    I know a couple guy here have put hideaway strobes in their head/tail lights. I heard that the headlight housings have two layers on the bottom and guys are using a 1.5" hole saw to go through the outer housing, and then the 1" hole to go inside the actual headlamp...

    Can anybody verify one way or another? Is this just on the headlight or is it the same with the tail lights?

    Put them in the amber turn signals. and in the front put them where the headlight raps around to the fender. So it would be strobe low beam then high beam all up top in the head light. Make sence? Thats where I had mine. Plus I see your on a fire dept., so the front ones will work great for when you are coming to a intersection and need the traffic clearing. You wont need the 1.5 hole saw bit, then the 1 inch one if you put then where I did in the front.

    Let me rephrase this...

    Does anybody know if the headlights (upper or lower module) and tail lights have an inner and outer housing?

    Oh yeah - I'm on a FD but you won't see me busting any intersections in my POV. Got clears going in all four corners - undetermined position up front, and reverse lights in the rear.

    Hi Q
    As I posted before, the headlight housing is a double layer. the tail light housing is a single layer. YES you will need to drill a larger hole in the headlight housing first, then a one inch hole for the strobe tube. Send me a email flykelley930@aol.com put strobes in the subject line and I will email you pictures of my strobe install on my 05 2500 HD.

    Regards Mike
