    One of the Towns Dump trucks (GMC 6500?) has LED lights in the body. Whenever the driver hits the brakes the lights flash real quick then come on steady. It has the same effect on turn signals. I have searched all over and can't find out who makes these lights. I would like to find a set of 6 1/2 ovals for my enclosed trailer.

    You guys go it, to get those exact size, you need to order Whelen 500 Series Brake/Tail/Turn lights.

    I dont believe so, the 5G that I gave a link for is the 6 1/2" size the member is looking for.
    IIRC, the 500 Series is what I have installed in my lightbar for btt

    Question about the lightheads

    I am looking to get these type of light heads for my truck and i was just wondering if you wire them to your brake and turn signals? Or is it more complicated than that? THanks

    These wire in like regular brake and tail lights, but with an extra wire or two for changing settings on them.
