    Got around to install strobes on my truck. The holes where cut in the Utility Bed and the light where install in the rear. Angled the lights to match the angle of the ladder racks on the truck.
    The lights in the front where a standard Chevy install

    Welded a bracket on the slide rails of the drivers seat for the power supply. This bracket hold the power supply about 2 inches off the rubber mat

    Looks good, nice pictures. Personally I would of gone with a pair of round strobes to match the STT, and backup lights. Any reason you went with that particular style?

    I looked at the round, would have not been able to stack it on top of other two lights because of the ladder racks. Since I was going to offset the light I went with oval. Was planning on using oval with grommet type mounting, but changed to the flange mounting. Sometimes I put a lot of material on the ladder racks and wanted to keep the hole small since it is where the ladder racks mount to the utility bed.

    Finished my install a while back, finally got around to taking some pictures. Used the Aux. Lamp switch in the dash to supply power. This will act as a master switch turning everything on or off. Put three more switches in, see picture. The one on the left is for the front strobes, the one on the right is the back strobes, the middle switch is for the low power mode. The other picture is of the wiring at the box under the drivers seat. :drinkup::drinkup:

    if it was possible the round would have looked best....the linear strobes on the angle like that, however, look just as good
