    Here is my new Whelen Mini Justice LED lightbar installed on my back rack. It was a magnet mount and I took them off and I did a little fab work to flush mount it as close to the top of the Pro Rack as possible. The first picture is from one of my accounts which is a parking garage and I just fit under the cement by 3/4 of an inch if that. I ran it through the third brakelight and into the cab. I have bolted to the rack with three lock bolts and I am fabbing a rectangle lock box to go around the bolts where I can lock it shut and no one will have access to the bolts or the light. It will have a hinge and a lock on it with a key. I am working on that tomorrow. I also have a video of it during the day. It was about 2 in the afternoon when I shot the video. It is very bright during the day I just can imagine what it will look at night. Hope you guys enjoy.

    Not the best video, but you get the idea.I also turned on my whelen 90 watt 6 strobe heads. I have the four corner strobes and then I added 2 whelen linear 500 amber strobes to the Pro Rack with the two remaining slots. I dont think I will have a problem getting peoples attention in my lots.

    ya that is pretty bright for a strobe bar. dang cops all went to these led strobe bars and now at night they hurt when they hit you in the face.

    Wow, the cops around here still use "nightsticks" to beat criminals.....alot easier to carry and more cost effective. But i can see how a lightbar could do damage to your face.

    Great looking set up, sweet light. My Pro Rack should be here tomorrow, looking forward to getting it installed with the light.

    I did at first, But it would not fit under the area I am showing in the first picture. So I sent it back and upgraded to the justice. I am very pleased with the light output of this bar. I will get a night video this evening.

    $469 with free shipping from strobes and more. Free shipping of all whelen products through the month. They were $499 orginal there but they priced match the northern tools website offer of $469 for the same lightbar.
