I recently joined the local VFD and was looking to get some lights and want some opinions. I either want this http://micromanindustries.com/store.html?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=5&category_id=2 I was planing on getting 2 of those and 4 of the 4" ones for my grill and the flasher.


I was also thinking about getting this but not getting any grill lights http://www.*****************.com/collections/interior-lightbars/products/svp-phantom-split

In yalls opinion which would be a better buy? It would be goin in a 2000 GMC Sierra. The Phantom ends up cost a little more than the other set up.

I have 5 Microman lightbars. They are excellent for mounting on/behind a vertical surface. They put out superb brightness.

That said, I don't think I'd try to install a Microman bar in a front window. You would have to fabricate mounts and, more importantly, a flashback shield as the Microman bars do not have these (to my knowledge). The Phantom split will have flashback panels and mounting brackets for your application. As much as I like the Microman products, in this case, I'd recommend the split Phantom.
