Have you brought this eSeries or something else?

I checked with authorised dealer in Bangalore, he is quoting around 37K.

In Amazon US it cost around 20k.
Ebay.com ships to India but charges for shipment which comes for around 28K
No, I was just asking as I wanted to get a feel of the competition price. I do not deal in the rigid brand.

I wouldn't suggest purchasing from India. The prices are exhorbitant.

I have something which TSK gave, lot less than rigid but enough to pack a punch for 50mts. I have rigids too. Spots are pretty much useless for driving. Its for hunting, spotting and first responder situation.

Default Re: Off-Roading Lights

A friend of mine had his LED light bar stolen from his Thar a few days ago. Nothing is unstealable, but made me think I should have at least some sort of a deterrent.

Read a few articles online and people have suggested using
- Installing anti-theft nuts
- M-seal/epoxy to seal off the bolts
- Building a custom mount which makes the bar hard to steal

It's a pain trying to source anti-theft nuts. I've been looking online and offline but no good (which is a good thing, I guess, otherwise the thieves themselves would carry tools to undo these bolts without issues). Anyone know where I can find these?

M-seal is my last resort. It makes making any adjustment to the angle impossible and isn't that strong a deterrent. Not too keen on a custom mount either.

More ideas would be welcome.

There is an ad in our classifieds section for Anti-theft or Barri nuts. The guy is from Bangalore and I've had them on my Light Force style lights.

I have a Rigid Industries E20 combo on my Vcross. Later on i ordered anti-theft nuts (from Rigid Industries as well) as well to make it painful for the thieves. Had ordered it on Amazon US for approximately $30, installed them and then put superglue on the visible thread. Has held on till now, considering that the bar hasn't been stolen

What's the difference between E & SR series for Rigid LED series?

E-series seems to be expensive so it may be better but I couldn't find much info around it. Surprisingly, Rigid website doesn't say much about the difference either.

I was planning on getting a 10" E2 hyperspot/driving combo and realized that there's a "driving only" LED also available.

I plan on mounting it in the bumper/grill area of my Fortuner but a little confused about which specific model would work best for night driving.
