    Ok so just broke down and bought a 4way 60watt strobe light kit for my truck. Was wondering how hard it is to install these and if anyone knew some pointers or things to make sure I do. I was going to have the place install them but refused to pay $385 for them to install the lights. I managed to install my hole plow setup with no issues so was hoping this wouldnt be any harder. Also what lights do you all usually put them in?

    If you installed your entire plow set up, you'll have no trouble installing these.

    Get yourself a 1" hole saw (couple bucks at a Home Depot), run your wiring, mount your box in a central location (I usually mount them under the rear seat) and connect everything.

    Use the 1" hole saw to slowly drill a hole in your light housings and then insert your strobe and connect the wiring.

    I usually put them in the front turn signals and reverse lights.

    Do some reading around and you'll find all kinds of creative places people have mounted them.

    Not sure on installing tips, my uncle installed mine for me. I have a 04 Silverado and I put mine in the running lights in the front and in the reverse lights.

    Well installed them last night didnt go bad at all. Hope its ok but I put the control box under the dash didnt feel like putting it behind seat. And put the front strobes in the daytime running light spot since they were burnt out anyway. and put the rears in the reverse light. Can defently say im happy with saving the $385 and happy with the product they are bright and should do the job now lets just hope they last awhile

    I bought them from a local shop. Strobe kit without extra wire was $160.00 everything I needed to install with extra wire, etc. was $201.00 out the door
