    List Price: $194.95 EACH

    Item Description

    When outfitting any vehicle the strobe power supply options and overall design should be priority. With Whelen power supplies you get the best options and premier quality. Whelen has added ScanLock to their power supplies. Scanlock™ is a revolutionary design feature that allows you to cycle through 10 flash patterns and lock in the one you want.

    The flash patterns available are: CometFlash, DoubleFlash, Rapid Rate, Triple Flash, Micro-Burst II, Micro-Burst III, Modu-Flash, Action Flash, Long Burst, Action Scan.

    This kit comes standard with Whelen's 6 outlet 90 watt power supply, 4 clear strobes each with 15' of cable for installation.

    Whelen 2 Year Warranty - Power Supply
    Whelen 1 Year Warranty - Strobe Tubes :confused:

    You guys think this is a good deal?
    For those that have them installed, is their anything else I should need?

    from what I have read on other posts you might need 30' wires instead of 15"s but check with someone on that!!

    Good luck

    You guys think that I should go with a 60 Watt kit or a 90 Watt kit??

    Whats the big difference between them, is one brighter than the other??

    Go 90, and get 2 25' cables for the 2 most remote lights from the supply, and you'll be good.

    +1 Sounds like a real good price.

    +5 although you might be able to get away with the standard cables. on my 4 door short bed i was only about 3 ft short on 2 lines but to make like easier id get the 25 footers.

    Also, you must go 90 watt, 60 wont be seen during the day.

    I have a 6/90 kit available for $189.99 and it includes 2 30' cables and 2 15' cables. Plenty long enough for a pickup.

    I agree with the majority of folks. Get two cables longer. I just installed this exact kit on a 2002 Chevy Crew Cab short bed 2500. I actually have the ECCO 60w kit on my F250 Crew Cab shortbed. It came with 4 15' cables, and mine are stretched TIGHT. I told my brother-in-law to get the two longer cables, which made his install EASY! I actually had a little slack, but you can be more picky as to how you run the wires.

    A friend of mine had the 6/90 kit installed on his F250 and it rocks. (hence why I talked my brother-in-law into the Whelen). We added a custom switch to his (available at galls.com or on ebay through strobes 'n more) that allows you to switch the flash patterns anytime you want to by using a pushbutton. It has two rockers and a momentary pushbutton. They run like $30, but really make it fancy.

    Who makes that one Duke?

    I'd like more info please!

    I swore my ECCO would be in my truck until it wears out or I lose at least 2 bulbs, but since we had a decent snow event earlier this week, I'm thinking about going ahead and buying a new setup and selling mine on Ebay.
