    I seeing that bar prices online vary dramatically. From $138 to $1038

    Any reason I'm seeing such variance? Is it the same light and I'd so, why not go $138?

    I'm asking these quesion because I don't have experience with aftermarket lighting.

    Branding is a big part of that.. but also quality goes hand in hand with the pricing. Light output and longevity/durability of the bar itself will be greater on a more expensive light bar than a cheaper one in most cases. The NSV light bar I have is pricey but it comes with everything needed to install. There's also a cool custom switch panel that mounts underneath the A/C controls, making it look almost factory. Same goes for the light bar, it mounts directly into the hood bulge with no cutting whatsoever. I'm very impressed with the light bar, and I'm glad I forked out the cash in order to get it! I would recommend it to anybody that's on the fence about getting one for sure. I've been wanting to do a review thread on it, just haven't quite got around to it.

    I saw your photos on television other thread. Looks awesome! I'm not one to go the cheaper route just because it's cheaper. In this build I'm going top shelf on the important items and a light bar is an important piece to the puzzle. I just want lots of options to look at but the NSV looks like a great option

    That's the same thing I've been doing, it takes longer doing so but it looks a lot better when you take the time to get exactly what you want rather than settle :thumbsup:

    I did. It's badass though a lot of money. I'm having a hard time coughing up a grand for a strip of lights....but I might just do it:rolleyes:

    Some things you can skimp on, that is for sure. This probably isn't one of them. All my off-roading buddies that get cheap LED light bars end up regretting it very quickly.

    That is just my experience. Would I spend 1000.00 on a light bar? That is a big hell no. That is just me though.

    Single row SR-30 Rigid. I think these are them. I'll need to get my take measure out to check. They are bright but I've ran Chinese brands that are just as nice for a fraction of the cost. I just like how clean it looks to me.

    This is my view from inside my truck with my 40" Rigid, 40" NSV hood bulge, LED headlights and my LED fog lights. I was on an incline so my lights aren't projecting as far as they normally do. IMG_6072.jpg

    Plenty planned thanks to all of you.
    And what are the details? I'd be interested in your set-up because it's slick but other than your pics you've shared nothing that helps me. Help me out, please.
