Looking For A New Off-Road Light Bar? What To Consider

For any off-road vehicle, the ability to see clearly when navigating sometimes treacherous paths is paramount. An off-road lighting bar can help meet this need. While there are a number of off road led light bar options on the market, the harsh reality is that they are not all the same. If you don't know what to look for in a light bar, you could end up with a solution that doesn't fully meet your needs.

LED Quality

It's a good idea to look for a light bar system that is designed with Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights. In a nutshell, this style of light bulb is far more advanced than the traditional style of bulb. Consequently, they are designed to last longer, making them a more economic option.

Additionally, LED lights are brighter than traditional light bulbs. In addition to increasing your ability to see the road ahead, these lights also make it easier for others to see you, which is an important part of safety.

Off-Road Rating

Just because the label says the light bar is designed for off-road use, this doesn't necessarily mean it's true. A light bar that is truly designed to withstand the abuse of off-road driving conditions should have an Ingress Protection (IP) code. A product's IP rating is assigned based on its ability to withstand exposure to harsh elements like moisture, dust, dirt and other debris.

The better the product holds up through these conditions, the higher its rating. If the light bar doesn't actually have an IP code assigned to it, it isn't actually off-road quality and could easily get damaged during one of your expeditions. Always make sure the light bar is truly made for off-road driving conditions.

All-In-One Solution

It's also a good idea to look for light bar options that are packaged as an all-in-one solution as this will only make the installation process easier. This is especially important if you aren't familiar with light bars. All-in-one light bars come with all the adapters and other accessories you need to install the light.

When you purchase these items separately, you could end up with an adapter that doesn't fit the light or your vehicle. In addition to having all the parts you need, all-in-one solutions are also designed for use with a specific style of vehicle, eliminating the risk of the light bar not working for your particular vehicle.

If you want to add a splash of color to your off-road vehicle, LED light bulbs are also available in a wide-range of color selection.
