    It works....... I have operated vehicles with Racks and Bed Covers, the Cover will work. We had Whelen Edge Bars mounted on the Racks, and they worked out OK, plenty of Light, no problems.......

      I was issued a light when I became an officer in my volly dept. I have had it behind the back seat in two pickups now. Think I used once on a mutual aid call other than that it has never scratched the paint once.

        I am currently running into the same problem. I was wonderring about getting suction cups to replace the magnets but I am having trouble finding the right kind. Does anyone have any ideas of where to look?

          Nope.........

          Suction Cups don't have the "Withstand all Hazards" holding power of Magnets. They aren't bad for small lightweight stuff on the INside of a vehicle, but I wouldn't trust them OUTside........

          Note to the "Wacker Bashers"..... I'm also looking for something to hold a Mini Bar on top of my (Work) Pickup. Magnets that are on the Bar are too good, and the light is hard to get on and off....... Being in the Asphalt Construction business, I think my need for a YELLOW lightbar is kinds obvious......

            I've seen some pretty extensive (and expensive) lighting systems on construction/utility vehicles. Do they really need all those lights?
            Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                Uh Huh............

                As I've pointed out many times, the Only difference between a Fire/Rescue operation and a Highway Maintenence operation is the number of EMT's on site...... Otherwise we are the same, Bunch of Trucks, Lots of flashing lights, People working in the roadway, Idiots tring to hit us.........
