    Does anyone have hideaway strobes on a 3rd Generation Dodge. I am looking into putting a set in the reverse lights and front turnsignal housing. Wanted to see if anyone had advice for this project.

    Pretty straight forward. I just did them on my 2002 1500 in the exact same locations.

    For the reverse lights, go in from the bottom. The turn signals/headlights have 2 layers of plastic to cut through. I would first cut a larger hole through the first layer, then the correct size for the HAW

    Ive done it on 2 of my vehicles. It isnt really hard, just time consuming to do it right and make it look neat.

    I would stick with well known manufacturers(ie. Whelen,Nova,Fed Sig) ...there is a reason all the Fire/Police departments use them!

    I think rotators pull too much juice.

    I agree rotators do draw some power but I do enjoy the light output from the rotators.

    If you have 4 corner strobes I think a strobe beacon is adequate.

    If you want something a bit different on the roof an LED beacon would be a good choice.

    The only PITA is installing strobe tubes in the two piece head lights.
