    I put strobes on my backrack. If youre talking about hide aways, the size of the headlights will be more than accommodating lol

    I'm looking to add strobe capability using my existing clearance lights (2011 F250 SD 6.7). Any suggestions?

    replace the bulbs with LED's, wire up an LED Flasher from ShoMe (or whatever your choice) and you have strobe clearance lights.

    trickier, harder..i used a 2x4 to guide my 1in hole saw thru the factory light bulb socket. Extra set of hands need to hold light from moving or some way to clamp it down

    yes this also can be done, I'm sorry i should have said that too. I always add aftermarket backs lights, the factory ones just don't do it for me. Years ago i melted mine and learned a lesson on how the power packs work....

    So if you already put them in the tail lights, would it be ok to just silicone that hole up and drill a second one in the reverse light. Or should I just buy new tail lights and do it. Also can this be done with tubes or does it have to be LEDs?

    "Or should I just buy new tail lights and do it"

    cheaper to leave in the old ones and just buy new bulbs if u are thinking that way

    I don't need new bulbs, I already drilled holes in my brake lights And I wanna switch them to the reverse lights. I just want to know if I should buy new tailights or if it's okay to just silicone those holes up and drill new ones in the reverse lights or should I just buy new tailights which I think are like 40$ a piece.

    you mount from the outside toward the tailgate...you clearance the body a little for the wires if you have to....index the strobe tube to not hit the factory light..

    sorry no pics....but its not hard to figure out
