    So, basicaly George or "Dissociative" is the best guy for this and helped me out with this. Wink wink! I installed a Whelen 180 Watt Monster Box, with 8 strobe heads, 22.5 watts per head. Switches, control button for patterns, armored all lines under truck, and have secondary wires run through armored ones for addons later in life. I have 2 Amber stobes in the grille, 2 in the front parking lights, 2 in the cargo lights, and 2 more in the brake lights. In the videos i have one of the cargo lights is out and thats because i broke one of the strobes putting it in. Let me tell you a few lessons learned that day were, #1 theyre very easy to break... be careful. #2 Do NOT let any exposed wires touch eachother when the box is running. It will short the box out, luckily mine did not but as i was told by George i basically kicked my power house in the balls... LOL. Everythings great though, kit was easy to install to about 3 hours for main install and 2 more after for cleaning and sealing it all up.

    The set up i have flashes so bright and so fast the camera cant keep up so when it looks like their is a 2 second delay between flashes their is realy like 3 more flashes, it just wont pick it up...

    You can find pictures and video on my Photobucket album here...
