    Default Rigid "E" Series LED Lights

    So I've been madly working on the boat to get it ready for this years Moose hunt, AKA MooseAPalooza.
    Built an Al rack/light bar for it, and picked up one of the Rigid E series 6" LED combo pattern lights.
    Man, that thing is amazing! Hooked it up and checked it out last night. Very impressive.
    Compared to the old Halogens I had, the difference is night and day....

    i can just imagine. That 6" is the shiz.
    no more trepidation of shooting a Moose near dark away from camp. 2 years ago we got one 2 kicks upstream from camp and finished near midnight. Turned on the halogen to cruise back to camp and it promptly died. Forced to sit around a for and drink single malt till light. Oh darn.......

    I bet that light really does it up right! How about a pic of your install?

    What did you end up paying for the lights, I have been interested in getting the 20 inch E series also.

    Hi Pete
    I got the light here in town at Pacesetter @ the old Yukon Explosives building, $340 and change. They had them in stock.Not cheap, but considering they should be the last light a guy needs.
    How did your engine swap work out for you?

    Engine swap was like night and day sooooo much more thrust and hp, instead of running the kodiak 350 @ 4600 rpms, I can run the 383 stroker @ 4000 and still have a 1000 rpms to use. Fuel mileage increased due to running at lower rpms, which is a bonus. Haven't gps the top speed yet but it is faster.
    I think I am going to get the 20" rigid lite bar, for the boat and swap to truck in the winter.

    What pump are you running?
    With a 212, my 5.7 Kodiak can cruise all day at 3000. Haven't had a really monstrous load in it yet, but 4 adults and lots of gear/fuel didn't seem to make any difference.
    Anyway, off topic. You will love that 20".

    What's the brand name you are selling?
    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

    Running a kodiak 3 stage pump so that I can haul heavier loads, most I've had was 3000 lbs, and got on step with no problem. How is the 212 for pushing loads?

    Mike,
    I installed Steve's light on the back deck of my ocean boat, its excellent light for that purpose. I would not put it on my airboat though. I would like something with a longer reach to light up 100 yards or so in front of the boat.
    I think they would be great on a wheeler though....

    Paul we use these on our trucks they are the only light we have found that hold up to the pounding they take on the haul road. I have several friends that have the led light bars and some have the round led lights. My friend is going to try the new cannon model lights, they sound nice with the availability to change colors and beam width with just the changing of the light covers. I think just one of the medium sized light bars would work great on the boat, not sure of the 10 or 40 deg beam though.

    The VP of Vision X just purchased an new Wooldridge 20ft Sport offshore pilot so look for some of their products on the boat. They do have a marine version of some of the lights.
