    I finally broke down and bought the sales pitch at the local dealer. Walked out with the ECCO 5135 mini lightbar for $127.99

    Not too bad, it has the rubber belt drive, so it wont sound like a coffee grinder!

    I'll take and post some pictures when I get it mounted and wired!

    hehe, I had to work all season to get it, lol.

    Actually I wanted to get one since last spring, but never did, and since I just decided to build a new headache rack, I decided to get the light as well.

    I'll get some pictures of the installation and with it on, it looks pretty cool, 480 fpm!

    Hey John,
    I have the same light on my dually. Just got it past fall. works good, but the flash pattern seems a little fast compared to the Whelen and Star we use on other trucks. Nice, bright and a bit quieter than others though. so far, so good.

    Well I got it mounted and wired the other day. Here are a few pics:

    This one also shows the headache rack that I designed and built over spring break.

    I will try to get somemore pictures this weekend. I'm going to be pulling off the rack and adding a few more support buttresses to try to minimize the amount of vibration at the top of the rack.

    p.s.- Szorno, I kind of like the flash pattern, much more attention grabbing than the FedSig highliter, and its sort of hard to take a picture of, as you can see. The rubber belt drive is so much quieter than the old plastic gears, you can hardly hear it turning!
