    Is it just me or does anyone else feel it ridiculous to put a $500 light bar on my loader!?!
    Also i have a JD Loader i think its a 5059 or something with a cab and HEAT xysport, Where would i put a lightbar so that it would be visible? Or where do you put yours?
    What do you guys/gals have on your loaders out there?
    Any suggestions??


    Haha they say pictures get people attention!

    Thx Nick

    Put it up on top, you wont have any problems. If you are that worried you can always put some surface mount LED's lower facing the rear/front/sides whatever.

    Either on top or get some interior lights. I don't see any problem what so ever with it on the top.

    i have put both mini's and full size edge bars on cabs like that and they look great

    also you can do a set of micro edge

    or the state of CT way get 2 whelen 1200 and mount them on pipe mounted to side of the cab

    Wow kitnimcc, I thought i was the only one who noticed the stupid way CT mounts there expensive lights. But at least they get noticed. Another great idea i only see in Connecticut is having state cops stand by while they cut the grass on the highways.

    I'v got northstar saftey building me a custom bar for my payloader. Its going to be pretty sweet, ambers on the back for a directional stick, work lights in in the rear, side alley lights on each side, amber corner take downs. all kinds of other cool stuff hes making it do. I cant wait to get it! So in my mind,.no its not ridiculous!

    on top should be fine but I would just stick with a basic two or three rotating lightbar. As much as I like the look of low pro and LED stuff its really not worth the money......a simple rotator is very effective on that type of equipment IMO, but hey what do I know, Im the idiot thats waiting to place his order for new code 3 led lightbar for my truck for over 2g's and the worst part is I already have one up there I just dont like it lol
