Re: Bean's New Dip {PROJECT ZR2}

hmm, got any pics? and what brand do you have? Really as long as i get equal or better performance out of LED i would be happy. another plus is the durability and wont crack if you simply lean on them

Re: Bean's New Dip {PROJECT ZR2}

I've been looking at LED light bars, the prices seem to vary a lot between brands, but I noticed just about all of them use Cree branded LEDs, Cree makes various sizes and outputs so if you see 2 bars with the same LEDs inside it'd just be up to the case design to determine how well the light will work.

I saw some of the light bars list the cree part number they used.

If I recall I saw that Moonshiners and Rigid were using the same LEDs but rigid was double the price.

Re: Bean's New Dip {PROJECT ZR2}

I went with a cheap ebay one. If it's not enough light, you can get more than double the # of LEDs with ebay as opposed to the brand name ones.
Which I guarentee will be more light overall.
I'm sure quality/reliability suffers some, but so far I haven't had any issues.
But being on my roof and set back and inset on my roof basket it's pretty well protected.

it came packaged pretty well too


This is how i mounted it


and comparison pics to the headlights (relayed with 10ga)






also these are cell phone pics so exposure etc are not held constant
and this is before i spent time aiming it. I think it's pointed a touch downwards in these pics.

Good deal, I didnt go with an ebay brand, but as long as i get somewhat the same output. When i had it on spots it would be pretty ridiculous, but shown below is the combo. throws a ton of light on the sides that isnt visible with the pic. I'm pretty sure its the same way with led bar pics as the camera does not pic up as good as the eye of course.

So.... I'm sure these are strictly "off road use only" correct? I have a not oft used 2 lane blacktop that's deer laden that I take the kids home on, and man that would sure do the trick

Re: Bean's New Dip {PROJECT ZR2}

I use it on the road all the time. just so long as i dont see any headlights within a few miles or if anybody is in front of me. but around here there is a lot of country roads and blacktop with nobody on it.
