    TWO....THOUSAND........TWO HUNDRED..........and sixty one feet. That's how far away the side of a building was that my new 20" Onx6 Hi-Power illuminated. I went to my "regular test street" to get a feel for how this new light compared to my original Onx6, and it hit the wall at the end of the street with MUCH more light. SO.......I went to the most straight street I could find nearby to see just how far it could shine. The street was not ideal. Lots of new street lights, and some trees on the side of the road. I hit the switch, and my wife said "Whats that "thing" its lighting up at the end of the street?". Well.....That "thing" was an apartment complex building that was 192 feet past the end of the street. Hmm.....well, Chris....HOW do you know these measurements?" Because I was so surprised, I went and got my Keson measuring wheel, and went for a walk about to see for myself. 2261 feet from the front of my jeep, to the wall of the building. @Baja Designs , what kind of sorcery is this??

    Wow....that's incredible for a 20" light bar. I wouldn't expect that with a 50" bar.

    Wait..wait..wait. Your saying you walked the 2200 feet. I find that highly unbelievable. You walked more that 2200 feet??? Yeah right..My guess is you held it out your door, and drove the 2200 feet. Lol. :crazy:

    Actually, if you look at the options out, their price is right inline. A 20 inch KC FLEX light will cost more, and has less than half the output. Same with Rigid, and Vision x, as compared to the BD light
