    Have a set for sale.

    I have a set of 2 Whelen Vertex Hideaways in Amber for 130.00 shipped. I also can get really good deals on most whelen products.

    Thanks

    No thanks, I am not interested in the vertex led's, my friend had them and got rid of them just as fast because they weren't bright enough. He replaced them with 90 watt amber hideaways and they were way brighter.

    Less draw

    And strobes have nearly three time the power draw over LED's and LED's dont get nearly as hot in the lenses.

    I think that placement is everything with a LED Hideaway. You need as much of the reflector to catch the light as possible.

    I have installed and sold hundreds of sets of these to Police, Fire and Municipalities with nothing but compliments.

    My friends were not even close to that in brightness. His were about half as bright, and I am positive they were Whelen Vertex. He had them installed by a local whelen dealer that sets up police cars in the area.

    The bad thing with the strobes is the flash back when its snowing. It can drive you nut while plowing. With the LED's flash back doesn't really happen. LED"s also last longer

    This is true but if you have a 2 switch system you can shut the front off when not needed and run just your rear strobes.:waving:
