    how many total LEDS are there in the bar.. my 55" liberty with 14 led heads fully populated(police model) with alleys and take downs was around 1700
    from looking at that i would say its too expensive to have 4 rear facing leds (2 are the brake/tail/turn lights) and i cant tell if there are any front facing leds.. id say 900-1000 is better for that bar

    that is a pic of the front there is no rear pic of that bar.

    I think the econ modules have 6led's in them. not 100% on the number.

    the economy has 4 leds and the premium has 6... all the corners will have 12 leds in them.
    you said it has takedown lights which is why i assumed it was a pic of the rear since there are no takedowns in that piture.. unless this is a towman version then they would be reaer facing (worklights). so it then has 6 front facing leds the 4 corners and 4 rearfacing leds, s/t/t and rear worklights.. the 1200 might be a good price if thats the case..

    as far as it being too much for a plowtruck.. i run the full police model liberty on my truck on difference is its amber and it definately keeps people away from the truck which is a plus

    in that case its not a bad deal since youve got 6 upfront leds (as long as you dont want the takedowns up there, but i think you cna just move them if you do) then youve got 2or4 rearfacing leds, the brake lights and the rear worklights, plus alleys. i know the towman models for more than the normal ones.. also is the whole wiring harness included or is it cut? my bar had 25-30 wires coming out of it...
