    Full strobe bar

    My truck has a full Whelen Edge light bar. Amber. As the cap on the bed blocks it's rear veiw, I have a Dash Lazer in the cab facing the rear. Front turn signals have strobe tubes in also. Rear of cab has a Federal Signal traffic director bar also.

    Got to say I use this truck for other reasons also. I would be happy with a beacon light alone on cab.

    Thanks

    Code 3 420 amber mini bar and front and rear corner stobes, its pretty effective and i usually turn off the front strobes due to the crazy flashback i get from it.

    One amber rotator. Like to keep it easy & simple, stick my magnetic light on the cab when plowing and take it off and store it until next time.

    Ive got 6 Hideaways( in my HD), a whelen mini edge, sho-me led bar, whelen talon 2, all amber. The Whelen mini edge and Sho-me LED bar are interchangable between trucks (hard wired and magnet mount). The talon can be changed around also because its suction cups and cigar plugged. Everything else is hard hired. I can never have to many lights:yow!: . I'll take a video this weekend and try to post it.
    Mark, where the hell did you find a places for 8 heads?
    When I get my dump itll have Whelen Micro edges on the mirrors, remote heads in the bed and Ill prob. put a set in the front clearence lights.
    Thanks Guys
