    hi guys,
    i looked through some of the video's of strobes and want to know if it's possible to get my bobcat lights (rear mostly) to strobe and how to do it?
    thanks,

    It is possible to do so. I would just worrie about the heat those bulbs put out melting your lenses. I would go with a 60 watt and just get 2 bulbs, Whelen makes a 20watt, but I don't think they would be very noticable. Go to lshlights.net or sirennet.com and build a set for what you need. If you do a search you can find some threads where some guys have posted how to install them in trucks, and it would be the same for your skid.

    Hey I never thought of the tir3s, good thinking. Or you might try the linear leds from whelen, same price as the tir3 around 50 bucks. Both are super bright leds and affrodable too.

    Look on my website, you can see some bobcats and one backhoe that I have put TIR3s and LIN3s on.

    I've seen someone with flashers in the white rear lights. maybe some kit sold from bobcat, or just wired in flashers.
