Hi, i'm looking to buy a roof led bar for my sierra 2016 all terrain. I want a curved one, with great lighting. My problem is that theres a lot of different price. A shop here in my town sell one for 1249$ with bracket +taxes... and i find some on ebay at 89$...
Can someone tell me what i should look for? Lumens? Watts?
I was hoping to pay less then 600$.
Thanks!

Depends how often your going to use it. If just for looks and the occasional use, then a cheaper one is fine. If you plan on using it a lot off road or whatever the I may spend a little more.

I would not put one on the roof though. Too much wind noise for me.

I had a 50in curved bar on my 06, loved the look but hated the noise.

I have a RC 30in bar behind the grille on my 16, super clean look and holds its own on lighting up the night.

You're going to hate the noise from a roof bar. These guys got it right - something in the grill or bumper will throw a ton of light without the noise issue.

If you go with a cheaper light bar, at a minimum you should seal it with silicon to ensure moister does not get in.

If you want a bumper or grill bar, and you really want a bright one, find one that has 5w or 10w led chips.
I think these two companies sell them:
And they are high quality

I've got an eyourlife 20" light bar on my bumper. Here's a comparison with it off and on. 12,600 lumen, waterproof, bought off amazon for $70.

I agree, the wind noise is kinda a PITA but it does its job of lighting up backroads and trails like a boss! I have a Auxbeam 50" curved and I think its 288Watts and 28800 lumens($99 on Amazon but I got it off a friend for $60). I'll take a picture tonight if that helps. Goodluck
