    Ok. What do you guys think would be best for my truck. Should i go with hide aways, beacons on the back rack, a regular light bar, or a combination?

    personally i like Whelen led lightheads such as the TIR's or LIN's. Both are very bright and are convenient to install almost anywhere. I would put 2 on the back of your back rack, and 2 in your grill. Heres how i did mine last year. they are LIN3's and they are everything i wanted them to be. http://www.plowsite.com/showpost.php?p=400754&postcount=35

    What is your application? Plowing parking lots? City streets? Driveways? Having an idea what you'll be doing helps tailor what would best be suited for your truck.

    How about TIR 3's on the Back Rack... 2 sets on the front, 3 on the rear, one each side, 2 high on the grill so you can see them over your blade.
    All the one's on your back rack FLUSH MOUNT!

    it all depends what you want/like... i started with a dual halogen rotator, then to a mini edge and hideaways, now im going to two strobe beacons mounted on my bacrack... an led mini lightbar would be nice,,,

    I am with Boss. Use Led lightheads. I had bad luck with my strobes, but i think it was the brand. You can even get hide-a-way leds, with inline power supply.

    Boss did you put led's in your Grill? Which ones did you use? I am planning on using 1 or 2 Whelen light strips on my back rack, and throwing some Led's in the front Grill of my 07 NBS Silverado
