    You know a good alternative to buying lights?

    Alternate between left and right turn signals

    Don't forget turning your high beams on and off. For added effect, you can pump your brakes.
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Or maybe a big spotlight with a red lense you can wave through your windshield while driving...

    Don't forget the car alarm to serve as a siren

    Default lights

    From what i've read, unlike most people i live in a different area, i live in a resort town and in the summer our little 2000 person town turns into a 20000 person city, when people are trying to take a leisurly ride through the ADK park going 5 mph and feeding deer, the lightbar can make quite a difference, not nessisarily making the trip any faster but when people are running across the street to feed a deer if they can see you comming it can help quite a bit.

    The only real reason i went from a dash light to a full size lightbar was becasue i got it 2nd hand for 80 dollars, it was 1400 new so i figured it was worth the investment. also it looks nice on my truck

    Either way where i live i respond to the scene quite often to for EMS calls and MVA's becasue its much closer than the fire hall

    ((((SARCASM))))Also this summer i bought a moped, a 50 cc honda spree, i bought a whelen edge 9000 with wig wags head / taillight strobes a siren with three 200 watt speakers and a 65" direction bar in the back..... it REALLY makes a difference going on the 55 mph roads with its 22 MPH top speed! ((((SARCASM))))

    You know, it's bad enough that Shadowk has spammed about 5 different threads with his cheap plug, but now we have Dave here spamming against him. Guys, read the TERMS OF SERVICE. If you want to advertise your product, BUY some ad space from firehouse. I come to the forums to read threads, NOT ADVERTISEMENTS.

    Did you read the terms of service? Didnt think so. And FTR, whether it's your first time spamming or your hundreth, it's still spam. And no, I wont relax. There are too many idiots like you that come on here and try to clog up the threads with crap like this. And when they are called on it, things like "Are you a moderator?" or "Take a chill pill and relax" are said by the offenders.

    You knew the terms of use. Just because it was the first time doesnt mean that it wasnt wrong. Just man up, admit you were wrong, delete the post, and everyone will forget about it.
