    Have a chance to pick one up local for only 200. I was thinking I have seen people run the mini ones but 48 in bar is a good size. I currently just have a nasty looking dual rotater. Should I pick this up? Do you think it will be to much or to big? Just any input I guess will work. Thanks

    I have found that it is better to make your own decision for things like this, you post it on a forum, somebody looks at where you are from and gets to it before you can, but that is just my personal experience. If it is good shape and everything works, go for it.

    I'm old school but is that edge an LED or strobe? a 48" bar for $200 is a good deal if everything works. Clear and clean lenses. It costs about that for a new strobe pwr unit inside the 9000 series bars anyway. Keep your old rotators close by just in case.

    ok yes the lenses and everything are clean and clear its a strobe light. he said it works all good nothing wrong. He said he will through a warrenty on it. He got it from a trade for a new bar. He sells them around here gets them all the time.

    most bars are either a 49" or 60" dont think iv ran into a 52" evon tho its only a whoping 3"s big deal if its a 48". 4" or so isent gona gain ya much. i have a 49" 911ep millennium bar on a gmc k1500 pickup. and a 60" would be way to big unless its on a rack or something. but for a roof mount. a 49" or so would work.
