Like if this Guide is helpful

Whether you are a 4WD and off road driving enthusiast, a truck driver, or someone who operate emergency vehicles, mining equipment, or agricultural equipment for a living, having a good LED light bar is a must. A reliable auxiliary lighting device can go a long way towards ensuring your safety when driving at night or during bad weather conditions.
When it comes to choosing the best light bar for your vehicle, there are many factors you should consider. One of them is the size of the lighting device. As you may know, LED light bars today come in a wide range of sizes. Some can be as short as 6 inches, while others can go longer than 40 inches. 

What Size Should I Buy?

Depending on your specific needs and requirements, it is essential that you choose one with the correct size to ensure reliability. But how do you determine which is the best one for you?

1. Measuring the amount of available space.

Before you consider a light bar's features and specifications, it is important that you determine the amount of space available in the spot you want to install the light bar in. In our experience, it is always better to choose a lighting device that fits in the space you have, rather than having a light bar with good features but could be a poor fit. So before you shop, you should start taking measurements to ensure that the device you'll choose will offer you an excellent fit.
