    Very nice setup. There looks like a flash coming from under the rear bumper. Is there something there, are is that just a reflection. How much was the lightsticks in the front window. I would really like to add those to my rig. How make them?

    Thanks for the compliments. The lights in the winshield are from a company named Whacker USA. They are two sticks with four heads each. I think i paid 150 each. There are no lights by the rear bumper, only the hideaways in the tail and reverse lights.

    Thanks oasis. They strobe red and clear. They are set to flash in an X pattern (left turn right reverse then the opposite) and keep alternating like that. Makes sure the rear of the truck is never dark that way.

    just a thought red flashing lifts in ontario only legal on fire, police , and ambulance. A cambridge towing company was fined for having red strobes in taillights on a heavy wrecker. OPP suspended using them for calls for 30 days also.

    Red and blue lights to the front restricted

    (14.1) In addition to the lighting requirements in this Part, a police department vehicle may carry lamps that cast red and blue lights, but no other motor vehicle shall carry any lamp that casts red and blue lights to the front. 2007, c. 13, s. 17 (2).

    Red light in front

    (15) In addition to the lighting requirements in this Part, a vehicle described in subsection (15.1) may carry lamps that cast a red light only or such other colour of light that may, with the approval of the ministry, be designated by a by-law of the municipality in which the vehicle is operated, but no other motor vehicle shall carry any lamp that casts a red light to the front. 1998, c. 35, s. 103.

    They face the rear not the front.

    hamelfire, the plow is a curtis snow pro 3000. I have had this plow since 2003. pwerstroke6john, the lights under the doors were purchased from autolumination.com. They have six leds each and are made to fit into channels or narrow spots. hope this helps.
