Light Bar Lights Upgrade to LED? Brighter Options?

Well see attached photo of mine that came with the boat when I got it. At best these lights just provide a glow about 5 foot to the front and 5 Foot to the Back of boat 55w each. So I was looking for a economical way to upgrade the lights. I found these at WalMart
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pro-Burner...t-Kit/28848148

But I am willing to spend up to 50-75 bucks each. What I dont want is a Spot Light Beam across the Lake and a big KC looking light hanging down. So something Thin or Oblong shaped and throws a 30-40 yard V Beam would be great. Plus something on a swivel mount to face to the front or the back.

Before People get all Light Bar crazy... saying mine dont work or I dont use mine, well keep that off this thread. Plus I am not looking to Light up a Football Field while out.

Just the key points above, so while coming back from Dinner or out after Dark 30 I can be scene by others, plus I dont have to hold a Spot light the whole time.

Thoughts?

Light Bar Lights Upgrade to LED? Brighter Options?

Someone on here put a rigid led bar on theirs, that would be ideal really. But they are a lot more expensive than your talking. Personally if it was mine and I wanted more light I would do a led light bar. I have no experience with the lights on the link you posted, Ido think you'll be dissappointed though with that optioning your going for you being able to see.However check out www.plashlights.com and go to the "dr led bars" they are alot cheaper than rigids and I like the quality. I have a 20" one on my truck and it's awesome. I don't know how much room you have but if it were me I would do a 6" spot mounted forward and 2 6" flood facing rear.

Have you thought of buying those Rigid dually knock-offs on ebay? I think the product would be better.

Edit: CLR beat me to it. I've seen the $300 lightbar off ebay and it is awesome!

I have looked at the LED complete Light Bars... I really have endless room since I went WetSounds and they are out put to the out most points of the tower along the top bar. So ya I like your point of 1 Long for the Front, and 2 Facing Rear.

I have a 18" on my truck

Here's mine - MUCH brighter than 6 halogens - Can't hardly look straight at it. A lot cleaner look as well.

Don't do the LED bars, they're too bright.

Long one faces forward and short one faces rearward. Works just fine with my Wetsound speakers it's also a nice clean look IMO.

That front light bar might be a smidge overkill !!!
