    I have both...led's are small and work well enough.

    My Whelen strobes can be seen and are taken notice of sooner and better than the leds.

    LEDs ride well

    Strobes cost more to run

    LEDs or Strobes....what is your thoughts ?

    I prefer the versatility of LEDs, having the ability to run multiple colors in the same package is ideal for me.

    My old truck I had a whelen patriot bar and that had the led/ strobe combo I like the both on the bar for hid a ways I like the strobe. I have to equip my new truck and will probably do it that way for primary warning lights and for more or extra I would do led like Lin 6.

    I have one truck with a whelen strobe bar on it, one with a dual rotator, and the rest are LED. The strobe maybe a bit brighter but not enough to matter.
