    I know this sounds dumb .. but a few months ago i was told by i guy who installs emergency lights on cop cars ... that they actually make a L.E.D. module that snaps into your head light housing like corner strobes ...... just curious is this FACT or FICTION ??? ...

    There are a few out there, but they are not nearly as effective as the strobes are yet. Give it some time & they will improve.

    These devices are available but they are applications-specific. Only the Ford Crown Victoria is on the market today since it comprises >80% of police vehicles. These devices replace the OEM turn signal bulb. They are amazingly effective (made by Whelen).

    The reflector design and vehicle electronics are what limit the ability to transfer a Crown Vic unit into any other vehicle. A more universal solution that is truly effective may be many years away.

    FWIW Check your state laws before installing any headlight strobes- they are illegal in many states unless the vehicle is emergency response. (And no, tow trucks, landscapers and snow plows are not yet considered emergancy response...:jester: )
