    hey guys i've been around the plowing scene a little bit now and was looking to invest some more money. Does anyone know a reasonably priced set of strobe lights? How easy are they to install and does anyone know of any laws in PA about strobes in south eastern Pa? I've seen others with them but i ant to do it right and stay legal. thanks for the input.

    AWdirect is the best place on the net IMO. You should have no problems using them during a storm or while you are plowing, just don't be dumb and run them in the middle of the day going to work and you'll be fine.

    Do a search for post by flykelley, I did them in my 05 chevy with pictures. They are not real hard to do, but they take some time to run all the wires and keeping them neat and clean. I like whelen power packs but most are good to use. On whelens you must run the power feed and the ground all the way to the battery or it will not work. I know because didn't work and after 3 calls to whelen tech support we got it right.

    Where not to mount

    If your plowing or road service work there fine. If you put them in your brake light and they blink red your gonna get a ticket. There is a local truck outfitter in my area that had some free work he had to fix due to the fact that he installed a bunch of "pre wired " strobes on some tow trucks and construction vehicles. Your only allowed to use red if your law enforcement, fire fighter ( not volentire ) or ambulance in my area. A few people got it some trouble with tickets and DOT. Just what I've been told by the outfitter who had to do the work again.:nono:
