    Hasn't really snowed yet, and I got bored so I re-did all the lighting on my truck. I got everything from Strobes N More, except the light bar which was the only thing I left on the truck.

    Here it is:

    I'll add a better one from during the day or at dusk.

    So the setup is:
    Buyers mini light bar (re-labeled Axiatech Falcon)
    StrobesNMore House brand 60W Hide-Away strobe kit (re-labeled Nova)
    StrobesNMore House Brand E6 split amber/white LEDs in the grill
    Whelen LIN3s on the back rack

    And just as a reference, this is what the truck used to have:

    The Buyers light bar and just some chap-o Ebay LEDs in the grill with a Sho-Me flasher. They actually held up well and worked til I took them out. Not bad for $20, but not as good as what I've got now!

    New Video looks much much better about the only thing I would do is add some kinda of side lighting maybe the white/ amber grill lights to the headache rack something flush mount that wont reflect in the mirrors. I did pretty much the same design you did and added white / amber lights to my running boards

    If you were in the fire dept and those were blue instead of amber, you would awarded the Wacker of the year award. Lol

    I hate mine. Its had moisture in it for a while now. I'd like to get a new one next year maybe.

    I had actually thought about putting the Whelen LIN3s on the side like right on the back rack tool box brackets on the side, but given the really wide spread patter of light on the LIN3s, I thought that they would be distracting (or blinding) when I looked in the sideview mirrors. I do agree thought it does need some side warning, just havent figured out a good way to do it yet!
     
  13. Look in to the e series from strobesandmore they have a very nice punch to them. I have the 6 on the side of my rack in spilt amber clear and people love them. Now I just need to get some more.

    Those lights will give someone a seizure. But they do look good.
