    so my brother bought a backrack from a guy on here and it came with these strip lights on it, so we took em off his back rack and put em on my backrack, so thats why one is red they were free i didnt pick the colors, lol but either way i might pick up another amber one in the future and swap the red one out.

    But here they are with my dual rotator, ill be swapping the rotator with the mini edge i just got soon.

    Mini edge

    yeah im trying to figure out whats wrong with it, i have been emailing whelen and they are stumped, lol i tested it and it ran for about 5 minuts then shut down like you said, he said usually if the power supply is bad it just wont work, so i dunno im gonna fiddle tomorrow with it.

    Do you know how much a power supply costs? Should be able to find the problem since there isn't to much involved in the way the light bar is made.

    that looks sweet, could you get a close up pic of the light strips. I am looking into something like that when i put my back rack on my new chevy. I am done with the corner strobe kit i have, has not worked right since i bought it.

    A new edge power supply from Whelen is $399. Better off finding one on Ebay.

    yeah i have been in contact with a few guys, and one guy sells the power supples quarenteed for 90 days for 50 bucks, and whelen will rebuild your own one, or sell you a refurbished one for like 50 i believe, and i have been looking on ebay for em so those are my three options.
