    f250man.... Do you have any plans? Like blueprints? Oh and how does it mount just bolted to the bed or to the cab? How do those spot's help for backing up? I know my dad's 1500 gmc has horrible back up lights and i wanted to do something either on the rack or under the bumper.

    personal preference i like the leds becasue they use less power the bar has more of a "low profile" look and they're extremely bright

    Yeah that was my thinking too. Do the LED's make that whining noise?

    no noise at all the. even the flashers(takedowns/alleys) dont make any noticeable noice
    the hideaways still make the annoying clicking noise so you just turn the radio up a little bit lol

    id say the leds will do that for you
    supposed to the most efficient thing 100,000 hours burn time or something like that plus less strain on the trucks electrical system
