    Anyone using these or looked into them?? Dealer of mine is selling these for $100 each, and says I can run these from my Ford upfitter switches. No control module, just add a small switch for I can manually change strobe pattern. If I stand correct tthere are 4 LEDs in each "pod" and each "pod" can actually run its own pattern. Get what I'm saying? Kinda like instead of only having one side of the truck flashing while the other is off. Each "pod" itself will alternate left to right, so both sides of the truck will be flashing at the same time.

    Think these might be on my list before the white stuff falls.

    Here is their link if you'd like to check it out.

    Its just my personal opinion, I would never go with any light besides whelen, they have the best product and the best warranty, and when its out of warranty and it brakes they have a set price to fix it, which is not much.

    thanks for the advice guys... I just know that they are putting quite a bit of this on emergency and city vehicles in the area.

    I have the ECCO 4 head unit and couldn't be more happy! I got mine from the local Boss stealer and paid about $160 for the amp, 4 tubes and 4 cables. It was very easy to install with good connectors and have used them for 2 year on the Jobsite(all year) and plowing with NO TROUBLES. I would recomend them to anyone. I'm not so sure whalen could so any better than working every time you flipped the switch could they?!

    Good luck and enjoy!
