    Sounds like a plan for the new guy... It depends on your budget but what SR said sounds good. Don't forget in the future you may want to add something to the side about midship!

    These strobe kits have two extra power outlets if you want to add two more.

    LED light heads are usually purchased individually, get the same brand and any number of them can be synced together.

    An alternative to the strobes are Vertex LED hide-a-ways, they are less bright, but require no power pack, and last "forever".

    If you're set on hideaways buy a 4 corner x 90 watt strobe kit and put all 4 in th rear, they're useless in the front when snowing, drove me crazy the other day so I just shut them off. Then I'd put 2 LEDS in the grille and 2 on the backrack, one on each side of the truck for side coverage.

    Personally if I was to do it all over on my truck Id'd buy a whelen led mini light bar and 2-4 led lightheads...


    If you need any help talk with George, he's awesome!
