    Can anybody tell me their opinion as to which LED full size light bar is the brightest and most eye catching ??? I am getting ready to pull the trigger and I do not care how much it is, I just want it to be the brightest one I can find. THANKS for your opinions and help !!!

    I've got a 24" Federal Signal Legend that is pretty intense. Never compared it to a Whelen or other major brand though.

    I have to agree with everyone else the Liberty is one of the best bars made.

    Is there an actual measurement done by manufacturers?

    Like I said Whelen's are great, but it is very close between those and a SoundOff. I've been switching to SoundOff because they're less expensive. And I have had some flasher issues with the Whelen's, which they have fixed under warranty.

    dfd9, I went to Parr Supply and they have numerous bars and the liberty is hands down the brightest and they made a special purchase from Whelen that they can sell me a fully loaded amber bar (no open spaces) for 1400.00 !!!

    If you wanted to get technical the federal signal legend is brighter than a liberty. But every big manufacture has a lightbar thats as bright as the next.

    AGREED.. it was the first one i bought for a 06 f350... its 4yrs old now at least, all amber, and damn, on a highway or around reflective signs it looks like everything is flashing a mile away even!

    bright enough that we bought justice full bars for other trucks, mini justice $550 bars for others and i figued anything whelen will be plenty bright for snow plowing lol.. the liberty is just ungodly bright though... most cop cars at least all state police in NJ have them, almost annoying b/c so many cops run around or are parked with them on, at night its a bad distraction and hard to see past them.
