Led light bars (do they last ) and best route for cables from roof.
Anyone else got one and can offer any feedback on if they work for more than a few weeks.
An alternative I am considering is LED daylight running lights mounted high.
I am not that concerned about if they illuminate the way ahead well, my interest is focused on if they last, my own experience of LED bulds is they are c#$p, working only for a few months before slowly failing.
A second question on how are people running the cable from such a light into the vehicle without compromising watertight ?

I run some super bright leds in my boat but have them restricted in output which will prolong their life (I hope)
ie, 12v downlighter for a boat, from china = £3 From a yacht chandlers =£45 .You get what you pay for !
Boats have water tight fittings to allow cables into the boat so have a look at whats available?

I used to have a 32" curved led bar on the roof-rack. It was on there for about 3 months and had already started to shed its powder coat with alu rot (aluminium rust?). The lens had also fogged so IP rating is not as stated.
Then a pikey helped themselves to it one night. Didnt get the brackets as i binned them and made my own However they are a theft target so its not been replaced.
The light output from it was pretty good for off-road and way too much to use on the road, so a compromise between ultimate output and actual quality is needed.
For running the wire, i binned off the aerial and ran it in there. its also fairly easy to run a wire up a snorkel. Have since replaced the aerial and binned the roof rack
Can't attach a pic for some reason
