Help with a decision

I've got a 2001 GMC Sierra (the chasing truck with too many lights) I'm trying to decide on what to do. I've got a TAM85 in the back window and and edge 9M bar on the roof that has the rear set up with:

CS/Red 6over6 /Strobe/Strobe/Strobe/Strobe/Red 6over6 /CS

I'm debating on whether or not to keep the TAM85 with the bar being there or if I should sell the TAM and replace the red 6over6 heads with strobes and get a 9M6TA (Traffic Advisor Strobe Supply) and make the back of my bar the TA, and have the red 6over6 heads behind my head-rests in the back. I'm looking to see what other people think?


Here's a pic of the back. I'll try and get a video tomorrow but this is all I have for now.

I personally would keep the TA. Having a dedicated warning bar on top is great and your dedicated TA isn't mounted too much lower so it is probably still easily seen as good distances. I certainly wouldn't get rid of the TA and make the rear of the bar a strobe TA personally, but I guess that's my own opinion.

Do you have any pics or video of the setup so we can make any recommendations as to what might best benefit you if you are set on changing something?
