    hi i do quite a bit of plowing with my ATV. It is a 2006 Honda Rancher 400 AT. I have been thinking about adding some strobes to it for a while now. I just dont know what lights to add. I dont know if i want regular strobes or LED strobes. I would like to be able to keep them on year round. They dont have to be hide-a-ways but i would like them to be pretty low profile. i would like for them to be amber. so what do you guys think?

    Either the lin 3s or the whelen 360 I think it is. The single stack led overheard. Its about 5 inches in diamiter. And can be mounted onto a pole.

    also what would you guys suggest for auxilary lights? i would like to have 2 lights on the front to shine over the plow and have 1 light in the back so i can see back there too. do you think that my ATV battery could handle 3 auxilury lights plus strobe lights plus using a winch to lift the plow blade......thanks for your help

    Ian not an atv guy and this is more of a question than a suggestion, but couldent you pit a bigger battery in the storage box and hook up the alternator to that and everything else, or would the alternator not be strong enough??? Like I said Ian not an atv guy.
