    my new setup, very simple and affordable and do the job just fine... i built the mounts for this myself didnt feel like dishing a 100 bucks out to back rack for 10 dollars worth of material. i used to have a mini edge on a backrack and i made that mount as well in under an hour. the strobe beacons are STAR 255 tc's with quad or dual flash, very good lights with a friendly price tag.

    Hey guys with backrack and full size light bars...Will the normal full size lightbar bracket fit the MX 7000? Or do I have to get the seperate beacon mounts and make it work? I was going to open another thread but I think you guys would know best. Thanks

    I have seen a ton of guys in northern Newengland running the two beacon setup. I like it. It's nice and clean looking and gives you 360 coverage just fine. Wish I saw it before I sunk money into a full size clunky lightbar. They are probably bright without drawing a ton of amps too...Darn

    give matt (blue line ent) a call and he'll set you up with whatever you want. his prices are really good and he'll get your light for you really fast.
    hope that helps,
