    Cheap knock off system. Try this

    Little bit more money, but top of the line quailty. You do need to drill 1" holes in the lights to install them. Seach through the threads in this section, I have pics showing where to place them in the lights in your style truck.

    can you change the flash pattern on that system? I read where someone wanted to mount the head under the seat. With that being the case how do you turn it on/off?

    thanks

    I would say 15's for the front and 25's for the back. This way you have enough to run and tie them where you want and not stretch them or run out. But I would do like Blueline said and spend the extra few bucks on quality. For one you will have a good warranty and be able to source replacement parts much easier.

    The two longest cables are actually gonna be one to the back and one to the front, on the same side. For example if you mount the box under the rear drivers seat, then the longer cables will be needed for the front and rear passenger lightheads. Those are the two most extreme posts.

    As for turning the system on and off, you wire in switches wherever you want them. I don't know of any system you need to go to the supply to turn it on or off, or change the patterns.
