    We are looking into strobe kits. Im am finding them from $81.00 shipped on up. Anybody running these? Ebay 270281106415?

    We need to buy at least 4 kits. And the pay checks wont role in for at least 60 days.

    What is a good kit. Whats the best bang for the buck?

    $81 for a strobe set is junk. For a decent 90 watt kit expect to pay closer to $200 for 4 strobes cables and a switch. I have one available for $189/shipped if you are interested. Brand new in the box.

    Ya, I've heard that G add's another 100hp. I think it's the high output version. ;)

    I hate it when people embarass us legit Cummins owners like that. Actually, I think Ford owns Cummings.

    I always go with reverse lights, the strobes in the tail light get drowned out when you step on the brakes. You can still see them, but not like when they are in the reverse lights.

    You can probably just got find a G about the same size and clip it out of the newspaper and glue it right on there. Easiest 100hp gain ever, aside from all the stickers like you see on the honda civics. O, don't forget the stick on fender vents and gold mirror reflective window tint.

    I was thinking of a 6 outlet because Im thinking about adding flashers to my mirrors. If I do i was thinking about hooking them to the strob unit.

    Thats a fair system, but only 60 watts and over $300! Mine is 90 watts and only $189!
