I'm looking for a 20" LED lightbar.  I've got a 12" Rigid and it has been very good but this will go on a SxS and and will get beaten pretty good.  I do realize that Rigid is top notch but I'm not looking to spend $450.  Any suggestions?  I'd prefer something I can buy on Amazon as I've got a bunch of amazon gift cards.  Looking for the $100-$150 range with throw and flood.

I've had a cheap  Ebay 30" bar on my RZR for  4 years and 4000 miles, it still turns on every time.

I've got a 20" Ebay light that one of the mods here recommended a couple of years ago (Striker maybe?  I can't recall)- no problems so far.  Try to find one with a glass lens, the plastics all discolor after a while, then when you get it pull the lens off and put a thin bead of silicon on it.  Check the various 4wd forums and you'll usually find recommendations for various brands that folks have had good luck with as well as ones to stay away from.

I stick to Rigid.  The performance and quality can't be matched.  No Chinese knock off will compare or give same replacemet warranty.

My wife really likes my 12" Rigid too.  She said dark nights wouldn't be the same without it.

For the last Baja 500 they required 'driving lights' for a section of the race that went onto the highway, basically something a little dimmer than 12 8" KC HID's so we slapped on a set of the cheapest LED pods Amazon had available and went racing.  I expected them to work for roughly 0.87 seconds after starting the race, but those little bastards went 500 miles attached to the front of a RENTAL trophy truck and KEPT WORKING.  No, they won't throw quite as far as  a comparable rigid but if you had a vehicle capable of needing that much throw you wouldn't be asking about budget lights.  If you really need what the high end lights have to offer you'll get them, but if not don't let others convince you the cheaper alternatives are shit just because they are cheap.  I work in off-road racing, I can buy Rigid/KC/anyone else's lights for cost, and my vehicle has Amazon specials on it because they are still that much less expensive and do everything I need.

For the money Auxbeam can't beat beat. Here's my "32 at night. No other lights.

Not exactly a "light bar", but the Run-D mini-spots put out a lot of light in a small footprint.

In spite of their name, they are pretty flood-ish - Really light up the sides of the road.

They also look nice.

Build quality is good - Very durable anodizing on the aluminum, and a tight, waterproof seal over the LEDs.

Costco has a sweet light bar by Vision X that would meet your needs...

+1 for auxbeam. I've had a 50" curved bar on my trailblazer for a year now.

I have a 20" Rough Country for the middle light on my truck for over a year now without an issue at all.

I have a 30" Totron that's been through a few PA winters and still going strong.
