    Just wondering if the whelen light bars are worth it or not? the full size models i am looking at are the Whelen Justice series super LED lightbar $999.99, and the lfl liberty super LED for 899.99 On the other hand for minis i was thinking of the mini justice super led 499.99 or the LP series responder LED 299.99.

    I figured i would also put in whelen HAWs in the head and tail lights as well but need some suggestions of what to get from whelen as well Thanks

    justiceis a better buy beacuse you get more leds in the bar for a cheaper price if you wanted all leds int the liberty it would cost you 1200 but if i were you i would get the mini justice

    I run just a mini liberty LED, and that little bar gives me PLENTY of warning power both day and night!

    What you buy depends on what you are using it for. Are you using it strictly for plowing? Are you responding to emergencies with it? If u have a full size truck and you are plowing, anything you put on the roof will be perfectly ok. If you responding with your truck, then you want something high and low, for both distance and for catching someone's eye in their rearview.

    like others have said, just depends on what you are doing and how much you want to spend....as far as hideways, i have a 6 port 60 watt supply with four heads on it...that's plenty for me, but for not much more money you can get a whelen 90 watt power supply, which i would do if i bought another kit...

    the only requirement to using all of our advice is that you have to post pics/vid when the lights are all done =]

    it just really boils down to how much you wanna spend ??? .. for $500 dollars the (Justice) light bar from whelen its fantastic ... good light coverage from all angles .... the responder only offers 6 leds versus Justice that offers 8 led modules .. for an extra 200 bucks .... just preference i guess ... just my .002
