    I have all of my lights wired up and ready to go. Federal Highlighter up top, Strobes in all four corners, 2 Whelen TIR3 lights on tool box, 55 watt worklights on the bottom of bumper, and 2 35 watt lights on the rear of the salt spreader. What do you guys think? I and thinking about adding two more strobes in the rear, on for each tailight.

    I'll second that! Looks good. But one question... Isn't it illegal to have strobes in your red brake light housing if you aren't certified as emergency response?

    I thought they had to be in the white or amber section.

    I called the police dept before I installed the strobes. I had them in the reverse lights but they told me I could not have any clear facing the rear. Even though a ton of guys around here have them in the reverse lights. The cop himself said that I probably would never get bothered but it on takes one cop with a bad day and you had got a ticket.

    Ya I was told that you are supposed to hit the amber lights in the rear facing lamps. I personally like the strobe strips that you can put on the lower section of the truck, like at the step rail area (or where they would attach). I know it can be different in different areas. I was just curious what they had to say about it.

    I can have them wherever because my father is FD and I have take downs in the truck for when he is working part time helping me. He has taken my truck to many crashes when he had all-calls. I even plowed the station last year for them... So I doubt it'd matter for me, but I thought I'd bring it up... Some people have no clue that certain colors are illegal in vehicle lighting.

    IDK yours looks great though man! that is just silly bright. I almost want to turn off the lights and run the video LOL. Good work.

    you should be able to do what you want on private property while plowing, you just might not want to drive down the road with the strobes on......

    I never drive down the road with any of my lights on. Only in the parking lot. Fords dont have an area with amber in the rear taillights so that is not an option with my truck. Thanks for all the nice comments. I think it looks great, I might try a night video and post it for ya tonight. And the best thing about it all it I have less then 300 bucks in all the lighting in the video :)
