Simple installation for anyone.
This Raxiom 50-inch Slim Straight LED Light Bar is for those of you that have a 1987 and up Wrangler and are looking to add a 50-inch LED light bar to your Jeep but aren't interested in one that's as chunky and clunky as those more traditional double-row LED light bars. This, of course, is a slimmer version of those light bars. This is going to be a single row of lights, so you are going to get a little bit less light output from this light bar. However, if we're being honest with ourselves, the light output that you get from a dual-row 50-inch is more than most of us need. This is even going to be more than what most of us need. And, in my opinion, this looks a lot better on most Jeeps than those double-row bars do. So if you prefer to look at this, if you're okay with the slightly lessened light output, I think, this is going to be a pretty nice option for you. So for the installation, I am gonna give this a two out of three wrenches because of the wiring that's involved. Actually getting the bar itself installed is a very simple process if you're going to purchase one of the brackets which again, most of you are going to do and I would highly recommend doing. Now Raxiom certainly isn't the only one making a slim LED light bar like this one. However, I do like the Raxiom brand because they build a quality product at a more affordable price. Now you can get a slim light bar like this that is two, three, four times as expensive as this one is and you might get a little bit more light output, a few more lumens, throw a little bit further down the trail in front of you, but you are certainly going to pay for that. And on the flip side, you can get a much less expensive 50-inch light bar. You can get a slim light bar like this, including a harness and a bracket for $100, but chances are you're gonna end up with condensation behind the lens, burn-out individual LEDs or a light that doesn't work at all in a short period of time. So I think that this is going to be a really nice balance of value and price. So as far as the construction goes, this is an extruded aluminum housing with a polycarbonate lens. This is going to have 50 LEDs that run across it that are going to give you your light output. This is going to come with a pair of feet that you can drill and install this wherever you choose to. However, the vast majority of you are going to wanna buy a bolt-on 50-inch LED light bar bracket, so that you can install this without the need to drill anything into your windshield frame. This light is also going to come with a two-wire pigtail which is pretty traditional these days for auxiliary LED lighting. You are going to have to either make a wiring harness, purchase a wiring harness or take your Jeep somewhere to have this wired up and installed for you if you're not comfortable with automotive wiring. So for the installation, I am going to give this a two out of three wrenches because of the wiring that's involved. Actually, getting the bar itself installed is a very simple process if you're going to purchase one of the brackets which again, most of you are going to do and I would highly recommend doing. That way you don't have to drill anything and it makes the install a breeze, so all you'll have to do is pull a couple of bolts out of your windshield hinges, off the brackets in place and drop the bar on to the brackets. Once that part's done if you are going to do your wiring, you'll have to get your switch, your fuse, your relays, all your wire together and get a switch to 12 volt source up to your pigtail on your light itself. If you're purchasing wire harness, you'll have to pull the wires on the right places and check all the proper connections. And, as I said before, if you're not comfortable with automotive wiring, that's okay too. Just take this to a shop and they'll wire it up for you. This light bar is gonna run you right around $350 and I do think again that that's a very fair price. With this bar, you are going to get a quality light bar. You're gonna get a ton of light output, probably more than most of us need. And, aesthetically, I think this looks a lot better on the Jeep. If I were to purchase a light bar, this is the amount of money that I would be comfortable spending and it's going to give me the look and the functionality that I'm after. So if you're looking for a slim 50-inch LED light bar, I would definitely recommend looking further into this one from Raxiom that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

The product arrived on the time, it looks well build. I have only turned it on momentary in few occasions as I haven't had an opportunity to go off roading at night yet. The down side for me was that I hadn't received the product yet when it had a lower price, so feels like I did over pay for the product, other than that I think it looks great.Helpful (0)

Took 30 minutes to install. Nice light bar for the price but the wire is a little noticeable to the eye and hard o hide.Helpful (9)

Great light, very bright! That whistle though...
Easy to install with the windshield mount (took me about 30 minutes including wiring through the firewall). However, once you get above 45mph look out - it seems they built a train whistle into these. I've read various forums and it seems either tilting the light bar up a bit or adding some insulation to the fins on the underside (not enough to fully block the fins, as they still need to vent) resolves the whistle. I sent a note to Raxiom to see if they offer a fix before I find a DIY solution that makes a $500 light bar look like a $50 toy.Helpful (13)

A bright idea
Perhaps include the wiring required. Not much to complain about here. It's bright and looks great. The adhesive on the switch doesn't stick to a muddy dash very well!Helpful (9)
