    Hey guys, I'm doing a 6 head strobe install on this F350 soon and was wondering who has installed on a truck like this and what lenght cables to get to the front headlights, taillights, and third break light? Thanks for the help.

    depends where you are mounting the power supply but seeing as its a 4door id go with atleast 20ft cables all the way around.. i used the 25ft on my truck and another f350 the same as mine and they were about 7or 8 ft too long so id say minimum 20ft for the front and rear and you could probably get away with a 10 or 15 ft on the third brake light..

    I use 20' and 25' on all fullsize trucks. I don't know about the third brake light.

    15' for the headlights can be done but you have to run it thru the cab on the passenger side front. Under the piece of plastic and thru a hole in the fire wall

    I got away with 15 with power supply under my seat. I don't have a crew cab long bed but I do have a super cab long bed
