    2, one in the parking light and one in the signal. It was a 6 light kit and i couldn't let myself only use 4 even though i knew i should have.

    I was curious how happy you were with the brightness and available flash patterns. Does it seem like a good quality kit? I bought the exact same set for dad for Christmas and he will use them for plowing and on his pickup for Volunteer Fire Dept. How do you like them?

    So far so good. They are bright enough to get noticed for sure and the flash back is as bad as i thought it would be. Everything seems to be good quality. The wires could be a little longer but they are easy enough to extend.

    And as for the flash patterns there are more than I'll ever need, I like number 3 so thats the one I'll use. I also like being able to turn the front ones off and not the rear.

    all those white strobes on a black excursion, if you were to ever get in a traffic jam, and "accidentally" turn on your strobes, i'd think that traffic would open right up. looks like an unmarked law enforcement vehicle to me, even though a real one would probably have either blue or red lights on it depending on the state

    That's true. In my county the Sheriffs have a few black ones too.. Maybe they will think im one of them and leave me alone. lol

    Possibly,

    the ss runs unmarked black and dark blue suburbans, in southern ME (from the Bush's property in Kennybunkport) from what i've heard, if you drive a late model suburban in southern maine, you can get away with almost anything, local LEO's don't want to make the mistake of pulling over a heavily armed federal agency.

    Who makes your strobe kit, I thought 90 Watt was the max.. They look good but don't seem very bright for 120 Watt, I have a 90 Watt kit now and they seem brighter than the ones you have.

    My kit was made by Whelan.

    The control box say's 120.. They are a lot brighter in person, some of the reason is the junk camera i have. Here is what Dissociative said in another thread about these lights.


    "SHOW......thats actually a STAR box....it's not that bad really....i dunno if i believe the 120 but it should be bright as heck if it is....

    all in all for that money that is a GREAT buy.......it's not china garbage but is very much the same quality as the sho-me stuff above. "

    I can't wait. I am hoping that the storm they are talking about for Saturday morning pans out.. I can't wait to use my new blade and spreader.

    i didnt wanna be the jerk that bad mouthed your set up but i agree, they dont seem bright at all for a 120watt system. i have a 60 watt ecco system that is really bright, actually jsut as bright if not brighter then the 90 watts my plow guy was installin. either way, looks like you did a good job, they look good :drinkup:

    Now you'll have to get two more flash tubes, so the rear lights won't feel deprived. ;)
    Or are there only six outlets on the power supply?

    Thanks for mentioning that. I made a note to myself to be sure the front lights can be cut out. More wiring/switches, maybe, but easier on the eyes if the front ones get obnoxious due to bad weather conditions or whatever.

    Its no big deal. Mine are set up to run all or just rear. All you need is a 2 position toggle switch for the strobes and a button to switch the patterns
