    You could get some ground effect lighting and put it just under the lip of the cab unless you have running boards then just put them between the running board and body. Put flashers on it and go from there!

    There's also some rims you can get that have lights on the rims and they light up pretty cool when your running down the road!

    This for a plow truck right? Not a fire truck or Police command center? Exactely how many warning lights do you need? Youre pushing snow not saving the world. I have been plowing for ages and it drives me nuts when I'm out plowing with the "disco fever" trucks. LEDS IMO are the best things to come along to plow drivers because of the brightness and limited flashback off the plow or snow. A couple of well placed TIR3's or similar willl be plenty. I'm counting 16 light heads on your truck and you want more? Keep the money in your pocket.

    More lights= more eyes on your truck = mor accidents.

    I can't even count how many timed I have almost been hit work as a firefighter on the road or side of the road. Pay attention to the road not the lights.
    And please move over for your emergency responders.

    i have 4 corner lights and an amber on top./. Perfect set up. I never run them all at the same time. Different situations when I run them. If i am pulling out of a drive or from behind a builiding I run the rears and the amber. or if I am always going forward cleaning up lanes I just run the amber on top so everyone sees it above the other cars. You dont need that many lights. That is just a waste of money.
