    Added some strobes and up dated the plow lighting.
    A lot of you guys made comments about the standard Arctic lights so I up grade my guys new plow to the Arctic optional lights.
    A little lower profile, takes a 9003 style headlight bulb.
    Brightness seems the same, but pattern is a much wider spread of light.
    I also installed some strobe lights for him also.
    Cab clearance LED lights that are running marker light as well as strobe.
    Each cab strobe has 51 LED's in them for a total of 255 LED's flashing away.
    There are a ton of different patterns to choose from.
    I also cut some strobes on the side and back for rear angle.

    Here are some pictures of the plow lights.

    Yes, the cab clearance lights are Atomic LED lights.
    They are much brighter in person then they seem in any video that I took.
    In running light mode the blow away what the factory light was ( at least 3 times brighter ).
    I am impressed enough that I am going to put a set on my personal truck and a set on the company work truck.
    This was an install I did for a customer on his truck.

    why are they so much though. it seems a little steep for something you can do yourself. however i like being able to leave the light and strobes on at the same time.

    What will 5 strobes and 5 amber cab lights cost ? ( $150.00 ? )
    Then you may not be happy with the results.
    I know these have 51 LED's per lights, can be viewed from 360 degrees, and come with a Whalen flasher which has about 50 different patterns.
    They are very quality made and $225.00 doesn't seem bad to me.

    as long as you add the relay to turn OFF the parking light section of the Atomics they arent too bad...

    but if you leave them in stock form where the parking section is ON during strobe operation if the trucks lights are ON they suck.....you need to disable the parking lights inside them via a relay to make them effective IMO.

    the relay will only disable the parking light section when you activate the strobe section if wired correctly.
