I don't know how good of a light bar it is. At only $100 and 52'' long, its hard to say. But it doesn't come with any switches, wires or relays.
I would likely go with a curved, 100 watt bar and whatever it is, it has to be less than 48''.

Yeah I was looking at that after I posted this picture I noticed other light sources appeared brighter.
If a light bar manufacturer claims 30,000 lumens, even if its really only 20,000 lumen that still like adding 20 halogen head lights to the front of your car.

I use two 20 watt LED flood lights and it lights up my most of my 1/3 acre front yard. This is 7.5 times that wattage of my flood lights.
