    Strobes on truck facing backwards. Tier 3 LEDs on both plows facing sideways and forward facing on the truck. All Whelens.

    I'd drop a couple tir 3's midway down the side. Give you the ultamate side protection! Does look pretty good! :drinkup:

    I would have recessed some linear leds into the bumper. 4" round Tir style. I have 2 of them I used to use on the back of a trailer.

    For the sides maybe some 700 series linear leds or 400 series super leds or even the Linz 6. Your back account and your imagination is the limit. :D
    Good man on using the whelen stuff. :nod:

    in that year dodge Hide a ways look amazing in the front outer turn signal and very easy to install.

    i would put a set of Lin/Tir3 in the back facing to the side for when you back out of a drive way

    Lins and Tirs are LED's, self contained, and do not require any external flashers or power supplies.

    That's why I have them on the back plow - the furthest back they can get! Granby, CT

    Where did you get the round Tir's? I just recently discovered the Linz 6's. Last year I replaced the back facing strobes with Tir6's too bad I didn't know about the Linz then.

    I never heard of anyone being bothered while plowing for too many or too bright lights. Just don't drive around in traffic with strobes blasting every which way especially at night. I use mine when I need them.

    I was trying to find out if I needed one for my truck since I don't do anything commercially.

    It's your decision whether you want them or not obviously. Since you only plow residential, are any of these driveways on busy or main roads? Backing up into them may be a safety concern so some strobes would warn traffic that your there. This year I decided I wanted to install a good amount of strobes in ALL my plow trucks being that we landed some more commercial acounts and GAS STATIONS, which are hell because EVERYONE is trying to get around you.

    Oh good I don't need them, because isn't worth the investment.
