Our LED bars vs. the “typical eBay” bars

We often are asked why people would buy our bars vs. the typical ones on eBay for less money. Here are some very specific reasons you want to buy from us and use our product:

The Typical import light. Key differences are:

1) Standard 1year warranty. We do lifetime

2) pulls 16amps at only 12 volts. This means that they use over-powered drivers that pull to many amps to create the 9600 lumens they claim. This will most definitely cause premature failure of the leds. Which is why they can only give one year if any warranty. We have 9800 lumens at 7 amps. This is vital for longevity and reliability. We highly recommend not buying a light that draws so many amps.

3) They are using “toughened glass”. It tends to allow moisture inside and will not take an impact and will break. We use Polycarbonate plastic for our lens. Its unbreakable!

4) They only have ip67 rated lights and therefore will take on moisture ( from the glass) we are ip68 which is impenetrable to the elements.

5) They can only run on 10-30volts. This means that quads, bikes and other 9 volt systems can’t use them, neither can heavy equipment such as bulldozers and tractor trailers that run on 36 watts. Our lights run on any 9-36v systems!

Conclusion
I don’t do a lot of offroading, but I bought this light bar to make up for the fact that I don’t have fog lights. It’s worth every penny due to the completeness of the kit. I did my research prior to ordering and found out that a 20″ bar would mount directly in my bumper without having to modify it or even take it off the truck. It’s a great product, and I really have nothing bad to say about it. It works flawlessly. I have had several crowds of people coming out to my truck at work to check out how bright it is. A friend of mine is going to order a 50″ curved bar and another guy I work with is planning to order a bar for his truck just from seeing what my 20″ bar will do.

Team Stance final decision:

This product gets the Green Light!!

Custom Paint and Halo Headlights Review – Reviewer: Team Stance Sponsored Crew – A.J. Logan

Product is the painted inner housings with custom installed Prestige color changing halos. Gold Standard Lighting did all the work using Prestige products for lighting.

up close halo high quality close green light up

Pros
-Paint scheme was what I asked for
-Clean paint job (no runs or splotches)
-Halos are really bright but have the option to be turned down
-Halos also have many color options and settings
-Silicone job was done very cleanly and haven’t had any fogging issues yet
-A second sealant (Flex Seal) was used over the silicone to guarantee that it didn’t leak
-Albert is a great guy to deal with and willing to work with the customer

Cons
-First thing that I noticed was drill/dremel marks to cut out a hole for the halos. It was only noticeable on the driver’s side turn signal halo because he covered it with silicone on the passenger side to make it less noticeable.
-The halo kit is pretty cheap. The wiring doesn’t come complete. You have to wire up the power and ground where as most kits would have a complete harness.
-All the wires in the harness are white. Anyone that is installing this kit on their truck is going to want to hide these wires. Why wouldn’t they be black?
-The prongs on the wiring harness are flimsy and seem like they could easily break or pull out.
-The biggest downfall of the kit is the remote. The remote is the only way to turn the halos on and pick a color/pattern. It uses an infrared system similar to a TV remote. I hid the sensor in my grille. There isn’t a lot of options where it can go due to the wire only being about 6″ long. Another reason that infrared sucks is because it can’t have any light on the sensor to pick up the signal. In the daytime, I have to be within probably 3-4 feet of my sensor in the front of my truck. At night, the range probably increases to 6-8 feet away.

Conclusion
After only having them on my truck for about a week, I think that they were worth the money. I’m not impressed with the quality of the halo kit, but the reactions of others to my truck and the appearance that they give the truck make up for it. I really have nothing bad to say about Albert at Goldstandardlighting for this build. He really worked with me and sent me updates/pictures during the entire process. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to stand out.

Q: Can I wire multiple LED lights together with single harness?

A: Yes, lights need to be wired in parallel. Which means positives together and negatives together. Each harness is able to handle 300 Watts, simply add the wattage of each bar and do not exceed this limit.

Those Fender Bolts though!! – throw back post

WE DON’T RECOMMEND DOING THIS! WE DON’T RECOMMEND DOING THIS! WE DON’T RECOMMEND DOING THIS!

IT IS A PERMANENT MODIFICATION TO YOUR VERY EXPENSIVE TRUCK AND RESALE COULD GO TO $0.00!!

We get a lot of questions about those big ole’ bolts in our fenders so we figured it’s time to give a little detail. We decided that since there are no pocket style fender flares for the Cladded Avalanches, we needed to give that look – but way more extreme! We also struggled finding a studded grill, we liked, so we got carried away with the largest stainless Allen heads available at the local hardware store!

The Fenders
The bolts we chose were Grade 2 (in case we had to hand cut them shorter- which we did) 2″ long 1 1/2″ hex heads. They had to be special ordered from Fastenal, about $100 for 40 of them. Because of code requirements they all had stampings in the top so we started by grinding the tops flush one-at-a-time.

