  2. Lookin' good! Thanks for sharing Baja Designs’ Industry’s First Laser Light Wins 2018 SCORE Baja 1000 Ensenada, Baja California Mexico The SCORE Baja 1000 is considered the toughest and most grueling in all of off road racing. To finish the “Granddaddy of all Desert Races” is a tribute to ones will and fortitude. Justin Morgan on the 7x Honda was the quickest and overall winner with a total elapsed time of 16 Hours 23 Minutes and 26.2 Seconds. Cameron Steele in the #16 SCORE Trophy Truck was right behind on time by just under 36 seconds and was able to win his second straight SCORE Trophy Truck race. The 2018 SCORE Baja 1000 Winners and many other top finishers all chose Baja Designs Premium Off Road Lighting to help them get safely through the 806 mile course, much of it under darkness. When all was said and done, Baja Designs Lighting was equipped on the winner’s vehicles on ten of the 4 Wheel Vehicle Classes and six of the Moto & Quad classes. Adding all of that up figures 16 Class Winners, the overall UTV / Pro UTV Forced Induction Winner, the overall 4 Wheel Vehicle / SCORE Trophy Truck Winner, and the Race Overall Victory / Pro Moto Unlimited Winner all supported by Baja Designs. SCORE Trophy Truck Winner; Cameron Steele has much to be proud of after chasing an elusive Trophy Truck Win for over 13 years. Steele has wrestled the proverbial monkey off his back and can now also treasure the big Baja 1000 victory. “Baja Designs Laser Lights gave us confidence on the course,” stated Cameron. “Draw and power was never an issue. The lighting was a perfect even blend with no spots. In all my years of racing at night, never have I ever thought I wouldn’t change a thing about my lighting until this Baja 1000. It’s amazing! Baja Designs keeps proving there is no better lighting for what we do and this technology is available for practically any application.” Following behind Steele in second place right in SCORE Trophy Truck class was Andy McMillin’s laser equipped truck with Tavo Vildosola driving the night section. Tavo stated, “We ran with just the bottom light bar 85%-90% of the time, where the laser lights were located. You could definitely make a clear distinction between the LED lights and the laser lights. They were brighter and sharper than the LED’s. They provided great coverage without any dark spots. I am very happy with the performance of the new Baja Designs Laser lights and look forward to running them again at the Mint 400.” Bryce Menzies was also carrying the Baja Designs new laser technology as was first place SCORE Hammer Truck Unlimited Class winner, Casey Currie. The resounding overall 2018 SCORE Baja 1000 Race Win by the 7X Honda was the first time since 2013 the bikes were quicker than the Trophy Trucks. Without a doubt, Justin Morgan and the 7X pilots were aided by the powerful lighting supplied Baja Designs. When asked about how Baja Designs lighting performed during the race, Justin Morgan replied; “The results speak for themselves. The lights are awesome. I was using the old Solteks when I first started racing. These new lights perform amazingly, weigh less, are easy to mount on bikes, and they are easier on your eyes. No spots. I don’t think it gets any better than that.” Morgan could not have asked for a better ending to a perfect season [winning every 2018 SCORE Race] for this newly formed team and will now adorn the prestigious 1x Plate as Pro Moto Unlimited Class Champions. The other notable headline for the 2018 Baja 1000 is the Overall UTV Champion. Wayne Matlock in the #2971 Polaris RZR made impressive work over the 800 mile course. Finishing 30th overall in time span of 20 Hours 25 Minutes and 17.8 Seconds to beat out 29 other Pro UTV Forced Induction Class competitors and a total of 49 UTVs is pretty much a record breaking accolade on its own. The real achievement is the race win makes Matlock the first ever UTV to win the SCORE-International overall points championship. No matter if you are racing for the win in the most legendary off road race, or achieving a life long dream of capturing a championship victory, or while just playing out on the trails, Baja Designs Lighting system will cut through the dark and light up the path. Proven to outperform, Baja Designs is the choice of winners and champions.

    The AC and DC models are slightly different. One way to check if you have the AC version is to see if the silver converter is included in the packaging or attached to the light. If you accidentally ordered or received the wrong product, please contact us at 800-422-5292 or info@bajadesigns.com Baja Designs www.bajadesigns.com
  5. Hi Bob, Our apologies about the delay, have you contacted our tech support department (info@bajadesigns.com)? It sounds like there is a short somewhere in the system if your headlight is only receiving two volts. After the Baja Designs AC adapter, you should be receiving 12V DC current. Please reach out to us directly at 800-422-5292 so we can help resolve this. Baja Designs www.bajadesigns.com
  6. Thanks everyone for the feedback. We are looking forward to the next post to provide more info on Build Quality and other details! PART 2 - BUILD QUALITY - Coming Soon

  9. Please understand we have only addressed one piece if the puzzle so far. These referenced specs are easily digestible examples that the average consumer can identify and understand. We can also very clearly demonstrate that the claimed specs are totally false and the customer is being lied to, which is the point of this campaign. To help the customer to be critical of where they are spending their money. “reflector/lens design and color temp is far more important. This is why cheap light bars put out bright white light in all directions but where you need it. People are sucker fish, and are more than happy to save money when buying garbage.” Mostly we agree, though we’d say output and reflector design are on fairly equal playing fields, rather than one outweighing the other. We design all of our reflectors in-house, for the specific purpose of driving/off-roading. In part two, we’ll be comparing the effectiveness of our reflectors versus those available in cheap alternative and clones, among other factors of build quality. Also, there are very few if any other companies using a 5000k color temp LED. We only use top-bin LEDs in the 5000k range. Most are using 6000k and above. We really do appreciate the feedback. Our goal here is to help educate consumers to purchase quality products from manufacturers that are honest with their customers and helping to support an industry we all care about. You may get lucky with a cheap light off amazon and we are totally ok with that. But we are not happy to see people purchasing from companies that steal designs, inflate specs, take your money, and disappear.
  10. Knock off the Lies: Why Buying Quality LED Lights Matters "Why spend so much for lights when I can get them cheaper without the name brand?" "This light bar on Amazon has way more lumens and costs half as much - what gives?" "I can get 100 lights for $10 each on Alibaba you guys are robbing customers with your margins!" Not All Lumens Are Created Equal - Especially When Others Are Lying In a multi-part series, we will be breaking down what separates Baja Designs from the imitators, fakes, and clones. Check back often for updates! Video: PART 2 - BUILD QUALITY Coming Soon
