    I was just curious if anyone had any type of strobe or flashers that are mounted underneath the vehicle pointing straight down towards the ground. If so how well does it work, brightness, etc. Thinking of doing something with my semi and maybe plow truck. I do construction during the summer and use the lights pretty often. Just wanting to do something different but not spend a fortune.

    Not me, but interesting idea. Do you think the road grime would cover up the strobe? It would work better at night and in the snow with reflection. I think I might just put more strobes and lights around the truck where they are visible.

    JMO but for snow removal rotators as hight as possible is the best. A dual rotator up high or 2 single gumdrops mounted high are great on vis and pretty cheap and dont tend to drive you nuts in a heavy snow. A set of LED flashers in facing back as high as possible would probably a good idea also for general construction to compliment your singl or dual rotators if you want a bit more flash and dont mind spending the extra green.

    Thanks guys for the replies.

    I already have an LED Mini bar, I was thinking of adding hideaway or something to that effect. I was just considering adding one or two strobe headsunderneath like they do with pace cars. This wouldn't be primary lights, but could have em switched to only use when I want it to look "different"
