    The '99: Whelen Mini-Edge 9M with take-downs, which I mounted backwards to use as backup lights. They work all right, but I'd really love to convert the halogens to LEDs.

    The '06: Buyers POS LED bar (that'll be gone soon....) and some Grote Halogen backup lights. They are actually pretty bright for what they are. My only complaint is I have a toolbox in my truck now and they reflect off the lid of the box and its a little annoying. Thats probably going to be the case with any light I put of there though.

    My experience with the takedowns on the 9m is that they just shoot too high and too far away to be of any use. I'd skip LED's and look for floods. If they were floods rather than spots they would be better IMO.

    Here's a shot of the F550 salt truck with 5yd smith SS dual electric v-box. 4 35w HID's, 1 on either side of the chute, and 1 on either side of the v-box behind the cab. Turn's night into day! Thumbs Up Also have a whelen patriot (i think) mini strobe bar, and 4 TIR3's across the rear (you can barely see them above the "keep back when flashing" reflective decals). Got a new camera for Christmas so I'm going to do a walk-around of it one of these days...

    HAHA sound off is the company, 1400 lumen lights, very nice. I have 2 rigid industries duallys i still need to wire up, but they are crazy bright when i hook them up. 1350 lumens, and bulletproof.

    Funny huh? I know who sound off is. :nod: I have one of there Strobe Boxes.

    I was asking if they were as good as the Rigid Industries ones and if so are they cheaper?

    Oh gotcha my bad. But ughhhhh, they are over priced in my opinion, compared to the rigid industries duallys. i picked up a pair for 170 shipped. very happy with the light output need to mount them now.

    170.00 IMO is high too, but I guess if the sound offs are more then I'll pass lol. I seen some of the Rigids in action today at my buddies shop and I couldn't believe how bright they are. I'm going to get a set for back up lights. I tend to be blind when I back up sometimes.
    Whoops! :eek:
