    Liberty and patriot are essentially the same bar just different name and no strobes in a liberty.

    Found the guy on ebay.
    Yea the liberty and patriot are on the same frame but the patriot had strobes and the liberty is all led. Whelen doesn't make the patriot anymore. The frame I had cut down to a shorter length.

    I love my patriot. All clear lenses with amber LEDs in the center (front and rear with takedowns) it has clear corner strobes and they definitely pack way more of a punch than the LED's especially being clear. The led are not the newest line so that probably has somethig to do with it. Strobes and LED together is definitely a nice combo!

    Thanks heres the guys user name salliquidation2008
    Yea you are right WlliamOak. Strobes are still my favorite cause durn the day the are still bright as they are it night and yea the leds in this bar are used to not new so he said they might not be as brigh as new ones. And yea the patriot is one of my favorite lightbars from whelen. I had a custom whelen edge before had the frame cut down to 39" and it had 12 strobes it was bright haha but wanted a patriot cause it's more slim.

    I have a patriot bar on my truck ordered from whelen when they where making them it's a 55" with the 8 stobes and the rest led with takes downs and ally lights. i like the differnt color and light pattern you get wetween the strobe and led. i think this bar gives you the best of both worlds.

    i like the style of the liberty and look to it but can justify 2G for pricing for just snow plowing a local contracter in my city has a liberty with all led modules .... looks nice when lit up ..but 2G yeah right .... i just found a 48" whelen patriot ... i bought from a V FF so i stripped out the lenses and ordered new ones ... the whelen justices are cool bars ... but the flash patterns are kinda lame in technology dept ...
