Give us a quick review on the LED spotlight! Been looking to hear how Officers like them vs the old halogens.


Oh, and very sharp light set up! I like it!

well it has its ups and downs... its bright! bottom line.. but it depends on what ya want really. It shoots WAY out there! It hits a good beam on a building at like 100 yards which is awesome and it blinds the piss out of drivers on traffic stops. Down fall is its just a straight beam, doesnt have any flood light to it which kindoff sucks on traffic stops and also road blocks for us. It really is a 50/50 thing whether or not you would like it or not..


I took a video of me shinning a vehicle and some buildings with it and I will work on that video for you to post on here... may take a couple days. I would do it now but a storm is about to hit and im at the fire station working so i figure i will be busy on alarm runs.

Thats not my name.. That is the Boss Mans name (the Sheriff). Most Sheriffs in Mississippi put their names on the patrol cars.

Not much for SOS but this car actually turned out great with it!


I would say install a push bumper. They can come in quite handy at times.

Very nice. Can you put a pic of the console. I would add a Headlight flasher to it. I think its very important for oncoming traffic.

Yes, but that is the point of the light. They come in different light patterns. I have a set of the 12 LED fog lights and HOLY CRAP! You could use them as spot lights on traffic stops. Absolutely blinding!

you dont want to see the console.. lol its just a stack rack. I left whatever was inside in there. A radio, SW300 switchbox, and a PA300 siren.


O and yes it does have a HLF.. forgot to put that in the description.

We've been installing them on every Law Enforcement vehicle that comes through our shop, and everyone has raved about them thus far (especially when coupled with the Noptic spotlight-mounted infrared camera system). :D

Our PD has a few cars with the LED and the rest are normal halogen. I've noticed 2 mentalities towards them:


1.) THAT THING IS AWESOME!


2.) The only thing I notice is it's a 'whiter' light which is nice, no real difference otherwise.


That being said, there is never any negative feedback about them. :)

It looks great. Just please get someone to loom those wires behind the grille. Thats a fire waiting to happen.

yea a deputy put those in while I was doing the rear deck and didnt sync them up so had to redo and while installing my shift started and got a call to a 2 vehicle MVA with Injuries and possibly both drivers being intoxicated so I was throwing crap all over and got to pull her out and run code right off... I pulled up and my buddies with the FD turned and looked at my car and said... :shock: ... then I said :cool: ... haha

2 questions:


Is there a video I missed?


Are the interior bars pretty much just several GHOST heads in one 'package'? That's just how it struck me when looking at the pics.

The only thing I would do is add some SOS Universal Undercovers in the brake lights to give you some red to the rear and maybe some rear side coverage.

i thought about it... I will probably end up adding a Pushbar, a set of LED Mini3s on the side of it, and put a Mini3 in my bottom corner on my side rear doors and maybe the LEDs in the tailights. Those Intersector Mirror LEDs do enough though! :eek:

No video yet... I have it recorded just got to edit it. I have front, side and rear along with video of the LED spotlight and TD bar so I am going to toss it into one video.


And no the interior bars are like have a Pinnacle lightbar inside your vehicle. It uses sound off's "fusion technology" in the heads which is a mix of a TIR and a LIN in one head which makes for an AWESOME light output head on and off axis! :D

So the warning lights are worth more than the car?
