    Are you open to LED Hide Aways? There are a lot of advantages to LED, such as being able to leave the lights on while the truck is off, and LEDs also run at a much cooler temperature. I've seen quite a few housings that were melted because the traditional strobe tubes got too hot in the small housing.

    You can also get a set of LED hide aways for around the same price or even under what you would pay for a full strobe kit.

    We off two types of LED hide aways; the AWL Burst and the Feniex Cannon:

    If you have your mind made up on regular strobes, I can give you a great deal on a 4 or 6 bulb Code 3 kit.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you.

    Go to either sirennet.com or strobesnmore.com. Also id recommend something other than just a strobe kit as you wont have 360 deg coverage. A good alternative would be the whelen 500 series led light heads,youd need 6, i have a couple and they are highly effective. led light heads are also easier to intsall as they simply need a power and ground to operate. You could also go with a whelen TIR 3 style light, there a bit smaller so theyed be easier to mount in tight spots. Or lastly just a mini led light bar on the dump bodies cab protector would be great. you can get an awesome whelen bar for under $200!
