    I have a LED dash light already and need something for people to see from the back or 360. I bought a 360 LED strobe light & you can't even see it in the day. What would you suggest?? Not looking to spend alot.....maybe $300. I don't want to buy a full blow light bar. I like the "stealth" mode. lol

    Strobe lights take less power but I like the amber mini bar lights. You should be able to find them at your local auto or plow accessory stores. Priced between $115.00 & $135.00.

    I personally like Halogens... If your going to go LED for a mini bar go with a Whelen Responder II... Code 3 and Federal has some really great little light bars under the $200-$300 mark.

    I like the Halogens due to the fact that they can be seen day or night sunny or overcast etc... Yes they draw more amps but they have the penitrating power to get attention!

    I believe its a "meterorlite".....made in the US.

    I do NOT want to buy a light bar of any kind. Just need something for when we're working on the roads or at night.

    I've got a little Whelen Cadet w/Amber...2 speeds, Real Bright on Sunny Days, Little amp. Mag Mount. Very impressive little light. I think I bought it for like $50 or so.

    Well I really would rather not want to spend $375 for hide-aways & I don't want to drill lightheads into the rear of my truck. Plus there would be no where to put them in the back........

    Any 360 LED's that are UNDER $175 & are good???

    I'll put my little Whelen Cadet up against any of those strobes for light during the day... Even the other Whelen's You notice... $50! They also come with a cover so you can put it on your dash w/o blinding you as the rotator spins!

    The Sho-Me's and the others (not the Whelens) are made in China.

    Guys PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!! The truck is in my signature. I ALREADY have a LED dash light. I need something for the back..........$375 for hide-aways was the price installed & power supply. I think I may just go with the hide-aways....I'd rather not drill and the truck & according to you guys there's no good 360 LED for around $175.........
