    Order placed! Should receive it by next Tues. I like the clean fit and finish of the single row in the lower bumper. I am considering the 32" headlight revolution light bar to mount behind the grill.

    Brackets, harness, switch, IP67 Cree LB and I called and talked to an RC rep, who stated three years on the Cree light. I could have cobbled a light, harness and switch and brackets together maybe a little cheaper. But just decided to purchase this LB with 3 yr warranty and some pretty decent reviews.

    Per RC rep on the phone, as long as you keep your purchase receipt with RC they will replace the cree light bar within three years, lifetime on the brackets. I always kinda chuckle at "lifetime warranties" what ever that means? haha :rolleyes: all good.

    Can you recall if any of those reviews said anything on the quality of weatherproofing? I'm concerned about snow/cold exposure for 6 months out of the year. It's a real element where I am

    Look for an IP rating of IP68 for the best protection/water protection:

    Is IP68 a fully protected product? Top rating rating I'm assuming?

    Anything NOT IP68 Would not be sufficient?

    This bar that patriot''s looking at looks like it's IP67. So that means "dust tight and immersion up to 1m?"

    You can find some cheap led light bars on Ebay that are IP68 rated. I found one that is 28" and 180 watts.

    I'm sure it would be sufficient. I'm not suburging it. The ice builds up on a vehicle, but not to the point of penetration I'm sure

    That's cool, and important that you can return it if the flicker bug sets in. :thumbsup:

    I've had mine mounted for 1.5 years and no problems with it. If I did have a problem, I could buy a bunch of them for what a high-priced one costs...

    IP67 is still really good and will almost certainly never have issues with moisture intrusion, barring some defect, even in extreme environments. Basically it's saying that the item is waterproof up to 1 meter depth, which is the equivalent to about 1/10 atmospheres, or approximately 3.3 PSI.

    IP68 simply means it's better past that depth, and could literally be rated IP68 by being only fractionally more resistant to outside pressure. ~3.5 PSI before water intrusion = IP68.

    I believe your right Ron, great points. I asked the RC folks why their competitors we're so much more expensive? RC said your paying extra $$$ for the replacement "life time" warranty? Again the old life time warranty cliche always kinda makes me chuckle. I wanna say will I have this Tundra and LB for a life time? haha. I have the means to buy the high end LB's but just can't justify the cost vs use.

    I sell and install these rough country bars all the time. They are great lights, everyone is satisfied that gets one. I've done one Tacoma (08) and two Tundras (14-15)... They are great. I've never had one returned... Yet. Granted, they are NOT Rigid Industries, know that going into it, but they are by far brighter than the old school PIAA Bull Bar and roll bar lights of old. Putting one on and firing it up for the first time, is like the first time you replaced halogen bulbs for an HID kit. I have a 20" Amazon bar on my 2010, had it long before I got hooked up with RC, but even that drowns out my LED swapped oem headlights and fogs together. The 30" RC bars are brighter than mine!

    1BadTundra- Great info, thanks for posting up! Glad I took a pass on the higher dollar LB's. This will work for my intended use and install appears straight forward. I do not plan tapping into my ignition wiring, just the battery per instructions.
