    Hi my name is Heath
    I have question for you guys. I am going to put LED Hide-A-Ways in my F150. I have it narrowed down to 2 brands and models.
    I would like your input on your likes/dislikes,ease of install, and brightness. Most of the videos I have seen probable don't do these light justice.

    The two that I have narrowed it down to are:
    Sound Off Universal Undercover
    Whelen Vertex

    Any input would be helpful.

    I do installs on Law Enforcement vehicles and am very partial to Whelen products. However I just installed the SoundOff hideaways in my new car and love them. The Whelen LED's are easier to wire and understand if your not familiar with setting the patterns and sync.

    Both are very good lights but stay away from the split colors. You lose have the light output with splits and during the daytime the light output is disappointing.

    That's why you have more than one light :D
    Dash light
    Grille lights
    Mini light bar
    And a really loud siren w/ wail, yelp, hyper yelp, and horn.

    I just finished installing Whelen Vertexs in my truck and I'm very happy with them.
