    95 Chevy 1500 w/Boss blade, where should I mount 4 clear strobe's?(tail/back-up) (Head light/parking light)? also what is a decent fair priced hideaway kit, 4-6 strobes?
    Thanks, Yon

    i would go with whelen vertex hide a way LED and then they can be color and not get you in trouble for the clear and they have a super low amp draw seeing how you have that big hog on the roof

    i had the same truck

    the way mine was set up was both front daytime running lamps
    backup lights and brake lights, the turn signal was in between so it gave enough space that they did not blend together.

    also on the rear i had them flashing in a criss- cross pattern, right brake left back up would flash and then left brake and right back up. looked really awesome.

    Ok then, to me it sounds like you have 8 strobe's? so if I put 1 in each head light on the truck and not the plow this will not reflect back to me off the back of my plow? this is about my only concern.
    as far as the rear I thought to put them in my back up lights, 2 in the front and possibly the last 2 in my cargo light or is that just a poor idea? maybe I should as you say 2 in my break lights, 2 in my back up lights and 2 up front?
    Sorry for any confusion I may be causing, but once I drill six 1" holes I want them where they will be most visable, and look cool to.....
    Thanks again, Yon

    after I reread it I see you only used 6, thats prob. what I'm gonna do, but I would also like to get 2 in my plow lights also, I guess I gotta look for a power supply that will run 8 strobes.

    In the plow lights to me would be alot more trouble than its worth. Remember you have to worry about the connections from plow to truck, and that in the short run could just be a matter of a wether tight plug, but overtime i see headaches in the future. Good Luck either way.

    ok, if I was to do that I would use a HD trailer plug, keep it under the hood to protect it, also once I put my blade on I try in keep it on the whole season, so it's still up in the air for now.
