    Depending on the actual truck... You don't want to go to much on it. overall... option #2

    Option 1, IMHO, 2 big grill lights look better than 4 smaller lights. Besides, LIN6's are awesome.

    option 1 i think would be better. when plowing you dont want crazy lights. simple lights warn people. people are alredy dumb enouph you dont want to confuse them with a bunch of different lights. keep it simple.

    Hide them behind the grill. On the front of the grill looks tacky.

    Put LIN 3's on your license plate. They even make a bracket for it. Had them for 4 years. Love them. Hideaways in the reverse lights in the rear. I will see if I have a pic

    You can do either, but the deciding factor ultimately is price. The 700s are almost double the 500s when all is said and done.

    Why not put the New M-Series on. The M-7 would be good on the truck for light to the front.

    Don't know when, I think this summer some time. You could go to the Whelen web site and check them out.

    M Series Lights

    The M series lights by Whelen are out. LHS Lights have them and have a video of the lights working. They are the best choice for your grill lights.

    Why even go with grille lights? Oncoming traffic can't see them when the plow is up... Hideaways in the corners and a box on top should be plenty - you can even lose the front 2 hideaways to save some cash for same mentioned reason.

    yah LOL isnt that true i would worry more about the backside then the front ... after all most time your backing out in traffic ... that why i love my truck 4 corners since i have a camper .. whelen slimlighter facing the rear .. and 2 able microlights one facing out each sids of the camper along with the lfl patiot on the roof .... good enough 360 warning .. corners a great see them from all angles ..

    I personally don't like hideaways. I have Whelen TIR 3. I mounted two of them behind the grill not sticking out, and I mounted two in the back right below my dump insert. They are bright as hell for only 3 led's in the unit. I hooked the front two to a switch and the back to another switch then it goes to the battery.
