JD Performance Adjustable Light Bar

By: Lacey Hartje
JD Lightbar

Dave Herron, owner of JD Performance in Temecula, California has created a light bar for UTVs that can be adjusted on the fly.

It has the conventional look of a dune buggy light bar from the front, but closer inspection reveals a handle which is used to aim the light where it’s needed. Dave’s TIG welded, mild steel light bar sports 30 degrees of motion, can be had with 2, 3, 4, or 5 light tabs and can be ordered powder coated or with no finish giving you complete artistic control. The pivoting mechanism even detaches via a quick release pin and folds down below the roll bar for loading so this light bar doesn’t add height to your UTV while in storage. Installation was quick and easy on our 2007 Rhino as it replaces the front roll cage cross bar.

Our test sample sports 4 Hella Series 500 55 watt lights; a pair of spots and a pair of floods. When we were first introduced to this adjustable light bar we thought of using it to look up and down dunes and other terrain when conventional lights would be shinning off into space. After using the bar we find that being able to aim the lighting for the speed you are driving to be a compelling reason to add one to your rig. If you are crawling over rough terrain, aim the lighting in close. When you are running at top speed, aim the lighting out in front of you. You can do this instantly from the driver’s seat on the fly. A co-pilot could even aim the lighting for you while under way. When you need light you need it where you are looking and now that power is within reach. To get your hands on one contact JD Performance.
