    I know they come in Clear, Amber, and Red. Not sure on the Blue. Firefighter is red though. Unless its different where you are?
    Oh, They are called Wacker 4 Bulb LED with 19 different patterns. They are sweet. I got them through a friend who got them cheap.
    But i think you can get them on ebay.

    None of the LED's show up very bright do they? The camera didn't capture the strobe flashes very well either. It's a still camera that takes video as well, albeit not very well...

    They were some I picked up at a local lighting shop about 3 years ago, "Gen I" I think. I'd like to get a newer pair of TIR3's or similar with the Gen 3 LEDs in them.

    Not really sure why they arent showing up on the camera, because they are bright in person. Everyones lights look sweet.

    So what do people think they're achieving with grill lights while plowing? Corner strobes are about all the front lighting a truck needs. Roof & rear can accomplish the 360 degree visibility.

    I've worked with too many FD whackers who think more is better. No, adequate is better.

    Was wondering the same thing about the grill lights. I could see them maybe used on a salt/de-icing truck that doesn't have a plow. But thats about the only time it would make sense to me

    Ok, so no offense to anyone this might apply to, but it seems that some people have more money than brains when it comes to things they do. If anyone IS offended by this, then it is probably true for them.

    People blow $$ foolishly and wonder how it is they don't have money when it's really needed. To each his own, and good luck to everyone

    YardMedic how does it feel to be a jerk, jerk :rolleyes: Maybe its a hobby for them, or it brings them joy. Maybe instead of drinking :drinkup: all the time they work on their trucks or maybe the don't go out as much or watch movies. Everyone needs to spend there money on something. At least they like it, and they are doing something productive.

    To each his own, and good luck to everyone.
