LED Light Bar Suggestions
 
I'm kind of going the way of turning my Outback into a pseudo-utility-wagon. One of the things I've always wanted to do is add some flood lights to the roof of the car (in the style of Will Smith's Ford Expedition in the movie I Am Legend) so that I can light up the entire area around the car at night. At first, I was thinking a bunch of spot lights the way that Expedition had things set up, but now I'm thinking light bars would be a better option. In addition, I want them to be LED-powered, both for the reliability, the look, and most importantly, the low power draw.
I am trying to gauge how much a setup like this would cost. I've found all sorts of light bars online - everything from really cheap, dim, crappy wouldn't-last-five-minutes-on-a-car bars, to $3,000, four-foot-long, lifetime warranty, 30,000 lumen bars. Does anyone have any good recommendations for something, or even any better suggestions for such a setup? Thanks!

TRS recently came out with just what you're asking about.

The Olympus rally cars had something similiar to this mounted on their hoods...very bright, blinding in some cases.

I have something similar to this mounted on my truck, but mine was uber expensive... but well worth the cost when you're driving at night in the middle of nowhere.

Rigid industries is one of the most reputable names in the LED industry. I currently have a set of them on my LGT. They aren't cheap but will provide great light. I would recommend their SR lights for the sides (SingleRow) and perhaps a 20 inch E series (dual row up front)

I have the Dually's they have 4 LEDs each and are bright as hell.... like blind people at night bright.

You could probably get away with 3 dually D2's (6 led's per light) on each side 2 on rear and a 10 or 20 inch bar in front. 4wheelparts had a 20% off deal i took advantage of.

This thread has given me new incentive to start pushing my resume around again, lol.
