    i bought my truck in july and i went to crank up my torsion bars and i see a coaxil for a cb antenna hanging down so i go behind the drivers seat take the jack storage cover off and find a 2 strobe box there and i never knew it was there i chased the wires back and found they are haning under the taillights with no bulbs so now my question is where can i get bulbs,they are a 3 pin connector and the power supply box is a fleet industries

    princess auto carries strobe bulbs sometimes. If not, there are plenty of online places.

    I wish I could get that lucky, but the idea of spending $500 on lights makes me cringe.

    I think that is known as a dutch connector. You should be able to buy the strobe heads anywhere that carries them, no matter who the manufacturer is.

    it's Deutch connector.
    $45 per head is about right.

    Every manufacturer claims you need to use their heads- always wondered about that. (Galls books mention it with each brand)
