    There were holes already drilled to put them in the turn signals from the previous owner of my truck but i dont want to risk putting them there because the turn signals get alot of moisture for some reason and i dont want the strobe bulb to blow. So, would it be better to put them in my high beam instead?

    And also is this a good setup for my front, in the fog lights because there are also holes drilled from before, and then again, in my high beams? Appreciate the help guys.

    Also my other two strobes will be going in my reverse lights but I have no questions with that.

    The reason you are getting moisture in your signals is because of the existing holes. Once the bulbs are re-installed and sealed correctly, this problem will stop. This location is also the best placement of the strobe in the front of your style truck. Personally, I would just put those two in the front, fill and seal the fogs since they will be useless behind the plow, and put 4 heads in the back instead of two, since most of the time you'll probably have the fronts off trying not to blind yourself.

    The holes from the turn signals were covered up by som tape with almost like a tinfoil backing to it and they still have moisture and i have siliconed the whole outside of them too, im thinking of just getting new turn signals because the insides of them are dirty from the moisture too.

    It's a good idea to replace them if they're filthy, might as make em look as sharp as the rest of the truck.:nod: I would definetly recommend the current location though, I've been both routes, and I think the turn signal is a brighter location due to reflector angles etc.
