    I have a fully loaded vista bar on my dump truck. BRIGHT bar! This bar has more lights on it than the city squad cars. Only by two lights though :)
    Plan on getting an LED bar though This bar is only 4 months old from when I bought it, Up for grabs, Ill let this go for $500

    No thats the JetStream LED with 22 LED modules. I got it for like $850 a couple of months ago from AW direct. Their price is now like $1500. Its very bright. I just got a tomar Dash LED that is the brightest thing I have ever seen. My next bar will be A 60" Tomar LED.

    I like how that light looks up on top of your truck plowdude. I have seen it lit up if it is the same truck i am thinking of and it looks excellent why would you want to get rid of it?

    I have to laugh at people I see with Plow trucks with full size (Bulb lite) light bars, ROOKIES! The things pulls OH MY GOD amount of amps when running. Headlights-->14 amps,Light Bar-->20+ amps, heater blower, cell phone charger, plow pump, battery charging = 60 or so amps at idle A 150 amp alternator only puts out 50 amps at idle to 2k RPM.
    Go full size LED if you can afford it. Much less AMP draw!
