    Crew cab chevy..

    Where in the world did you mount the power supply?

    I have 15 ft cables and that's not long enough to mount it behind the back seat.

    All I had was 15' cables and I was able to mount my pwr supply behind the back seat drv side with only having to splice the cable that connected to the front pass. strobe. If you go from your drv side front strobe straight through the fire wall down the kick panel, under the thresh hold of both doors and up behind the rear seat you should have enough cable left over to use to splice onto the shorter cable. Just snip it and match the colors back up.

    I install mine under the rear seat. I cut the carpet and drilled a inch hole in the floor. I used wire loom the whole length of the cable and silconed around the one inch hole. Send me a email and I will email you some pictures. flykelley930@mac.com
    Put strobes in the subject line.

    Good Luck Mike

    I came right through the fresh air vent, no need to drill through any metal on the cab. It's kind of tricky to do but it can be done, if you want details let me know.

    I got them working.

    Thanks for all the help.

    20' cables would have been easier.

    Just in case anyone needs longer cables in the future
    www.strobenmore.com has cables up to 25 feet and also sells bulk cable to make your own however long you need.Prices on the cables are pretty reasonable.
