    Just ordered the Whelen Liberty LED Lightbar off ebay. It is fully loaded for 1173.00. Think i got a good price since everywhere i found wanted 2,000+ It is a used bar. But barley used. The guy only has 6 more bars left if anyone is thinking of buying one. I should have my bar my the end of the week. Will update once i get it.

    This is not the bar i bought but one of them that he has.

    The guy selling them is a retire police officer. Or thats what he told me. This is what he emailed me.

    .
    A new 2012 bar identical to this one

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/230841589518?ssPageName=STRK:MEUSX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1588.l2649

    will be $1295 - with 6 pad per side mounting feet, including insured shipping and delivery confirmation/tracking
    and
    $1250 with pylon/post mounts, including insured shipping and delivery confirmation/tracking.

    Anything else will be somewhat less.

    Please note. I am not a Whelen dealer. I am a retired police officer that builds these as an extra source of income. I purchased a group of new and used Liberty lightbars that were sold to satisfy a tax judgement against a wholesaler that was delinquent in there taxes. This is why I can sell at below wholesale. When the last 8 bars have been sold, I will have no more. I just want to be upfront about it. I have many satisfied customers and want you to be one also.


    He didnt have the alley lights in stock, and i only needed post mount. So the final price was 1173. We also did the deal out side of ebay. He invoiced me right thur paypal. He took some money off cuz he didnt have to pay ebay fees. I bought the alley light kit for 84.00 shipped. I will add the alleys myself.

    Thats what i thought too, Thats why i bought it and made this post. The take downs he put in are the good ones with 12leds per takedown. When i get it i will take a video for you. I should have it Monday and my Alley lights will be here tuesday. So it will be later next week.

    Sounds like a good deal but also sounds a bit strange. If they are new why does it state refurbished? Just check the parts out carefully as if they are pieced together they warranty is only as good as the dealer and the date on the parts. I have seen lots of hacked up bars (not saying that is what this is) so be sure to look it over carefully.

    Just installing a 4' Liberty bar on my Dump. Took out the take downs in favor of a traffic adviser. Have some M7's to go on the side of the hood too.
    The White/Violet wire should be the patterns change wire.
