I've been doing some upgrades to my Jeep, including a 50 inch LED lightbar.

I'm very happy with it.

Nice! How much power does that require?

Very nice. Do you get much glare off the hood?

I did at first, but after adjusting the aim, it's really not an issue.

It's 300 watts and the colour temp is 6500k. It's great, I'd like to add a few smaller ones and maybe two on the rear also.

300watts really isn't any more draw than a couple of the old KC Daylighters... and that bar appears to put off more light.

OH wow. That's intense.

I've been considering something like this. Any problems/regrets you ran into? What manufacturer did you go with?

It is. I love it.

No problems or regrets, yet. It made a terrible whistling noise at first, but that and glare were fixed after I aimed it.

I went with this one. It's not one of the big brands, but a friend of mine has used their products and is happy with them, so I decided to try it out.
