If you are looking to do things less expensively, and use some tools, this guy made some that seem to work REALLY well. (not to mention he has one of the sweetest Taco's out there right now).

Otherwise, Rigid seems to be the way to go.
Dude, that's some mad fab skills! Wow.

My LED light bar is from expedition lighting systems. He is on MUD. Basically rigid copies.
As I have been poking around... This seems to be the reality for now. 100 yards is the general consensus from what I've read so far.

I want to try the blue covers some time to see how well they work in the snow. I have read that blue light cuts through driving snow.

Thanks Mike, if I catch you sometime I'd like to check out your lights in action.
