    I posted this here rather than in the Strobe Lighting section because the question is kinda brand-specific. I know JustinD and some other members have mentioned thinking about putting hideaway strobe tubes in the cargo light on a Chevy, but I haven't found any posts yet where somebody actually did it.
    I figured I'd ask here first, and save myself some time with taking mine apart to look inside it. Is there room in there for the stock bulb and a strobe tube, without melting anything?

    I have strobes in my cargo light, but had to remove standard light.

    I had the vortex LED's in my cargo lights, worked great and did not have to remove the factory bulbs.

    Yeah, I know LEDs are big space-savers vs. the strobe tubes; just looking at options for the parts I already have on-hand.

    Maybe I'll just stuff the big ol' helical tubes in places where they'll fit without problems with heat, etc., and go with little sneaky LEDs in smaller spots, later on. :D
