    Yo guys. I am looking for an amber lightbar for the top of my Ford SD to replace the dinky one bulb strobe that got up there now..... Can anyone with a lightbar recommend one to me and maybe give a ballpark price on what i am looking at cost wise. I definetely want a magnet mount.... don't wanna be looking like the verizon truck in the off season :) Anyways, thanks in advance.

    PS, if you guys know of a good place on the net to purhcase one, include that too!!!!

    Gettin pumped up! Kev payup payup payup

    Several are list on eBay on any given day. Look under: strobe lightbar, all categories. The thing you want to watch for is the output joules. The more joules the brighter they are. I like strobe lights & personally prefer the whelen strobe mini-bar. I just purchased one of these on ebay for $200.00 shipped, which is 1/2 price of Galls.com. You can spend anywhere from $85.00 - ????? for a good quality lightbar. One of the sponsors (strobesupply.com) here at Plowsite has a good looking mini-bar for $159.00 + shipping. LED lights are the next new big thing, you might want to check them out before you purchse. To each is his own, you can spend as much as you want. I like to have plenty of warning power! :waving:

    To Boast

    Hey guys thanks a lot for the speedy replies.... Hey Boast: Can you send me a link or something to the mini bar you got for 200 on ebay? i am a big Ebay fan and use it frequently. 200 is a reasonable price so if i can see where to find it i should be in good shape.

    Thanks, Kevin

    Well are you looking for a mini lightbar or fullsize lightbar? If your looking for a fullsize lightbar, you definetly cant use magnets. On the mini bars you can!
    What is your price range?
