Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    LED Lightbar $30 Shipped & Core Trade-In

    $30 Shipped to U.S.

    What this is…

    These are LED lightbars for 13-button OBCs. Using salvaged lightbars from junkyard that I have collected of the years, I replace the old burnt out bulbs with new LEDs. They are a little brighter and won’t burn out.

    The LEDs that I use are white. A few people have mentioned using amber/orange for better results. There is an orange gel film in between the lightbox and the screen to ensure light travelling through is orange. White light is going to most replicate the old lightbar, where the amber/orange will look more like the dash. I personally prefer the white.

    Core buy back….

    In order to keep a supply, I need cores. So I will offer a buy back that will allow multiple core trades for a new LED lightbar. A lot of you showed interest at the $20 price level, which this buy back will help accomplish. Not only does this help me, but also helps you get the cost down close to nothing. Here is how it will work:

    If you have one core (the one in your car):
    (1st) core - $10 credit

    If you have lots (collected from the junkyard):
    (1st) core - $10 credit
    For each additional core - $5 credit each
    Max of $25 value in trades (4 cores)

    Example:
    You Have You Pay
    No Core: $30
    (1) Core: $20 + (1) Core
    (2) Cores: $15 + (2) Cores
    (3) Cores: $10 + (3) Cores
    (4) Cores: $5 + (4) Cores

    **If you have 10+ cores PM me for more info.

    How will the buy back work with me getting my LED lightbar?

    Your order will ship when I receive (2) things:

    1. Your payment
    2. Your core(s) in the mail

    Once those are received I will process your order either that same day or the next.

    Other Options…

    If enough people want amber/orange, I can put something together. Those lightbars might not be ready to order as I may wait to make them until someone orders them.

    Depending on request I may post up comparison shots of white vs. amber/orange day & night. Let you all decide what you want.

    How do I order?

    PM me. Depending on how many cores you have or don’t have, I will PM you my PayPal info and address to send the core(s). You send me your address and any other information I need. It’s that simple.

    How do I remove my old lightbar and install the new?

    Assuming you already have the 13-Button OBC, Alex (iwantspeed) did a fantastic write-up on all the steps involved with swapping the lightbar. Enjoy.

            I don't think that these LEDs get that hot. They get warm, barely.
            But no where close to melting the optics.

              Their increase in heat wouldn't even be perceivable. They're dissipating like 20mw at pretty high efficiency levels. The original incandescent bulbs wasted more energy to heat by a longshot and never melted anything.

                  "LEDs are very similar to traditional light bulbs, except that they fit directly into an electrical circuit. LEDs do not have a filament, so they generally last a long time without burning out. Because there is no filament, LEDs do not get hot and require far less electric power than traditional light bulbs due to their efficiency. In fact, electrons that run through the semiconductor material that LEDs are connected to illuminate LEDs." - WIKI answers

                  Correct.

                  Correct.

                  Thanks Alex. I think you will be happy with the results. Let me know if you have any issues.

                    Is there an option of paying $30 upfront, and you refund $10 when/if I send you back my core within a reasonable amount of time? I want to avoid any downtime.

                      sure. we are going to be losing a little bit to paypal fees but I guess in this situation I could arrange that. ygpm btw i put that it might take 3 days it will be at your house by Sat if I ship today.

                            I setup an account as I do use Amazon a lot for everything. PM what you need and I can get you a lightbar in the mail today.
