Default Custom LED Modular Light Pods

So long story short - No one wants to pay $500+ on an LED light bar. Granted, China bars are a great product! Not trying to talk down on them, but resellers are selling all the same lights- just different names, marked WAY too high on the price tag. I'd rather do my own thing.

A buddy and I got together and came up with a simple, effective alternative. A modular pod system.

These pods are inter-connectable and you can add or remove pods as you see fit. It's a simple plug and play system.

Each pod is equipped with 12, 3W LEDs attached to an aluminum heatsink, with 30 degree spot lenses. The enclosures being used are made of a non-corrosive PVC with a vandal proof lexan lense. Each pod is also coated with a black textured bed liner.


1 Pod = $60 or $55 local pickup (Bend, OR).

For instance, a 52" bar has 6 pods, and would cost $360 shipped. Compare that to a 50" China Bar.

The pods can take a beating which makes them the ultimate off road light. Try smacking your China bar off a tree or a rock. Say goodbye to 500 bucks.

Mounting options are not included. However, the most simple method is clamping them in place to your vehicle/roll bar/bumper/brush guard. You could also use some simple brackets to screw them into place... Or buy pre-made LED bar brackets like I did for my Jeep.


Wiring is also simple. Depending on your requested setup, we will provide a power cord that will run your entire pod system.

The next step? Pick up a universal light bar harness off of eBay. I got one for 15$, free shipping. Comes with relay, fuse, everything you need to properly install your lights so you don't melt down important things.



We are a 2-man team, both with full time jobs. It does take us around an hour and a half of work per pod, so most the work gets done on weekends.

Contact us via PM for ordering.

We charge before shipping the pods via PayPal invoice.
