    Here are few pictures of the Soundoff Signal LED flood lights I installed on my truck. I have 2 1400 lumen LED on the back rack hooked up to the aux switch in the cab and another 2 500 lumen par 36s hooked up to the 7 pin trailer plug on the salter that turn on automatically in reverse. I also have 1 500 lumen hooked up to the salter pointing to the spinner for use in salting that is hooked up to the Truckcraft salt controller that turns on every time I turn the salter on. Also a couple of pics of the truck at Edgewater Park in Cleveland. There were some large waves icing everything along the shoreway. And also some video of our local Lighthouse that turned into an Ice House.

    I have the truckcraft aluminum insert and tailgate spreader for it. The spreader has worked out great this year. Pros are that the insert and spreader only weigh 500#s, when I raise the bed the salt or clearlane which ever one I am using slides easily to the back, it spreads a nice even large area on each pass, I can load it with 2 tons of salt, I can still see out the back of my truck, and I have the auger powers through any type clumps that may form in the salt. It only sticks out a foot of the back of the truck so you can get up close to objects and not worry about breaking anything. The Cons would be that you have to raise the bed to get material to the back every once in awhile as it will use all the material back there by the auger, but on the larger lots that I know I am going to be using a lot of material I just raise the bed up a few feet and drive the lot raised and it does the job perfectly. I thought since it was power up gravity down that it would take forever for it to drop back down, but with any type of load in there it comes down pretty fast so I am not wasting any time waiting for it to lower. It was a good buy IMO.

    I bought the insert just right inside the PA border for $3200 cash and the spreader back here on the westside of Cleveland for $3000 cash. They were both brand new, end of season and last ones they had in stock. Did not pay tax on either of them and every other dealer I spoke to were in the range of 9K to 10.5K plus tax for the exact same setup. I looked for a couple of months to get the whole package. I was going to buy the same setup the coming fall so I thought I might as well buy it now and save almost 5K and let them sit in the shop for the next 8 months. I was pretty lucky to find the deals I did, Plus having cash always helps.:nod:

    where did you get the LED floods? what did you pay for them?

    i rigged up a set of fogs I had laying around and while they help and are better then stock reverse lights, the beam is too projected, need some actual floods.

    let me know!

    I picked up the LEDs from Sirennet. I originally bought the 1000 lumen ones but they were back ordered so they upgraded me to the 1400 lumen ones which are on my back rack and will stay on there year around. Here is the link to there site and prices. They are spendypayup but they work great and have a great warranty. I used to use flood lights from the local auto store, but they are so large and bulky, plus they would not stay in place. These have stainless bolts and everything and once you mount them in a position they are not going anywhere.

    hey burkart, glad to hear everything is working out, how are those edges? do those lights come in pairs? or is it 99 for a single light off of sirennet? im tossing options around on what to put on my backrack.

    The edges are working great, once I opened up the box i figured out they sent me two edges for the drivers side by accident. I called them up and Jerre sent out the passengers side over night for me. They are wearing nice, well not wearing at all on the bottom. The lights do not come in pairs. That is the price per light as they are not cheap, but a great light non the less.

    FYI - amazon.com has a little better pricing for the lights, and free shipping too.

    Burkartsplow - how are the lights for current draw? They look like they've got great coverage. I've got to think, being LED, should be considerably less draw than a set of old KCDaylighters. :)

    amazon was sold out last I checked

    and the lights draw 3 amps a piece (1400 lumen)

    I have 2 of the 1400 lumen ones and they are great
