    Recently aquired a nice Whelen 4 corner hidden strobe kit. Before I go drilling and cutting I'm interested in any feedback from those of you who have already done this installation. I have a 2001 Superduty.

    Did you use the headlights or turnsignals in front?
    Did you use the brake or reverse lights in the rear?
    Where in the housings did you mount the bulbs exactly?
    Have you had any heat related problems?

    Thanks for any input

    Hey Greg,

    Welcome to plowsite buddy, do a search under " strobe lights " this has been discussed here many times and you'll be amazed at the amount of information you'll get regarding location in Ford trucks as well as particular brands that are better vs. others.

    Best of luck with your endeavor ! :)
