Rigid Industries SR-Series Pro Light Bar on my BRZ

Just thought I'd share a video overview/demo of the light bar I just installed on my BRZ. My god what a glorious difference this thing makes on rural roads at night. Makes the stock BRZ high beams seem absolutely pitiful by comparison.

It's a Rigid Industries 20" SR-Series Pro Midnight Edition (meaning it has a lightly smoked lens for a slightly more subtle look). It's rated at over 15,000 lumens. Here is a link to the product page for those that are interested. The install was a bit of a pain in the butt, but I'm happy with the end result!

...and for those of you who don't want to watch the video, here is a quick .gif comparison of the "three lighting modes," which really shows the difference.

I wonder if it compares to the 2017+ led high beam.

3,000 lumens in a DOT-Compliant pattern is not going to compare in any way to 15,000 lumens in a spot pattern. even 3,000 lumens in a spot pattern will be brighter.
