Brightest and durable 20-22 inch led bar?

I have a Raxiom 21.5 in. Double Row LED Light Bar - Flood/Spot, this thing just sucks, it does not provide any additional light and gets washed out by stock headlamps, anyone know of a good lumen-blinding 21 inch bar to replace this raxiom with?

Well since you have not insulted me today. Im very happy with this weekends install. Nilight 20in bar. Way more out put than I expected. Hard to beat price. Yep not top of the line. But with 3000 plus amazon reviews avg over a 4 out 5 figured id give it a shot.

Were the 3000-4000 reviews mainly fake reviews or real reviews by actual OHV enthusiasts?

This is the one I have been eyeing since somebody else on here posted about it. 3D 120w Light bar LED Phillips 20" spot flood combo off road fog driving 4x4 roof rv - OZ They had done a comparison of some of the lower priced LED bars and it was one of the better ones.

I run an ANNT and I'm totally happy with it. It definitely washes out the LED headlights (which are also awesome) and has not fogged up in spite of being in rain and carwashes, etc. And it's stupid cheap.

You can see in the photo below, I also run a Rigid 10" with amber diffused with a hyper-spot, and on the a-pillars I run Rigid spots at 20° with ANNT diffused at 80° to the front for side illumination. I only mention this because I can make a comparison to the best.

Thanks, ordered their 200watt 20inch bar in combo, yes pricey but looks like the performance is good at 22,000 lumens. Got 74 off their site wide discount they have now.

Which one do you have, notice any unusual battery drain?

I don't see anything that says they are made in Florida... which makes me think they are just like the other 1000 led web-sites selling Chinese gear. Wouldn't they make quite a big deal if they were Made in the USA?

Their videos state so from what's I've seen today. Does the manual show made in usa?

I have a couple of issue with the light. I don't see any light specs. I also don't see the IP rating for the light.

I ended up going with blackoak 20 inch 200w led bar in flood/spot configuration. had a chance to try it out, wow... it outshines my stock led high beams and the throw on the lights is about 700m. A bit pricey but I'll have to say, it's worth it. Good riddance raxiom led bar.

I have had the first gen eyourlife 25" light bar for a couple of years. I made sure all the bolts where tight around the front of the light bar and i siliconed around where the wire comes out of the frame. Been running great!
