    well i bit the big one today and bought a new lightbar. and shes a beaut. its a brand new 47 inch 22 actual GEN 4 led modules. this thing is crazy bright we compared them to tier 3's and there was no comparison these had to be 10x brighter. the bar its self is a tomar engineered light bar with show-me leds in it. it hasnt even come out yet the only reason why i got it was my buddy is a distributor and he got the first ones. theyre listing for $2,499 but i can get them much cheaper it comes with the switch box, gutter mounting hardware take towns alleys in LED of course. if anyone is interested in getting one or even just the leds i can get them heres some before pics of the lightbar before i put it on the truck tommorow when she gets put on and ill grab some video of it in action

    not bad we did the comparison to the liberty since thats the one i dreamed about getting and this is about 10x brighter. still hurts ur eyes at 200 feet away in the day time and a lot easier and cheaper to work on if anything was to go wrong...like if the controller in the liberty was to go out the bar would just about be toast completely cuz of the cost to fix it...my bar if the controller were to go out ur looking at 37.95 for a brand new one lol. my mechanic just put it on the truck and said it was the best bar hes ever seen. he was so impressed he called his buddy who is a whelen dealer to come down and look at it and now hes impressed he wants to buy a couple of bars to put on his shelf.

    i just talked to my buddy who sold me the bar and hes willing to come down on price because so many people are interested. $1,549.99 fully loaded with switch box, hardware whole 9 yards. remember this bar is fully loaded with arrow stick over 15 flash paterns (probally way more havent tried it out yet) 22 of the brightest leds on the planet. there is nothing like this bar on the market i can guarantee.

    he also has mini versions of this same bar, also strips or just single modules.

    ok enough of my spiel im going out side to video this thing in action and ill let u guys be the judge

    i was told they are made by guy who is huge in the light industry that went out on his own the frames are aluminum from pittsburg steel the electronics are tomar engineered and the 4th generation LED's are made special from sho-me. this isnt a flimsy chinese knock-off this is the real deal. this thing brighter then any other bar out there and its beefy
