    Has anyone put strobes in the headlights of a new chevy? If so do you have a pic? Just got done putting the harness in for my plow and it didn't look like there was enough room. I took the whelen 90wt 4 bulb out of my Ford and want to put it in my new truck. With the ford I had a worl of room in the headlights! Your thoughts please:)

    If you have a Whelen service center / authorized installer, not just a dealer, they can tell you exactly where they should go. As stupid as this may sound, they do testing on OEM lamp assemblies to find the optically "best" installation point. I nver believed it myself until it was confirmed to me by a couple people I know who work at their headquarters in Chester.

    You still didn't answer the questions. If I had to guess, if all tubes are effected and it's an intermittant problem, it's probably the power supply going bad.

    I have. I decided to remove the lower marker bulb in each head lamp and use the hole for the strobe. Turn signals are bright, markers fine - I really don't think I lost anything.

    You do have to remove the radiator cowl, grill, grill bracket and there are three screws holding the head in place. Then swing it gently forward while rotating it into toward the center of the grill.

    Well ... does this happen when it's dry out and has been dry for 8 hours or more??? Or does this issue seem to happen when the truck has moisture on it?
