Tribal Whip LEDStixx

I just ordered a 44" TW LEDstixx light. I'm having it custom made with alternating spot/flood/spot/flood etc. They also have a new feature called "courtesy dimming" that I will get on mine as well. The feature allows you to come in to camp and drop your lights down to 10% power so you don't blind everyone.
I've only seen reviews of these on the rzr forums and a little about them on the rhino forums. I will be mounting mine on the downturn of the aluminum roof I'm installing. Has anyone here had any experience (good or bad) with them? I'm not trying to start a VisionX vs. Tribal vs. Ridgid thread, I'm just trying to see what the experience has been so far. On the east coast, we do much more trail riding at night than open area so it was imporant to get lots of flood lighting more so than spot. We also seem to hit a few more tree's so the $50 fix it charge for any out of warrenty claim is really a good selling feature around here.

I will definitely do a write up with pictures once it is done, especially since I haven't seen any on here yet.

I just mounted up my 44" last night, same setup as yours. I hooked it up to a battery to test it and its bright. Great for the money. I have not tested it outside yet.

efajeep, they run between $500 and $600 for a 44" bar plus $30/pair of clamps and you can add options. They are about the most reasonably priced bar on the market IMHO. I am not saying that the other bars aren't good (or even a bit better) but I wouldn't even think about spending that kind of coin on a light bar. I guess we will see how the light does once I get it here and mounted.

DM, can you take some pics of your bar? I would love to see your install. I can't wait to get mine and get it mounted. Any pictures you could take with the lights on outside at night would be welcomed as well.

Thanks, seems like a good price. I will have to check the website and see how they mount. When I had my dage made I had the bungs welded in for a light bar but didnt think how much load HID lights would put on the stock stater. I assume these light bars are and advantage if you are running the stock chrging system.
