Great LED bar for cheap review

First off this I have no relation to this company, other than I bought there 24 inch light bar for 80 dollars, and it is amazing! Full metal, EXTREMELY bright, is a combo light with Spot and Flood. I drilled it right into my hood and its my favorite of all my lights. Here's some pics, I will also post a link to where to buy it (amazon)

This is the Eyourlife 24 inch light bar.

I got that same light for Christmas! How did you mount it? And what did you do for wiring?

It's great! Centered it on my hood and just drilled into my hood, used washers on the underside to make it more secure. Drilled a hole for the wiring to go down into and used one of those rubber surroundings so it'd be watertight (can't remember what those are called!) then wired it from there. Put the switch on my center console right by my gear shifter.

I'm torn between putting on my bumper for now until I build my new one and then move it to my hood or just putting on my hood

Looks great. Can you share a thorough install process for the Cree dual purpose lights? I am assuming they would be connected to some sort of a 3 way switch to accommodate the off/fog/spot options. Any direction on the subject would be appreciated.

no the flood and spot lights both come on at the same time just wire it to a normal toggle switch

Thanks for the suggestion but I think that would defeat the purpose of the multiple options which is something I would want to maintain. Product is described as having the following feature-
ul{list-style:none;}
  • Three modes: Only flood light on/only spot light on/flood & spot light on
Hopefully there is somebody out there they has wired these for their intended multi-purpose and can share the knowledge.

the wire on the light only has a positive and a negative no third wire for that so I'm not sure if the listing is correct. Most light bars are either on or off. You can't usually pick spot or flood. My dad has a rigid 50" and it's either on or off. The way the bars are set up is flood:spot:flood so the lighting is more full.

Ah, correct you are. My fault. I am getting all these lights mixed up as I scour the web for the best value/function on LEDs. As a matter a fact it even answered my question on the Q & A under the product description...
'Does "combo" mean that this is ALWAYS BOTH flood AND spot? Or can it be wired to be combo/ flood-only/ or spot-only?
Nov 29, 2013
Yes everytime it's on the entire bar is always lit. Flood and spot on at the same time.'

So, the other light I was considering was this...2X Hot Sale 7" 72W 5040LM CREE Spot Flood Combo Beam LED Worl Light Bar Driving | eBayand perhaps running 4 of them along the top of my roof rack. Would still need help on the hook up but at this point with a different product, I should probably start a whole new thread. Thanks again.

I got the same light on EBay for $80 and am going to mount it in the same spot. Does it vibrate or flex because of how thin the hood is. I bough a 1/4" strip of aluminum and was going to put it on the under side of the hood to stiffen it up. And it is super bright.

Buying their 50" bar right now. I'll try to remember to post some reviews later on once it's installed.

I would highly recommend doing this. About a year ago I mounted one of these like this. I drilled two small holes just big enough for bolts to fit through. In the process of getting it tightened up enough to be comfortable with it, the bolts pulled upward on the hood metal. So, I now have these upward pointing divots surrounding the holes. Not a big deal, but a little something stiffer underneath probably would have avoided that. I used small washers on the bolts, but it wasn't enough since the mounting legs have rubber feet and it takes quite a bit of tightening to make them secure. Looks sweet though, and I can't tell if the OP did this but I removed one of the rubber hood/windshield stoppers and ran the wire right through it. Works perfectly.

Probably something along the lines of I wanted to and I could, so I did it. Still like it by the way. Just a word of caution to others who are clearly contemplating the same. FYI, now they actually make a bracket to mount to the hood hinges. It can be found here:

Motobilt does make hood mounts for 20" light bars, but the are for the higher quality lights. I am not sure those posted above are the same width....they could be. I know those use a much smaller mounting bolt though, and the holes on the MB mounts are for the larger bolts supplied with the better lights.

To hell with it... Just purchased one, what do I have to lose?? $83 sure beats $600 rigid. Ya sure the rigid will last 20 years (maybe) but its not like lighting is life or death equipment. I can put up with buying 3 or 4 more when they go out and still spending half as much.

I did notice some of the reviews had issues with waterproofing, so I will be taking the precaution and running a silicon bead on seams.

Good to know. I may still end up getting a set of those brackets and trying it out. I don't see the hole size as too big of a problem, as that could be addressed with mounting hardware. Now if the spacing is a bit off, I would probably just adjust the bends slightly to compensate for that. At any rate, it's a pretty good option that seems like it might just need a bit of adjustment. Honestly, the fixture housings all more or less look the same.

It says it does flood and spot, how well does it actually do on the spotlight side of things?
