Rigid Industry Light Bar

Any advice as to which beam color and beam pattern is best for the rigid industry 10" light bar? I want to light up the trail and perhaps use as utility to light up a campsite. Options are white or amber, flood or spot, or both. What's the skinny on flood vs. spot?

The danger in using this for a camp light is the overwhelming brightness, you can't look at it. I have 2 dually diffused above my spare and have to angle them down to the ground to make it bearable.
10" SR series is a good balance for a trail light.

I run a 50" and 2 D2s , and to be honest the D2s are plenty .but a few of my friends run the E10 flood spot combo and it awsome.. I like that setup with the white lights, I'm not a fan of the amber..

Sorry for the incomplete answer....I'm not a fan of amber and flood spreads the light over a wide area and sacrifices distance whereas spot has a narrower field and projects to a longer distance. Using a combo gets you both benefits.

Yeah, the lights are ridiculously bright for using at a campsite, did it about a month ago and it can get a bit unberable. Had to move the jeep to the other side of the tent and use the tent as a diffuser, that worked out great.

Great choice. Like radrubi said, the D2'S are plenty, and the Dually D2'S are even better, but I love my SR series 10" combo pattern. It fills in the center perfectly between the Dually D2's with "driving" pattern.

All lights on in this pic.


Pic added for comparison to stock headlights on HIGH alone.

do you have the D2's mounted on the winshield frame? I would like to see a pic of your light setup, if possible.

dont forget, you can also just order lense colors also. so if you want to change your lighting color , its just a quick snap on to change the color.
If you dont have quotes on what your looking for, and you want the best pricing, give me a call

Great Choice by the way...

No. I have the Rugged Ridge snorkel so I can't windshield mount the lights, they're all bumper mounted. The 10" uses the Poison Spyder fairlead mount.

Here's a couple pics.

Don't know if you ordered it yet ? I've a 12" Rigid E series lightbar mounted in front hood scoop - for driving and wheeling I'd prefer to have gone with the spot pattern only, instead of the combo beam I chose. The light is incredible but I've no use for lighting up the tops of trees and would prefer a longer distance reach. I chose the set-up and now know, so not bitching, just offering advice. With that said, this wide radius pattern is probably perfect for you as a camping set-up, so I may have confirmed your combo choice instead of talking you into a spot beam. Enjoy.

thanks for the pics and the feedback guys. I was leaning in the direction of the PSC winch plate mount with the 10", seeing your jeep has confirmed this approach for me. It will look clean on the brawler lite.

cheers!
