New Guy,Looking for strobe ideas

    Guys,

    New to posting, been lurking around for a year or two... The truck is a 07' tuned 6.0L 2500 1LT reg cab Chevy truck. Cranked front bars, HID headlights. BOSS Pro-v 9'2" plow. 1300lb behind axle ballast.

    I need lighting help. I got a free halogen light, that continues to blow my 20amp fuses. So I've been looking around at a strobe setup but have no idea what fits, what kit, where to mount... You get the idea. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Is it possible to turn the clearance lights into park of the strobe setup? also the rear third brake light bed lights?

    Thanks guys

    many people have used amber or clear vertex led's in the cargo lights in the 3rd brake light... pretty slick and effective up there...the clearance markers in the front i hae only seen one or two posts here about people puttin LED strobes in the center section i'll look around for the thread..

    I have an 07 NBS 2500HD and I have 2 LIN3 leds in the grill 2 vertex amber in reverse lights, and just added 2 clear vertex in the cargo lights. It works for me. Seeing as I lost a magnetic mount off my roof last year.

    Has anyone used the Hid-a-LED? I like the idea, i just dont like the idea of them all flashing the same pattern. The video I watched and what I've read said them will sync with each other up to 20 lights. I like the strobe kit look of the alternating lights side to side patterns. Is it possible with the Hid-a-LED?

    Thanks guys for the replies and help

    I guess if I was going to run 8 total lights, a set in the headlight area, clearance/roof lights, cargo lights, and taillights. I could split the headlights and taillights up into one set as while driving I would not want them running as it might be hard to see turn signals for some. Could them have the clearance/roof lights and cargo lights running on there own?

    That make any sense?

    Thanks again

    just a quick question ... are you asking about a LED hideaway kit? or something more along the lines of a vertex LED head ?

    I think LED is the way to go in the cargo and clearance lights. I have no idea if there is enough room to install a strobe in those two areas?

    the first pic is the lighthead from the whelen kit and the other is a vertex if you want low profile ie.. cargo light vertex's r the way to go ... good light output and you can wire every single head to perform as you want ...

    Vertex all around? or Hid-a-ways in the head and taillights? and vertex up top?

    Thanks
