    I am looking to see if there is anything out there that you are looking to get rid of.

    I am getting back into plowing since i need to make money LOL

    I am looking for a full size bar and I know you will think i am nuts but i dont like the led's

    I had a mx-7000 and it was great but I would prefer strobe

    I am not looking to pay your truck/plow monthly payment or your house payment, so let me know what you have

    I will drive a little ways for a good deal or pay for shipping

    Thanks

    why don't you like the led lightbars? they draw less juice and you don't here the clicking like the strobes. if you buy a good brand like code 3 or whelen they will last as long as you will. but i would stay away from the cheap ebay china crap. (the ones metro sells) no offence metro. i had one and they are junk.

    Thanks for the link, I found exactly what i was looking for.

    As for the bashing of Metro's stuff, keep it to your self. The man is selling products that he has been given the opportunity to offer.

    I am sure if we go thru everyones house or office not everything you own is made in the USA.

    Trust me i prefer to buy stuff from anywhere but china, but sometimes you have no choice, our you cant afford to pay top dollar for something.

    John is a stand up guy and would do anything for anyone, and he is just trying to give a deal to plowsite on the products he has access too.

    ok

    Rant off

    easy big fella. im not bashing him i actually like the guy. almost sold him a truck last year and seemed like a great guy. if you have ever had a led bar like the ones hes goy you would understaind. im just giving you a heads up. i had leds go out and it came with gaps in the lenses i have to seal up.wasnt happy. for the price its a great deal but they dont compare to whelen and code 3 led bars. why is it you dont like leds? i have had them all (kinda a light nut) and have been the most happy with them.

    as for the led bars, maybe it is the ones i have seen and used but they don't seem to get your attention in the areas i am plowing. With the strobes it throws out more light and i think that people see the light sooner. Sure the led's are a lot brighter but also a lot more Money

    tojay, I wasnt bashing you I was just standing up for john he is a great guy and has helped me out in the past. thats all

    ic. all i was getting at was.. I didn't know if you already had a cheap led bar that left a bad taste in your mouth and you assumed they all were like that. that's all. good luck with the strobe light hunt. whelen has a nice line of them. the lfl low profile ones are real bright. i have a few minis they make and love em.
