Hello Everyone, What kind of interest is there in the Rigid Industries branding of lights? Some guys love em, Some think they are over priced. What Rigid part numbers are on your wish list? We have have done a lot of installs for the other makes of truck guys and they are a top quality light for sure, the pricing does reflect that but we have ways to help with that. Are the Titan fog light Rigid replacements a go to for you guys, they have been a great upgrade over the years. Any input would be greatly appreciated

My personal opinion is they are overpriced. I certainly think they are high quality, but I think there are others of just as good quality for a little less coin. I drive to work between 2 and 3am every day. I have a 20" ebay bar on my bull bar that I use every morning on the back roads (I don't necessarily think it's legal in PA), but it really throws light. It's about 9 months old and no condensation or bad LEDs. I paid $30 for it and could probably buy 10+ more for the price of a rigid that size. Maybe if I was into hardcore offroading at night or something, but for the price there are so many other mods I could get more every day use out of. Sorry to ramble, but that is my purely unprofessional opinion, as I am generally a get what you pay for kind of guy. I worked in an electronics factory for 4 years building circuit boards and I put the same parts in missile controls as I did airplane phones and car parts. All the parts came from China.

I have Rigid Industries lights on my UTV and love them, but on my truck, I've had Lightforce HID's on the front for years and love their adjustability. Just hate the
warm up time for them to get warmed up. The Rigid light come on instantly and throw some major light. Have never compared my 30" combo light bar and 4" Dually's w Driving pattern to cheaper brands, but I would love to be a beta tester!!

I have genuinely tried to convince myself to go for Rigid lighting, I really have...but I simply can't justify it. Only if I had endless amounts of money to throw at a build. And even then I'd probably feel guilty. I just can't see the logic in putting 5 times as much money in to some light bars that will be used only situationally. Not only that, but the light bars that I do have also have a lifetime, no questions asked warranty, and put ridiculous amounts of lumens downrange themselves. Rigid is hands down the highest quality. They use high quality chips and have superior reflectors and housings. I don't think that fact can be argued. But there are quite a few brands out there that do just about the same thing, for 1/5th of the cost, while still standing behind their products and offering good customer service. For me and my wallet, it's a no brainer.

Keep all the input coming. I understand the cost on the Rigids, it is crazy, we can help with that as well. What are some competition brands that you all interested in?

Top notch for sure but not for me as a casual offroader. I would rather take a chance on amazon or ebay lights for my personal use but for a dedicated trail rig of any sort or worktruck where its vital for the extra light then 100% in.

I have several sets of rigid and love them. Some of my co workers have some similar style but not rigid and they have issues with them after a month or two.
I had this set up on my 08 and am waiting for a grill guards to become available on the 17s to reinstall on my new truck.

30in combo on front,
1 srm back up kit (2 light heads), comes on when in reverse or on demand.
And just got 2 ignite diffused, these will be mounted on my running boards and wired with my proximity lights and cargo lights.

Always had good luck, and was willing to pay a little more for them.

My personal take on a set of Rigid Industries SAE LED fog lights I recently installed on my armada:

The GOOD: The output of these SAE LED fogs are exactly as advertised. Perfect for on-road driving, which is 99% of where I drive since I'm in NYC. The cutoff is on point and has a wide, flat beam without blinding oncoming traffic. Compared to the retrofitted Morimoto XB fogs I installed last summer, these Rigid lights definitely have a stronger light output. The color hue is a near perfect match to the Philips Ultinon D2S 6K bulbs I use in my retrofitted headlights.

The BAD: As we all know, the price for Rigid Industries' products are some of the most expensive when there are similar, aftermarket options available at a much lower cost. I still have a set of LED pods I purchased from eBay almost two years ago that are still fully functional which cost less than $50 shipped.

The UGLY: This could be an isolated incident, but Rigid Industries has yet to respond to my email/complaint. I ordered the SAE LED fog lights from an authorized dealer, which was shipped directly from Rigid Industries. When I opened the box to inspect the lights, I found these were previously purchased/used/returned to Rigid and sold/shipped to me as a new set. The body of the lights had chipped paint around the outside mounting points, the brackets were loose in the box, and the hardware in a taped up plastic bag. Although the wiring harness wasn't used, it was already removed and left in the same, ripped open bag. Completely opposite of the Titan mount kit and yellow lenses which were sealed and shipped directly from Rigid as well. Considering the price of the fog lights, I was not expecting this and disappointed that I haven't heard back from Rigid.

Bought an 8" OPT7 combo light bar for $45 a year ago. It's on my ATV that sits outside uncovered year-round. No condensation, no issues with LED's failing, still turns on instantly. A 6" Rigid combo light bar is $300.

For my truck I have some other Amazon brands that, once again, are WAY below price point of Rigids. 32" curved bar that was $110, Rigid 30" curved bar is $1250. Amazon bar claims 18k lumens, Rigid bar claims 16k. If I get an actual 10-12k out of either bar I'll be impressed and for 11 times the cost I just can't justify it. Both warranties are comparable.

I have the rigid d2s on my titan with their mount kit. Hands down the nicest lights you can get. Unbreakable and bright. I work at a truck accessory shop and ive seen every light out there and trust me when i say rigid is the only way to go. With cheap lights you can't get light covers and actually light bars are illegal.

I am running rigid duallys behind the grill, definitely the best fog lights I've ever owned. I got them on sale for 4wheelparts so the price wasn't to bad however, I could never bring myself to spend that kind of money on any rigid light bar. There are other leds on the market of the same caliber and more cost effective.

IMO very overpriced. and not worth it.
brands like domination lighting and gglighting sell pretty high quality stuff thats warrantied at 1/4 the price. and the light output is pretty well on par as well.
i just dont get how people can get bent over and robbed for these lights
