Choosing the best Led Light Bar for your UTV

0 Comments


There is a LOT of information out there about LED Lighting.  We recently added the entire line from GG Lighting, so I thought I would highlight a few things to consider and help you make an informed purchase:

I will use my light bar(s) to compliment my stock vehicle lighting

Examples:

Putting a small light bar on your front bumper or behind your grill for minimal off-road use to be used in dark areas such as fire access roads in the forest or to simply add a safety factor when you have a hard time seeing at night with your factory headlights and / or fog lights.

We suggest our G3D series for this application. Our G3D Series will provide a very usable spot and flood beam pattern out of the same bar. This bar is not designed for extreme projection and it is more targeted towards an “average” off-road use application where you need to see everything in front of your vehicle and to the sides.

I will use my light bar(s) for slow speed off-road use

Examples:

Putting a light bar on your 4×4 vehicle for slow rock crawling or slow off-roading. Another example would be putting a light bar on a vehicle that is not capable of high speeds / will not be used at high speeds.

We suggest our G4D series for this application. Our G3D Series will provide a very usable spot and flood beam pattern out of the same bar. This bar has more projection and a wider spread compared to our G3D and it is more targeted towards a slow speed off-road use application where you need to see everything in front of your vehicle and to the sides.

I will use my light bar(s) for high speed off-road use

Examples:

Putting a light bar on a vehicle capable of speeds up to 75 mph where you need to see what is directly in front of the vehicle.

We suggest our G3 series for this application. Our G3 Series will provide an ultra spot beam pattern. This bar provides a complete spot pattern to reach out in front of you to see what you are traveling over at high speeds. This series will not provide any type of flood beam pattern. G3 series are best mounted on top of a vehicle and complimented with a lower G3D / G4D series LED Bar in front of the vehicle to take care of what is directly in front of you.

I will use my light bar(s) over 75 mph

Examples:

Putting a light bar on a vehicle that are capable of speeds over 75mph. If you have a race vehicle or a high speed prerunner / off-road vehicle and need to see far out in front of the vehicle.

We suggest our G4 series for this application. Our G4 Series will provide an ultra spot beam pattern. This bar provides a complete spot pattern to reach out in front of you to see what you are traveling over at high speeds. This series is modular and has the option to change the lenses out between spot and diffused so you can dial the beam pattern in. G4 series are complete versatile and can be used either on top of the vehicle in a spot beam pattern, or in front of the vehicle in a flood beam pattern.  G4 series LED Bars have been extensively tested on our Class 1 race vehicles at speeds in excess to 130mph.

I will use my light bar(s) in dusty conditions

Examples:

Putting a light bar on the front of your vehicle to see thru dusty situations such as following along in a caravan off-road or in a race application.

We suggest our G4 or G4SR series with a green lens for this application. These series are modular and you can change the lenses out on them. We suggest either one of these series (G4 being a double row, G3SR being a single row) if you are in need of a good dust light. Green lighting works far more effectively in cutting thru the dust than amber does. We are the first company to do extensive testing with this color and you will see it on a lot of our race vehicles. We strongly suggest running dust lights in front of the vehicle. You want your dust light to cut under the dust. Dust lights do not work as well on top of the vehicle.

I will use my light bar on the street

Don’t do it. Not only is it illegal, it is also extremely inconsiderate to other drivers.

 

We also carry the full line of Sirius LED Light Bars – these are the lights we have been using the last two years with AMAZING results.  Here are the quick links to both GREAT product lines:
