    they all look cheap as hell to me. i def wouldnt buy the hide-a-way flashers. nothing like drilling a nice one inch hole in your tail lights for em then they **** the bed. id spend the little ectra to get a decient set of hide-a-ways. but thats just me.

    If you're doing anything longer than a regular cab, you'll want 20 foot cables for the farthest points. As for the different kits here, you had it right, you get what you pay for. I'm not gonna go into my rant about china knock-offs and such, I'm sure you can find that else where on here xysport

    well i have an extended cab 6 ft box. All i can find are the 15' cables. In fact i found a whelen on ebay used, with new cables and strobes. but it has 15' cables. are the 30' cables available for purchase seperately? it is a 60 watt unit...is that good?

    id say go with whelen HAWs and whelen tir3s.

    it will be more expensive but its a hell of a lot better. the tir3s are waterproof and the HAWs are the best.

    The 60 Watt will be ok, if yor really want bright, go 90W. Try www.vlsusa.com and build yourself a kit and see what the price is. Also try www.lshlights.net or www. strobesnmore.com

    its true you get what you pay for. youll be happy in the long run you spent the extra money first, instead of having to replace lights. my suggestion is the Whelen LINs, i love mine.

    im glad you like the avatar Goldpro. but what happened to its .....
