    f350dieselemt,
    What are you getting for a lightbar? I currently have 2 Whelen Mini Edge 4 strobe units. I was thinking about upgrading to led's, but maybe when I get a new truck. I like the fact that they are clear when they are off

    Avalanche,
    How many strobe heads and halogen heads do you have? Do you run white filters?

    f350dieselemt thanks I think :D I plan to get more LEDs for my grill and other places. What kind of bar are you getting? Strobes, Halogen or LEDs?

    Avalanche,
    Has any law enforcement officer said anything to you about your white lens? When I had my Federal Signal Mini Jet (2 halogen rotator) I had clear in the middle. I got stopped by a State Trooper and he told me that the white in the middle was not legal for a plow/utility vehicle. I did not get a ticket, just a verbal warning and 2 hours later I had a full amber bar. I just thought I would let you know

    He's full of sh*t. I got pulled over last year before I had my bar for the hide-a-way strobes because the taillights flashed red. He told me you could only use amber and clear. I looked it up and it said you can't use blue, but pretty much anything else. If you use red they pull you over I stopped arguing with them and gave up. A guy around me even uses green and amber!

    In the lower section I have clear intersecting sweep lights in the cornors that are very bright. I have never had any cops tell me that I couldnt have them.
    Lots of guys around here use hide away strobe and flash red and clear and cops dont seem to mind.

    F350,
    Do you use your truck for both repsonding fire calls and plowing? I am thinking about joining our fire department and I was wondering if I should get another truck if I did.
