    I sell many of the sound off ones, however I have never seen a whelen one in person. So id go with a sound of light, great angle and super bright, look great either way with or without dress rings depending on where your mounting them, if i cut them into a chrome bumper i use the dress rings, otherwise the grommet mount is great too.

    Are they able to be synced together or are they independant from each other?

    That whelen is the Oooooolllllddddddd 500 series with gen1 LED's, they're worth about 10 bucks, yet northern takes that old crap and makes it seem like it worth something to unsuspecting buyers. I had those same lights on my truck 10 years ago, and LED's have come a loooooong ways since then. Get some Whelen Tir6 or Lin6 with the grommet mount, you can thank me later. The place I use is vlsusa .com or I'd bet strobes n more (sponsor on here) can set you up for about the same price as vls.

    Do they make linear ones? These look like the older tir style.

    Now that I think about it, something like the Ion's may look better than mounting oval brackets, it would be one thing if the backrack had oval cutouts already.

    They look nice, heck any product from whelen is nice. I'd like to gave everything flush mounted, once our first truck is finished I can show you guys.
    But everything including some 4" piaa's (4) will be flush/ recessed. I really like the 500 series super led the ion would make a good light for our spreader
