Just got this bar in from eBay. It is in fantastic shape inside, like new. Has two 100 watt speakers (to be removed cuz this bar weighs in at 72 pounds). Lenses need to be polished, but UPS didn't break any this time.


I know there are not too many out there, so I am quite happy to have gotten one finally.


More pics to come

Here is a pic of the packaging. Very little protection offered here but it came in one piece. Plus the mounting brackets were on top of the bar, taped down.

I want to see pics of the packing and the box it was shipped in. Seriously. They must be bulletproof, since UPS usually breaks domes no matter how well they are packed. Congrats on being lucky enough to get it without anything being damaged.

i took pics for that very reason. I will post soon.


Believe it or not, the bar was basically wrapped in bubble wrap with some pallet corner protectors over the domes and a box wrapped tight around the entire bar. Given the weight I figured out of spite it would have been damaged. It's a heavy, cumbersome bar.


Miracles do happen.

I've found when I ship reallllly big bars.. ie triple threats or 96" edge plus bars that they don't get damaged.... maybe they are too big to throw very hard?!?

I added a pic of the box it was in. I know some stories of UPS drivers who stomp, kick and drop stuff on purpose because its too heavy for them to want to deal with it.


Maybe I got some extra nice drivers this time.

You are so very fortunate to


A. Have a PSE Code3 Triple Threat SD.


B. Not having something broken by UPS.


That rascal will need about 40 amps to run it properly. And people wonder why sealed beams disappeared from lightbars?

Finally it has arrived! Glad to hear that you got it in one piece and not in many pieces like so many of mine have been arriving as of late. It looks like it's missing something, though... maybe some stingers??? I wonder where you'd ever find a set of those? :twisted:


It also looks like you're running out of room to keep those bars... let me know if you want to get rid of any of your aeros!

I may give those stingers a shot. Need to see if the mounting base from the XL will work on the SD frame.
