    I was looking at the Show-Me Able 2 LED mini light bar, does anyone have anything good/bad to say about them? Any info would be great.

    I ordered one on ebay about a month ago, and the guy ended up sending me a red/blue one. But it was bright as heck! Had some nice flash patterns also.

    I thought about 1 but after seeing 2 trucks this weekend with them decided not to, Looked like after a few inches on the roof it blocks the light, i'll pass on this one.

    Bought one last year. Only thing I don't like about it is that it is low profile, and looks kinda funny sitting on my F350. Would love to have something a little taller. Got a rack now though, so maybe I'll mount it on that.

    Thing is very bright and the flash patterns are nice.

    One thing though, I bought mine from strobesnmore, but it will be the first, and last I ever buy from them. Let's just say that the owner's customer service skills aren't the greatest.

    I've mounted mine on my back rack, and I'd have to say that's probably the best way because it is so low profile. Than again, I've seen plenty of road construction trucks with them on the cab with the magnet mount and they're bright enough that it really doesn't matter.

    Umm a few inches of snow on the roof? Did you see them on plow trucks? Or trucks that sit through the storm. I will agree the last few storms my light bar and roof iced up up a bit. But they are so bright it didnt matter. I think they are best looking bang for buck light

    Go with something with Linear LEDs, they are far and away superior to the 5mm LEDs used in the Able2 bar. Check out the Whelen Responder LIN version.

    Good point, it is certainly bright enough. Mine is the mag mount too...

    I'll probably leave it there till spring. I just welded up a my back rack and put it on a couple of weeks back, and we're up to our arses in snow here in NS. Truck is too big to fit in my garage, and I'm getting too old to be outside working on a vehicle in the snow! :)

    I have the 1200 in amber on my Jeep. i really like it - for the occasions I use it, it works great. I had some compliments from some of Illinois State's Finest when I was first on scene of a semi-jackknife and used my jeep sideways on I-290 to direct all traffic onto the shoulder around the diesel fuel and debris.... after I made sure the driver was OK.....

    i mounted to an over the windsheild bar - so its still on during summer when I go soft-top....

    Why were they complaining??? Sounds like you were helping the situation and picking up their slack.

    I ordered mine before Christmas and it showed up the other day. It's bright and really works great. The pattern selector button is also nice even though I just leave mine in random mode.
