    If you are putting one on a pickup truck Pro-Tech makes a really nice rack with places for lights and flags and a nice sign on top. Most people in cars or vans end up building theirs and I dont know anyone that builds them as I run all Pickups in my Fleet.

    What are you looking for in the way of equipment?
    also if you will be running NY state your light bar needs to be 47" though I got away with two 18" mounted on the topper. I was never stopped.
    stay away from strobes that make a of QRM (radio noise) and you can't hear when you get ahead of the load a mile or so, when you run a high pole.

    I am looking for a rack that will hold 1 red flag on each side, you can mount a light bar on and hold a oversize sign that you can flip up and down. That will go on Chevy trucks and suburbans

    I custom built all the racks and controls in the cab. I like to make things to fit my needs, if you can weld and do electric work thats the way to go, then buy and paint a sign to your areas requirment and youre golden. Mine fold flat when not in use.
