    For the price go with the justice. Libertys just a basic 4 head bar and are expensive. Mini justice is all around a better value. Shame on the speedtech crap

    You know my vote. For the price you pay you get more for your money with the justice, unless you are interested in putting in take down lights then go with the liberty. But the comparisons I did the justice is brighter then the liberty with with better all around visibility.

    Justice is more of an all around bar. Liberty is kinda plain and costs more for what you get by far!

    The Pinnacle is available in 36", but nothing between the Mini-Pinnacle and that.

    Sorry.

    I'm curious, how much will you save by building a backrack as opposed to buying one? I know a lot of people have them built, but I don't understand why.

    Cause a lot of people have scrap laying around. So it costs them next to nothing. And some can get all the steel they need for around $100. A new one is over $200. So you can save a good bill by doing it yourself.

    Ok, that makes sense, but only if they can weld themselves, right? I wonder if there would be any interest in a group buy.

    Either way whelen bars are the best for the price i bought a whelen liberty fully loaded with mutiple flash patterns for $650 ... and the Justice is a good bar also ..

    You know i used to think the same thing. Then i started buying some soundoff stuff. And i have to say, everything that i have gotten from soundoff is brighter than the stuff i have from whelen. I think their starting to slack.

    Well the small pinnacle bar that i have. And then their smaller 3led version, like whelens TIR3s. Those are the only ones i have used so far other than the mighty light.

    Ok, just curious. I hear people doing it all the time, but figured they only cost about $250 to buy so why bother screwing around with it.
