    Ive had a 40" Voltex led lightbar for like 2 years now and not a thing has gone wrong yet. I love it, all worth the $300 i spent on it I have a few pics of it here.

    I have a 30 or 36 inch voltex. So far it has been ok. For the price it is better than expected.

    By the looks of them I personally wouldnt buy them . They looke like the wires a a bit flimsy and the led structure is not to goot either . Also leds are sensitive to moisture really bad and with them being in parking lights and stuff i wouldnt do it.

    Did they have some sort of fire sale last year and try and flood the market? Prices for a 4' amber are $700. You could get a used brand name bar for that, that would prob last longer.

    Well, im only 18, and my bros house along with our shop got destroyed by a tornado in early june... Maybe u saw it on the national news... So i dont have $1000 to spend on a led light bar, cuz im rebuilding a brand new truck that got destroyed...

    So have u honestly ever used voltex, or had a friend with them... Or are u just saying that? If u have had a bad experience with them, please tell me and i will understand...

    Or if u wanna give me $700 to help me buy some american brand which was most likely made in japan anyway... But im sure its way better for 3x the price ehh?

    Why not save the $300 and put it towards rebuilding your shop/bros house if money is tight? Didn't you have insurance on everything? China and Japan are totally different. The japs make good stuff and Chinese make crap copy's of American and Japanese stuff. Id rather buy a product that was made in Japan then USA or China.

    His house was insured, and the shop, the 09, but his 99 chevy 2500 wasnt, or his 19 suburban, or his fiances car... and a few mowers, salter, and some other stuff...

    Im honestly looking at the $150 bar plus shipping and handling... They already have a another house... and are still looking around... But i want some lights for safety, because accidents are no fun, and some places we plow have idiots...

    So have or haven't u used voltex? and i dont see how china's stuff is worse than japans... Just saying your logic... isnt logical... Is any1 else with me on this one?

    There will always be idiots. If you think a $100 or $1000 lights will stop them I've got news for you. It wont. Buy a cheap $25 round revolting light and make some $$$ this winter and when you are in a better spot financially get a nicer expensive one.
