    light

    well its all depending on how much you want to spend

    i would go with the whelen talon beacuse the whelen avenger just replaced it so your gonna find them cheep they are the brightest light you will ever see but thats what i think or you could buy the new avenger and that is better than the talon with the same brightness for i think $235 payup

    I would just buy a Whelen Responder LED for $299 from www.strobesnmore.com and be done with it. There is no way I could plow with a dash light...:nod:

    Yeah I have a Whelen Guardian already. I love it, it's a great light. I'm probably just going to stick with it the more I think about it.

    Tomar 200s blows the talon out of the water. They come in high power med power low power - go with either med or high power you will not be disappointed.

    Tomars are bright but pricey.

    Dash lights are a waste of money. a mini lightbar and rear strobes are perfect. you get the 360 visibility and when you are backing out of driveways they see your truck for sure. Guys with a million lights on there truck are compensating for something else. ussmileyflag

    i have dash lights in both my trucks but iwould never plow with them b/c of the flashback. you can deal with it for 10 min but not for hours.
