    Since you have extra $ to blow... shoot some my way... "I'll Be Your Friend!" :D

    Why don't you see if you can get into the light business... Become a rep for Whelen... I'm sure you'd be good at it.

    Can one run flashers in the factory marker lights on the roof? It might be cool to have them alternate in a row across the roof, or go from the outside in, or the inside out, you get my drift I am sure.

    1 Get yourself some led lamps to replace the incandescent one's in the marker lights.
    2 Get yourself some kind of led flasher. (sho-me arrow type if you want them to sequence)
    3 Pull down your headliner and cut all the positive feeds and rewire them to said led flasher.
    Voila....flashing marker lights.
    Or buy some cheapo led 194 lamps on E-bay like I did and eventually (since they're garbage) all the lights will start to randomly flash. They have since been replaced with lamps from Autozone and no longer flash.
    Don't know if the sho-me flasher has steady burn so you might have a little more work ahead of you if you want them to be steady on too.

    a minor short in the wires to the marker lights will also make them flash in a strange pattern. Just be careful and watch the spot real close because your truck may just catch on fire!:yow!:

    I've read so many on line reviews ....:dizzy:

    This is what I'd like to read/see;

    -Test with a device which measures light output from 10', 100', 1000'
    -Have a baseline light which all lights are compared to. For instance; take a 55watt halogen most everyone can figure that out.
    -Type of plastics used ie. uv treated, crack resistant
    -ease to figure out dimensions
    -heat output and once again compare it to a 55wat halogen and the melting point of automotive light lens plastic from 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1" away from material
    -Indicate an abuse factor. Ie. water submersion, salt spray, vibration, impact
