Re: Making a light bar for an 01 dodge rango Reply #15 – December 09, 2013, 09:56:23 pm Quote from: sicivicdude on December 09, 2013, 02:35:24 pm Wha? I wasn't directing it at anyone, actually. Only pointing out that saying that any particular brand of anything is junk (just by virtue of being that brand) is a little narrow minded. Sort of brand-ist if you will. #HMM Personal experiences and professional opinions are one thing (as long as they are quantified). Someone saying "I once had XXXX and it was junk" or "I work on XXXX all the time and I won't own one" is helpful. Saying "XXXX is junk because I've heard it's junk" or " XXXX is junk but I've never had one, just seen a bunch of them broke down" isn't very helpful, now is it? Now, back to the conversation about a light bar. What are the plans for the lighting itself, just 2() 6" halogen lights? Most every offroad light out there uses 55 watt halogen bulbs. At ~14V this is roughly 4 amps draw per light. Factor this into wiring sizing. If you're looking at only 2 lamps you can get away with smaller size wire than if you are running a bank of 8 lights... If you do decide to get an LED light bank, they consume considerably less power than halogen lights. Something on the order of 1/10th the power consumption for a given amount of lumens. I, personally, don't like the glare produced by high intensity "blue" light (either HID or LED) but they do use considerably less power and each bulb will last a lot longer (although, that is sometimes drawnback by the fact that they are made MUCH harder to replace or non-replacable!).I Mentioned Good Sized Wiring . He Don't get on much so It may get built before he logs back on .
