Well...for $27 this may be worth rolling the dice.

It has around 3000 reviews on Amazon with 4.5 stars. I'd say it's worth a shot.

Default Halogen vs LED lighting

Not sure on brand. No test on lumens or side by side comparisons on rigid output either. Iíve got 2 smaller versions and one larger version on my hwy tractors as well. 5 years running no issues. Just made sure I bought ip67 rated and Cree led bulbs. Tried to buy with a diffuser that looked like it would do what I want. The larger ones are combos and on the rzr it sure lights a field up at night.

If you get what you pay for the rigid would have to last 20 times as long and be 20 times as bright. These lights are more than capable for a machine that can do 70 mph should be fine for a golf cart.

I am quite sceptical of the "lumens claims" of all led stuff, but I switched to a Led light bar to replace my two 55w halogen headlights years ago (better than the ezgo 37.5w bulbs). I would never go back. Always bright, engine running, or not. Do it! You will wonder why it took you so long. When you see street signs, they are blazing with their reflected light. You will love what you been missing. More light, and less power used.

LEDs are really great, but also know they are very glaring to people looking at you. For the OP, it won't matter. He's heading out of the woods. For the other people I see driving their carts to/from the local park with light bars, it's a pain in the butt.

Yes. It's always "wise" to consider your specific application when considering the option's available. A person can spend a lot of money on "stuff" that they really don't need. OTOH....."need" is much different than "want." When your in the "want" factor......price can go out the door!!

I just placed the order for the light bar. I also got the waterproof switch, fused, wiring "harness" as well. Another $11.....but someone has to make a buck!!
