    Whelen Guardian Mini Lightbar, Suction/Magnetic Mount, Model# G2VA. I only have had it on my truck a couple of times. I decided it is too bright for my application, I plow all residential driveways (mainly in housing tracks) and it lights up the neighborhoods!. This mini lightbar is basically new, and is great! I would love to keep it, but it is too bright for me. The suction/magnet mount is nice because it doesn't scratch your roof everytime you put it on and off. I paid $140.00, open to reasonable offers. Buyer will be resonsible for shipping.

    I recently bought a different brand of mini-bar, or I'd be on this deal like a chicken on a bug. From that pic, I just realized how big the reflectors are behind the bulbs in one of those. No wonder it lights up the whole neighborhood when it's on.

    I've got a thread going with some questions about the vacuum mounts, if you'd care to pop in there and offer some comments. I'll leave your thread to those who are in the market for a good used mini-bar. (I might know somebody who'd be interested. I'll make sure he sees this thread.)

    From what I saw there, it was $68.60 for the permanent mount, and another $20 for the magnetic mount. They don't seem to have the vacuum magnetic mount listed, which is usually an additional cost for the makes/models that have that option. The unit for sale above is a G2VA, magnetic/suction mount.

    $68.60 is for the G1 model. this one for sale is a G2, with the fast rotators.. which is more expensive. A used G2 is worth around $100 or so. Well worth it.

    No problem Dissociative, I understand. I'm good with letting go for $100, but I don't want to eat the shipping costs. That ebay light will go over a $100!
