    Im looking for something to be "permanent or semi permanent" over the entire fall/winter seasons and something i can remove if i choose to during the summer months.

    One guy on here has the Code 3 Excalibur on his new Dodge and its sweet. Its a clear low profile model. Do you need the rotator type or can you use straight LED type? I see these go upto over $2k in price, ouch. Is it possible to find an LED lightbar low profile type in the $500 range?

    Yes it is possible to find something in that price range. Do a google or yahoo search for led warning lights and there will be pages upon pages of links to click, I will usually go thru lshlights.net or sirennet.com. Or you might try galls.com. I would go with a code mini led x. It is 22 inches long. I have a 4 cornor led bar with 6 up optixs in the cornors and it is plenty bright. Or whelen has some pretty nice led bars too. The mini liberty bar is pretty sweet.

    thanks.. the whelen site has a msrp pricelist, but it appears they sell everything in parts. whats the liberty bars cost? some are small or have 2-4 lights and others have 8-10 lights, im sure theyre the ones closer to $1,000?

    I guess id look for one that had the corner ambers, front/rears and maybe the two rear red brake lights when you hit the brakes they light up bright too?

    The best thing going right now on Mini-LED bars is the Whelen Responder. This is a relatively new bar being offered by Whelen. They are offered in two different styles. The less expensive CON3 model is a excellent light for the money and is more than adequate for the needs of a plow truck. The more expensive linear model is nice but expect to pay about $50 more for it depending on the retailer. FWIW - I purchased the Linear model but I am a bit of a lighting "junkie" :) I do not think I would recommend most spend the extra money on it for plowing. However for a first responders vehicle (firefighter/EMT) I would recommend the linear.

    An amber magnet mount CON3 style is selling for around $250 depending on where you decide to pick one up.

    These are lightyears above the Sho-Me mini LED bars that so many people have been purchasing.

    The Mini-LEDX from Code 3 is a nice bar but very spendy. For a plow truck I personally could not justify spending the extra money.
