    is it LED or strobe? If it works the price is right otherwise they are expensive to repair.

    Its strobe and he says it works I have not drove up to look at it yet. I wanted to check the price out first. I am going to make him show that it works before I buy it.

    I rebuilt a mini edge 28" and it was over $300 in parts. Just make sure EVERYTHING works as it should. I also suggest hard wiring with a pattern controller. Pay attention to how it is wired on the truck.
    Personally I would look for a LED bar. More durable and newer technology.

    Don't wast your money on used strobes. For about the same price you can get a mini led bar with a warranty. Strobes are out dated and a thing of the past. 100,000 hours compared to something that can burn out an hour after you install it. Just my 2 cents but shop around before you bite. Talk to Louis at strobesnmore.com for a mini bar that's probably just as bright with a warranty.

    A power supply= big bucks to replace
    Strobe tube= big bucks to replace
