    It's a 90 watt Whelen from Strobesnmore. The vid is crappy, it's from my picture camera. They don't seem very bright in the video but in person they are blinding. Took me about 3 hours to install, it was the second time I've done it so it was pretty straight forward. I was going to put them in the headlights but it was going to take a good hour to get the headlights out (great design GM:gunsfiring:)

    No plow, I havn't even drove it this winter, except from my shop to the garage, which are both in my back yard. It's my pearsonal vehicle for 4 or 5 years and then it becomes a work truck.

    I actually got my first set in 03. I will plow eventually with it and it's nice to have them for the farm when pulling wagons and such. I didn't really need the diesel or the 3/4 ton either if I wasn't plowing snow. We keep our trucks for at least 10 years, so nothing goes to waste and yes I think they are cool!!

    Nice truck. I don't see how it would take an hour to pull out the headlights. We did 5 '07's in one day with two guys and we put 8 strobes in each truck. I have vid of one truck. http://www.youtube.com/NootDogg8870 Let me know what you yhink. It is somewhere in there.

    Well there must be a trick to it or something, the chev forum said 50 - 70 minutes and I tried for about 20 minutes and decided the fog lights looked better. I'm pretty mechanicly inclined but didn't like tearing a truck apart quite that much for strobes. Did you come in from the back and not take the lights out? Your vids need to be taken outside and longer then 7 seconds because I have no idea where to look that quick.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. The lift is a Cognito 4-6" set at around 5". I have a PPE programmer set on level 4 but that's about it for the motor. I can update my programmer now for a DPF delete, so I'm looking at some straight piped exhaust systems. I need to upgrade my tie rod ends, and ally and then I will be able to run on level 5 or 6 and then I plan on going to the truck pulls, to see what it's like. Keep in touch and maybe I can come see you pull. I want to see Bowtie Guy pull too! Been pulling long?
