    Vs. my Hella 85w bulbs in 'flood' glass/metal housings.

    Sorry I didn't crop them perfectly, but the difference is clear, imho. VERY much worth $90 for the LED bar considering the bulbs were $20 or so each + the housings (completely RIPPED OFF PRICE from TAG when I bought my bumper; something like $115-120? Found them on amazon for half that or so).

    First pic shows no headlights, but using 85Wx2 driving lights (hella bulbs in the glass/metal housings from TAG)

    Second pic shows LED bar atop those Hellas.

    Big difference! Is that a 20 or 30 inch bar?

    I'd get a H3 hid kit and replace the bulbs in the Hellas. Was a big improvement in my KCs

    I use a Samsun REt4rd camera phone. :)

    But thanks! I work on my photography from time to time; strive to get better! Those were 15 second exposures; f/7.1 if I recall.

    Did I read that right? A Samsung retard camera? Amazing what an extra chromosome in a camera will do.

    That's just my snobby way of saying 'complimenting a photogs camera for 'taking good pics' is like complimenting a chef's pots and pans for a good meal.

    :D

    I use a Canon 1D Mark II (N); my carry lens is a Canon 17-40 f/4L

    That's a world of difference light, nice find!

    Second photo is much brighter, even the red tail light.

    I too love LEDs :D

    IMO If you want some real long distance swap some HIDs into those halogens. I did in my Hella 700FF lights and they outside my spot Rigid dually fog lights and my Tough-Light 40" combo bar.
