    so i have a 1 ton dump truck and would like to put strobe on each corners of the dump bed and two on the back. i have seen local city truck have this type of set up and don't know what i would need to make it happen. The lights look to be maybe 2" tall and 4" wide and are bolted on to the side, but not in gromits... sp?
    obviously i need 6 lights (prefer led) and some type of power source.
    any help would be great!

    I think the best lights I have seen are the Whelen Lin6 but I think they may be a bit wider than 4". Sure are bright though!

    Maybe try these. http://www.soundoffsignal.com/warnamber/surfacemnt/sm_LED3.htm That's what I have in my grille and on my toolbox, they're pretty blinding both day and night. Have several flash patterns. You can sync. op a total of four lights together. I synced my front set and synced the back set. As far a a power source, I would suggest a switchbox, but you can just use a simple toggle switch. Only reason I suggest the switch box is because you have the option of easy adding of more lights or something like that. Like I said, I like those soundoff lights, I would recommend them, I think I got them for like $40 a piece.

    i use the whelen lin3 (lins6 will work but little much for side lights) mounted on an angle bracket with the cast aluminum brackets for protection.

    you could also probally use a set of whelen vertexs mounted on the side as well

    here are the lins 3
