    Picked up one (mag mount) for F250 crew cab.Bought it for ease of talking off roof when not in use.Haven't seen to many reviews but it is a powerful light for its size.Now I'm thinking it will look to small on truck so am going to return it for Whelen Century.The whelen is $40 cheaper.Anyone here rather the compacts over the 16 " bars.I have a new backrack installed so am leaning towards the Century in a permanent mount.What do folks here think of the Hella brand.I think the opinions of most here is what is drawing me to the Whelen brand.

    Can't help with the Hella brand but, I personally like the look of a larger "mini" bar. I found a 27" bar from 911 Rapid Response, super bright even in the day and it looks slick on my 2500. Best part was for a 27" bar it was cheaper than the 17" Whelen Responder.

    If I were you I'd go with Whelen, their century series seems to be very nice and affordable. I personally use a Whelen responder and it's light output it awesome and it's not even linear.
