Never liked the Mini-Vector's for some reason.

It's a nice truck, could use a couple LED's ( a dash light, grill light, etc.) in the front, IMO.

Just a question to the above - why does it need extra lighting?


Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Pennsylvania still a courtesy light state for the blue-lighters? With the mini-bar on top, you shouldn't be driving so aggressive that it won't be seen by the vehicle in front of you. If you are, then you're not being very courteous... The mini bar, along with appropriate driving techniques, is perfectly adequate to the front.


I could understand a little extra warning in the rear, but the mini-bar remains adequate for both directions.

*** UPDATE ***


We recently customized his lightbar to a LED/Haloger Mini Vector. Center fast rotator with the two outer podes being LED with 3 Solaris head in each pod. We made it so he can run all 3 pods or just the center rotator. And we also put a 1st Gen mini phantom on the lower windshield.

Looks pretty nice, who thought you could pull off a light install with just a mini bar. Looks good in my book. Cant wait to see the vids. I he wants an arrowstick for the back I have a Code 3 LED for sale. Lol :-D But nice install.

Very nice! I like to say "Less is more" in regards to blinkies on cars - don't underestimate that mini Vector, it'll do well for you.

Not a fan of the flash pattern, but I like the overall concept of the mini-vector.
