Rigid’s D-Series Lights: What You Need to Know

by John M. Arnaud

Several times a year, Rigid Industries shines a spotlight on one of its product lines. This spring’s shining star? The D-Series, whose lights are designed to fit into small spaces without compromising lumens or heat dissipation. They’ve also endured Rigid’s famous Torture Tested program, so they’re tough enough to beam you out of whatever trouble you get yourself into.

The D-Series is Rigid’s original light cube. Coming in at a compact 3” x 3” size, D-Series lights mount just about anywhere: pillar bars, horizontal bars, vertical bars, handlebars, license plates, trailers, and more.

Making either 1,568 or 3,096 lumens, D-Series lights offer more surface cooling than any comparably sized light, while emitting a variety of lux patterns: spot, flood, driving, diffused, wide, and hyperspot, which offers an astounding 93,000 Candelas at peak intensity.

Light covers provide both protection and custom light colors. Choose from clear; opaque; translucent yellow, blue, red, green, and gray; black; and even camo.

The D-Series family of lights from Rigid Industries includes the Dually and D2 (land and marine), HD Dually, D2 HD, and all the installation accessories you could ever need. Kits include mounting brackets and hardware, as well as a plug-and-play wiring harness with Deutsch connector and switch.
