    Before I get flamed or anything I am a volunteer fireman and I am allowed to use strobes. Anybody have a set they may want to part with? This is sort of a feeler to see if anything interesting pops up. thanks

    Maybe you like them more...but they are NOT brighter or more effective. There is a reason that most major manufacturers are moving to making LED set ups.

    Good luck finding what you want.

    I have this in the red/red combo. Bright as hell and has a ton of strobe patterns. It's in perfect condition, nothing wrong with it whatsoever. It's been sitting in a box, wrapped in bubblewrap since I moved down here to Orlando.

    I had one on the windshield above the rearview and one that stretched across the slider in the rear when I was a firefighter. I already sold one of them (it was amber/amber for the rear).

    I'd let it go for $100 - I bought it brand new for $200+.

    what color are you looking for? I have 2 blue grill leds and 2 hide away leds I need to remove from my truck.

    also, its not an opinion thing. LED is FAAAAAAR brighter than strobes. They even make light bars out of leds now. and you dont have to worry about them burning out all the time.

    What color lights do you guys run on your apparatus? I would stick with the same colors.

    Remember not to put red lights on the rear of your POV, as that will mesmerize drivers behind you. Stick with clear/amber for anything that is going to be rear-facing.

    I also agree that LED's are way brighter. The Whelen Slimlighter I have for sale, and that I linked you to, is insanely bright.
