20" LED light bar from Ebay?

Anybody have any recommendations for a light bar? Not looking to break the bank, not really an off-roader, more for aesthetics. Just don't want to buy something cheap and in a year it's rusted out.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I bought an E-Yourlife from Amazon, and installed it on my front bumper hoop a couple of weeks ago. It seems to be well constructed, and is hella-bright. I did use flowable silicone around the glass to make sure it would be weatherproof, and also painted the brackets (no idea why they aren't black from the factory), but other than that it was perfect out of the box. And at $80, it's hard to beat the price.

I bought a 52" on eBay about 2 yrs ago for $168. It works great and has held up well being exposed to road salt for 2 winters. And if it were to get stolen I won't feel too violated.

Not to hijack...but how's the road noise with that light bar...top on and off?

I bought an E Your Life on Amazon as well, I think it is the 21" Spot/Flood combo. I've had it on for 6 months and so far, so good. For $80, I really can't complain.

Is it possible to wire in the light bar to the factory fog lights so there isn't an extra switch? And your truck looks great.

LED's draw pretty low power so it may be possible to wire them directly to the fogs. But I would want to check the current draw of the LED bar and see what the factory fogs are fused at and what size wire they use before I was comfortable with it. Electricity scares me as it is very easy to burn your Jeep to the ground. Most people would recommend that you run a stand alone relay and fuse set up with any additional lights. Those can be bought as a kit on Amazon for $18, I would say the safest bet is to go that route. They come with instructions and are not that difficult for even a first timer to wire up.

No problem man. The E Your Life lights work very well for the money. Anyone who tells you have HAVE to buy a Ridged or any other $800+ light bar most likely sells high end light bars. The cheaper ones work just fine unless you make your living driving a desert race vehicle.

Sucks with a soft top. Whistles a little. A lot of turbulent air over the soft top on the highway.
I have a spider web shade under my soft top and I keep a packing blanket between the shade and top to cut some of the noise. Actually not very noisy with top down because air not buffeting the vinyl top

I got my Eyourlife from Amazon for $60 shipped. I hooked it up to my battery to test it, but that is as far as I've gotten. Been sitting on the garage floor for a long time now.

The owners of derby city LEDs are in my jeep club, they are branded lights with lifetime warranties available, depending on the light. Prices are competitive to the offbrands on eBay and Amazon. Check them out at www.derbycityleds.com. ** I am NOT affiliated with them other than being in the same Jeep club and receive NO compensation, just trying to help out some great folks get their business up and running**

People have been really happy with the Raxiom LED Light Bars. They're a little less expensive than some of the others, but still have a lifetime warranty and throw a ton of light! Let me know if you'd like a quote on anything!

another vote for eyourlife. I got 25" spot flood combo! Just make sure all the allen key nuts are tight and put some clear silicon around the base and power wire.

I'm glad to hear you guys have been happy with your eBay lights! I'm all for saving money where I can and if they hold up in the long run and I can save some money for other mods I'm all in! Keep us updated on how they hold up over time.
