    i would assume that you could do that. which lights do you have the intensefire or the "old style" i would say as long as theyre not a sealed beam headlight you should be fine. i've never seen it done but i bet it would look pretty cool. good luck with it

    i think those sealed beams go for around 25-65 a piece depending on the brand. i was thinking of doing the same thing but i didnt want to be drilling into the sealed beams. im pretty sure it will work just you will have to redo it if the light goes out. also i might put some silicone or something around the strobe just make sure it water tight.
    good luck

    What kind of money do you usually spend on lights for the truck? Just ballpark?

    Can spend anywhere from $80 for a cheap strobe to several thousands on LEDs.....right now I have $450 invested in mine, 6 strobe hide-aways & LED dash light....

    its my first ruck so im kinda going all out right now im around 2050 and im done except for 2 back up lights so arond 2150 i figure.

    in my old dodge 1500 that i used for light landscape work just corner strobes around 400 in that one

    and my jeep that i used to use for traffic work i had about a 1500 package in that(corner strobes, whelen slimlighter superled above rear view and a phantom underocver full bar in the back window)

    i dont really hesitate on the money becasue i use for many uses (plowing, towing, landscape, and also as a police explorer)

    mountign in the older hgeadlights require you to mount the strobe in the turn signal portion of the headlamp...not sure of location but if you get me some pics of the lights i can tell you where to drill..

    you can't drill into a glass headlight..

    6 outlet kits range from 250-325 on average
