    So guys I had to do it, I bought the led cab lights with the whelen flasher and put them in my truck the other night. All I have to say is they are pretty sweet nice and bright at night and definately an attention grabber. So here are some pics of the install. And a quick video.

    On my truck I had to switch power and ground going to the light heads for the leds to work . It mentions it in the instructions.

    Subscribing. Had my eye on a set of those. Have to wait til the Dodge ones come out in March, but that gives me time to make my decision. x2 on the daytime vid, curious about that myself. Pretty cool idea though!

    Quick question, looking at the installation directions. Why are lights 3 and 5 hooked to the same trigger out of the flasher unit? Just seems like you would have the two outer or two inner light hooked to the same trigger from the flasher.

    There are five lights and only four outputs on the Whelen flasher.

    I just think the the flash pattern would look funny having 3&5 hooked together. Why not like 1&5 or 2&4?

    Just curious if there is a reason behind 3&5..

    I will get a video up today i swear I will do it on lunch . Last night had some one drive it down the street with them on and they are seriously bright . like it almost looked like I had a lighbar on . as far as the flasher hookup for 3 and 5 idn why they did it. kinda wish it was a 5 channel flasher and they had a scan pattern like night rider.

    Heres a day video the sun was on the truck at the time . Its hard to tell thru a cell phone video but they are very noticable during daylight.

    I think I like it! I'll definitely be checking those out when they come out with the Dodge version!

    They are a lot brighter as straight clearance lights I've noticed. On the highway they really illuminate the overhead signs as your approaching them. The profile projection of light is the biggest noticeable difference IMHO.

    I think they are trying to get the Chevy/Dodge ones out next month. Then more neat things to come from what I here.

    I think you could use a second Whelen flasher and sync them together. Then you would have an extra three outputs.
