I just put in an order for a few different bars from Hanma.
They use CREE leds (same as Rigid) and PC lens.
My 50" bar was $1200 less than the same size Rigid.
Even if the light output is slightly less, it is worth the savings.
We are talking about auxiliary lights here....as in, additional/secondary/optional lights. Who cares if my 'cheap' light has 5% less output of light than the brand 300X more expensive....

And I meant all the lights Illumination LEDs sells have removable lenses. Not the illumination cells. By the way haha.

Huge pic alert. However, if you click on the full size image, you can see what I'm referring to.
Compared to an import light with hardened glass (note this isn't one I sell, but gives a good comparison).
|03-21-2013 09:23 AM|
And as to the lenses issues, all the lenses illumination sells are completely removable/replaceable. This is not so with many of the glass lenses as they are glued in to place.
I'll put it this way. Rigid uses PC lenses. Haven't heard many complaints from those guys.
I've done my share of studying and I completely understand your reservations.

MRT2, the disadvantage of polycarbonate can be seen with cars with polycarb headlights (most cars produced in the last ten+ years). While polycarbonate is more resistant to breakage, it is more easily scratched than glass and gets cloudy and yellow over time.
LED light bars come with both PC or hardened shatter resistant glass depending on what one you go with. As with anything with Jeeps and other offroad rigs, there's always trade-offs and compromises that have to be made. Glass has advantages PC doesn't and PC has advantages that glass doesn't.
The good thing is that either on light bars with PC or ones with hardened glass, that piece is fairly easily replaceable.
|03-21-2013 12:51 AM|
Also, how did you shatter your LED light? Rock/Pebble, or was it from the heat the LED produces? (when it was broken, did any of the LED's stop functioning?)
Sorry for all the questions, wanted to make an educated decision before making a purchase.

I would say go with Rigid or BullDog lighting but they are expensive and made in USA. The only reason I use them is because my friend is sponsored by them and I can get deals on the lights.
|03-18-2013 11:43 PM|
|CarlosChavira||That is a good price for sure!|

The tempered glass is the downfall with those... Glass does this.
PC is the same thing rigid runs, and is referred to as Unbreakable.

I run a 50" LED bar on my YJ from Illumination LEDs. It's the best mod I've made for my YJ. Definitely the best prices I've seen anywhere. 50" is only $599.99 w/ free shipping. And it's rated at 21,120 lumens. Ridiculous output. www.illuminationLeds.com
High beams and KC driving lights
50" led bar.
Pictures don't do it justice!

|Dmactampa||I just installed the Black Box Logistics 50" with Poison Spyder mounts and so far the quality seems very good. I was a little nervous but it has good weight, strong housing and glass for possible rocks on hwy. The only thing I don't like is this high pitched whining I get now because of the wind passing over the heatsinks. This thing is crazy bright!! Off road use only without a doubt. Looks like lighting striking in front of you when you turn it on.|

|andrew127||One of the guys in my Jeep club bought a cheap light bar off ebay, 24" for $250 I think, POS. Thing lasted about a month and they are so cheaply made that nothing sealed properly. He had it mounted above his winch and the first mud hole he went through almost completely filled the housing. So after taking it apart, cleaning it and properly re sealing it, it worked a little bit better. Then about a week after that the circuitry inside shorted out and random lights just gave up working. All in all he ended up returning it and buying a Rigid 48" to go above the winshield and he couldnt be happier. So honestly dont cheap out on your lighting, especially with the ebay ones. Its like a winch, you get what you pay for.|
