    I'd put it under one of the seats.

    I usually put them under the back seat if its an ext cab, otherwise on Regular cabs I mount them behind the seat on thecab itself.

    just put it on a metal plate and put it under the seat, it doesn't really have to be secured to the floor at all...what you could do is put velcro on the back of the metal sheet and stick it to the carpet that way (what all my dads company trucks have)

    Yeah, get it under the seat or on the back of the cab wall, but make sure it's secure, because you don't want it to go all over the place while you're out, and you don't want to get it wet with all the snow you track in.

    I put all of my power supply units in my tool box. Strobes, Leds, Head light flasher. All of it is on a tray in the tool box. I have never mounted a Strobe supply unit to metal ' until I put it in the tool box' nothing ever happened to it before then.

    You have headlight flashers? Those are illegal here, except police, fire, ambulance, airport, ect...

    I used to have them in 3 different trucks, but I hate them. I stick with hide-a-ways now.
