    We have an install scheduled tomorrow for a set of Atomic LEDs and plan to take some video of the install as well as the lights outside (if its not pouring out). We are going to try to make a simple harness from 6 wire strobe cable which I think is going to make the install much easier. I'll post some pics when completed along with the video.

    I am going to try and get the video uploaded tomorrow. We ended up booking a second install that same day so had to rush the video but it will give you a good idea of what it takes to do the install. Overall very easy if you are good with electronics and have the ability. The lights were a simple swapout and using the 6 wire cable make it go much quicker. We installed the relay so the running lights kickoff when the warning lights are needed and the customer was very pleased.

    Very nice. I want to put these on my 97' F-250. How technical do you think this will be? Considering it comes with almost everything you need I will have to relocate the holes to mount the lights but other than that it's all wiring. The truck is being repainted and in the spring anyway. I LOVE being undercover. I'm also a Firefighter and only 1 light is visible from first glance... :drinkup:

    firelwn, not sure what holes you have to relocate as the lights are a direct replacement to your factory ones. The wiring is pretty simple what takes the most time is pulling headliner down to give you access and putting it back up. The install guide is easy to understand and you will need some misc. wire, an on/off switch, and a relay if you want your factory lights to shut off when you switch on the flashing mode.

    So these light will fit the 97' year model that I have? I thought these lights were for the newer body style?
