TOP LED LIGHT BARS
Whether you’re in need of extra lighting for those hot summer nights or to extend your ride day during the winter, a light bar is the easiest way to do that. LEDs have taken over the light bar market, and they provide ample light and draw much less power than older halogen or HID lights. LEDs are sleek, take up very little room and have been proven durable. We have put together the top light bar options for every need and price range. If you plan to order one of the top led light bars in this guide, be sure to tell the company you read about its products in UTV Action magazine. You can also visit www.denniskirk.com or www.summitracing.com for a wide selection of UTV light bars.

SUPERATV CAMO LIGHT BAR
SuperATV has 6-inch ($135), 12-inch ($205) and 30-inch ($250) double-row LED light bars to choose from. For this guide, we wanted to highlight the dual-row, camo light bar. It’s the ultra-bright light bar that you only know is there when it’s on. It’s covered with a woodland camo pattern so it disappears when not in use. It uses a combo of spot and flood LEDs, is IP68 waterproof rated, and comes with roof or cage mounts. At 30 inches, the complete light has 180 watts of consumption and puts out 14,400 lumens.

They all come with an IP67 waterproof rating and spot-focused inner LEDs while the outer ones are floods. Harbor Freight claims its 52-inch bar can cast light over 2000 feet in front of you.
