I recently made the purchase of a new lightbar, after a lot of research and price shopping I made the decision on the Axixtech 54" torrent. It is all amber no alley lights and no takedowns. I had the bar built to my likes. It took a little longer then expected to get the bar but Louis at Strobesnmore.com was on top of the situation any time I asked a status. He went so far as to forward me an email between him and his contact at Brooking regarding why my bar took longer to ship then normal. The bar came packaged very well. I was impressed with the packaging and layout. The mounts I used were inside the box. The light was encased in foam holders to keep it from moving around. I did the install myself. This bar is able to be powered by 1 switched on/off positive wire. I ran an 8 gauge wire fused from the dash to the lightbar harness, programmed the bar how I wanted and finished the hookup and its an awesome bar. I noticed a few things while mounting it, the bar is an aluminum housing which most people know and the lenses of course are clear. the bolts for the bottom that the mounts bolt onto are all stainless hardware. I wish they were just a hair longer but i understand why there not. It also came with mounting hardward to mount the mounts onto the truck. I know in the past with other items, not emergency equipment, alot of companies will not spend that extra dollar for better rust resistent hardware, its whatever is cheaper to get it out the door. I know alot of people are diehard whelen and code 3 and thats fine, but with the full 5 year warranty and the support from strobesnmore, I don't think that I will have a problem. I think that it well work the extra look to consider these bars.
