Keep reading to learn more about the best LED tailgate light bar we have to offer, the benefits of installing the aftermarket lighting component on your truck and SUV, and the superior function and performance you’ll find in this part.

Benefits of LED Tailgate Light Bars

Trucks and SUVs don’t come with OEM factory-installed LED light bars right off the lot, but there are many benefits to adding one to your ride as an aftermarket accessory. Not only are they affordable, but they provide an added element of safety, and they make your truck look awesome. They’re fairly easy to install, and when you buy from RECON, you’ll receive a complete wiring kit and all necessary hardware to complete the process.

It’s easy to see why LED tailgate bars catch the attention of drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists alike. They’re bright, they’re sleek, and they’re powerful. However, what you may not realize right away is that these qualities also contribute to safety.

There are times when you’ll need to pull over on the side of the road or come to a stop when you’re mudding or off-roading through the sand dunes. Maybe you have an issue with your tire pressure, or maybe a check engine light comes on that you need to evaluate before you keep driving.

When this happens, it’s absolutely essential that drivers approaching from behind have ample warning that you’re there and that you may be in distress. The best tailgate light bar is a key part of making sure this happens. It can signal to other passenger vehicles that they may need to move over a lane, let other off-roaders know to go around your vehicle, or alert emergency vehicles like tow trucks of your location.

Why Choose an LED Tailgate Bar

If you’re looking for the best tailgate light bar for your truck or SUV, there’s no doubt about it. You need a light bar that uses the new, most cutting-edge, high-powered LED lights available, not a light bar that uses the old halogen lights of the past. LED lights have countless advantages over older, more traditional bulbs, and it’s something to get excited about.

First, LED lights last much, much longer. In fact, their lifespan is tens of thousands of hours, which is more than 25x as long as halogen bulbs. This means less frequent replacements, fewer trips to the auto store to buy bulbs or online ordering, and over time significant cost savings. Next, LEDs don’t “burn out” the way halogen lights do. That means you’ll never turn on your truck to find a light suddenly dark. Rather, they slowly dim over time which gives you good warning that it’s time to get a replacement. But–many truck drivers find that LEDs last the entire lifespan of their vehicles.

LED lights also put less strain on your truck’s battery and are impact resistant, an absolute must for anyone who goes off-roading or drives through treacherous terrain. Additionally, and this is perhaps the most important benefit, they’re extremely bright and well-focused.

Halogen bulbs often give off a yellow hue that can appear hazy, dull, dim, and scattered. With today’s new and improved technology, LED bulbs produce a light that’s much whiter, brighter, and more clear. The result is to increase your truck’s visibility on the road and improve the range of view. The question isn’t why should you get an LED tailgate bar, but why wouldn’t you want to score one for your ride?

What Is the Best LED Tailgate Bar?

No matter what the circumstance, having the best LED tailgate bar on the back of your truck or SUV is a must. The fact that it adds a “wow” element to your truck is an added bonus, so you want to make sure it’s as stylish and cool as possible. When you combine practical functionality with the coolest look on the market, you have an unbeatable combination. What is the best LED tailgate bar for this purpose?
