    Whelen vertex LED is a good choice, I believe those will run you about 70$ per LED.
    Headlights and tail lights are my preference, however you can install them virtually anywhere, (exterior wheel well on duallys, cargo light, reverse lights, fog lights, turn signals, tailgate, theist goes on!)
    Depending on your budget, a nice mini light bar on top is a good choice too.

    Im not arguing with you (obviously you know what you are talking about) I just want to know how they are brighter? Is it a newer Gen LED?

    They are the newer version and use a newer LED diode that is brighter.

    thanks for the info. Just wondering what color strobes to use ? in the reverse lights(yellow) ?White in the brake lights ? I don't know what color lense i have in the front of the truck for turn signals right at the moment. I can't afford the whelen at 70.00 each.

    I would go Yellow All around (reverse and front blinkers) It is more noticeable than white.

    I personally think if you're going to spend the time putting hideaways in you should get decent lights. Most people will tell you that you get what you pay for.

    I agree. My friend bought a Chinese kit. On the 3rd storm we replaced power supply with Whelen. And as each bulb blew, we also replaced with Whelen.