We spent about 2 hours laying it out over and over because we knew these holes were forever. We also knew that our truck’s bed is part of the cab, so drilling giant holes in it meant we only have one shot to do it right, and there was no going back. After we laid out the whole truck with marker, we stared at it for an hour 🙂 Then we used a straight blade and ‘x’ marked the first hole, center punched it… then we started drilling. Using a speed bit with a lot of electrical tape to mark our depth we started into the first hole. Slowly worked our way around the truck – drilling a hole, threading in a bolt (often having to cut bolt length in half due to firewalls and plastic trim issues) and so on until there were 36 x 1 1/2″ bolts sticking out of our truck! This was very stressful work for a driveway mechanic!

You can see from the picture, at first we had the threaded-half of a couple of the cut bolts in the front 2 corners but everyone thought we lost our nuts, so we put a bolt in there instead.

Here it is from another angle.

Now we had to decide to clear all the bolts, to avoid rust, or paint them. We decided to color match them to the inner spokes of our wheels. So we primed them all, painted them with automotive grade spray paint, and then used a silicone when doing final install to keep water out of our inner fenders.

Then after paint we put them back in with the silicone.

You can also see the Allen head stainless steel bolts in the grill. Those are a similar process. We laid out the design, drilled holes with the proper size bit, after double checking it wouldn’t hit important stuff, then ‘threaded’ in the bolts. (NOTE: when we want to remove our grill, every single bolt must come out.) These are stainless steel so no paint required.

And that is how we installed giant bolts in our Avalanche. Like we said, not recommended as this is what you will have if you take them out.

But when it’s all said and done, ours looks like this!

50″ OffRoad LED Bars light bar added to our windshield

Next up was the infamous 50″ Off Road LED Light Bar! Again we worked with OffRoad LED Bars (Olb) and picked out this 50″ Light Bar. The light bar comes with killer Olb brackets that mount in the rain guards inside the tops of the door frames. Unfortunately the Custom Offsets truck lives in a 7′ high garage… and with a 6″ lift on 33s – there was no way we could fit this light on those brackets and fit in that garage!! Remember this pic from when we first got the lift?

So once again it was time to get innovative and start thinking. Luckily we ran into Slammed Out Kustoms at a local show and remembered they did a lot of custom fab work. Using their new laser and lots of trial and error, the new Low Profile LED Light Bar bracket was born. Because it is roof mount (just like the old moon visors of the 90s) there was no added height. They were able to keep the entire low profile bracket and 50″ light bar about flush (give or take 1″) with the highest ridge on the roof! With a little Rhino Liner she was set for war!

low profile bracket

As you can see the mounting holes in the roof are actually smaller than the wiring hole and the screws go directly into the structural roof support on the 99-06 Chevy/GMC body style, ensuring it’s not going any where. Although we have not started mass producing these brackets we can have a custom set made for this body style, they are sold here Low Profile LED light bar mount for 50″ light bar.

We wired up the 50″ LED light bar to the same switch as the 20″ and ran the wire up the A-pillar and under the headliner so there are no visible wires.

Next things we knew we were lighting up the whole neighborhood with our Off Road LED light bars and HIDs!!

20″ Offroad Led Bars and some HIDs Shedding some Light on our Truck!

Now that she is all Plasti-dipped, lifted, and the wheels are sticking WAY out it’s time to light this beast up! We worked with Offroad Led Bars (Olb) on some LEDS and put together an HID light kit like these (Complete HID kits – hi beams, low beams, and fogs). We are extremely happy with the color and quality of our kit running the 8K (Iceberg Blue). Since our website has the blue accents we changed all interiors to blue LEDs and we wanted the HIDs to flow with that theme. You can’t believe how easy there are to install and how BRIGHT they are! Be prepared to aim them all down a bit, if you are lifted, or people will be very upset 🙂

Next up was a 20″ LED light bar by OffRoad Led Bars! These make the HIDs seem dim, absolutely amazing quality and BRIGHTNESS. Ours is the 20″ bar (Sold here) that comes with brackets and we also used the low priced wire harness (Sold Here). Once we removed the headlights, took off our added hardware, and 1 or 2 bolts the grill “popped” right off. (remember we added a pile of studs so yours won’t have all those extra holes and hardware to remove)

grill off

If you look closely in the picture above you will also see the brackets we “fabbed” up. It’s simply the cheap metal band from Fleet Farm with pre-drilled holes and we added a little primer and black paint. This stuff actually fits perfectly with the hardware that comes with the 20″ OffRoad LED Light bar and cut to the right length it bolted right to the radiator brace and rested on the inside of the front bumper. This made a nice rigid platform and got the light away from the radiator fins! Close up —->

And since we had her all apart, you can see we quick shot some flat black paint on those white radiator supports and re-dipped our grill (out of the picture).

A couple bolts and some quick wiring to the battery and through the firewall grommet (for our LED light bar switch on the dash) and we had the 20″ Off Road LED light bar all set up on our Avalanche!!

Now with the flip of a switch we had the HIDs and the 20″ LED light bar cutting through the night. The following weekend at 2 am our truck was used to light up a side-hill water slide that was 150 yards away!! She’s bright!!
