traditional floodlights, the LED technology is long lasting, lightweight, safe and energy efficient. The lights are dazzlingly bright and have four full rows of quad-designed LED light bars.
Those looking for lights that add to the vehicle’s appearance and those who want to use the lights for night muddling should pick the LED lights. LED lights add flare to your Jeep, SUV, ATV or any other vehicle. They are way better than the glow emitted from neon lights. For those looking for the most suitable LED light that is affordable in the market, here is a buying guide.
LED bar lights buying guide that you should know
Choose quality light bars
The general rule remains to choose a light that best matches the vehicle. If the windshield is curved at the top, a curved bar is your best option. Curved bars such as the POWLAB 4D Cree 52 Inch are best suited when maneuvering in difficult, dark terrain. They emit super bright light that works well in areas that need additional illumination. The light emitted has a very powerful beam. This does not mean that we are discrediting the capability of other light beams.
However, it is important to point out that these light beams seem to be the most preferred. The straight bars emit light that is displayed right at the front as opposed to around. This remains very popular among those who use their vehicles on paved roads or those driving slowly on off-roads. This is the situations that can cause the motorists to drive slowly off-road and react to various hazards. Another important consideration is the housing.
Housing of the bar
This can give you an overview of the quality of the light bar even without checking its other features. The most recommended option is metal housing which remains heavy duty. To get the most out of your light bar, you must ensure it remains dustproof, waterproof and weatherproof. Those using them on a UTV and ATV will need all the durability they can get.
Where can you place the led light bar?
- Above the windshield – Truck, Jeep, and other off-road vehicles owners consider this a popular option. The over-the-windscreen look of the bar is incredible. In addition to the good appearance, it emits better light. Alternatively, you can opt for other sizes.
- Lower windshield – You can have small light pods, or bars, mounted on the lower section of your windshield. They deliver a better light angle and greater visibility. The smaller pod lights are better of mounted here than on the bumpers. They are less costly than the big lights and attract much less attention. They remain a common feature in UTV and ATVs which are unable to accommodate the heavy duty bars.
- Front bumper – A lot of off-road vehicles have their LED lights. You can have your lights mounted on the front bumper where it is much easier to do your wiring. The only demerit is the fact that your LED light bars remain at the same level as your headlights.
