    I want to run 2 Federal Signal Model 100's on my Back Rack, Im not sure if I want to get the 6.5" Base or the 10.5" base. The mounting studs measure 5.75" apart. What so you guys think?

    Model 100

    Why not just buy the Mini Pinnacle which is probably very close in cost to the 2 of the model 100's

    Put them farther apart... more visiblilty at more angles... just my 2 cents worth!

    what's the diameter of the base of the light. Get as close to it as possible... I'm going to say the 6.5... if you go bigger I'd also think about mounting some side lights under the edge to light the sides of the truck

    the base is like 8.25" but the bolts are only 5.75". its a tough call. Im gonna rin some reverse lights on the rack too!
