led lights

Honestly, how well do the led lights work compared to regular lights. My regular flashlight works alot better than the led one I had so was curious if led's are worth the money.

Absolutely...they have come alooong way not only in light output but also in price.
In fact I just bought a flashlight combo from Cosco, 500 lumen LED it is ABSOLUTELY unbelievable how bright it is for $19 for 2 WITH batteries!!!
Puts a mag light to shame!!! Just bought a 20" LED light bar for $229 shipped! Unreal how bright for amp draw...

Look at lumens to amp draw. You want high lumens and low amp.

You need a better (more expensive) LED flashlight to compare to your regular flashlight. Not a cheapie one with 6 or 66 little LED bulbs where the reflector is. Look at the streamlights with Cree bulbs. Then you'll say "my halogen flashlight sucks compared to an LED flashlight!"

Still skeptical, however, on the output of these new LED bars... Seems like they do put out a lot of light, but it's all close to you, right in front of the jeep. At least, that's how they appear in pictures. I want long range LED stuff.

Once you go led you never go back! Also good for changing interior lighting as well

Superbrightled.com is a good source

Here at O'Hare airport, the City Operations vehicles use LED light bars (I don't know what brand), and I can tell you that they put out a lot of bright light and it goes a long way. They used those vehicles to do runway inspections at night and you can see almost all the way down 2 miles of runway.
