    im looking to get a set of hidaways for my truck this year. i talked to my cuzin that has ben plowing for 10 years and he can get me a good deal on fs strobes and he said he has never had a problem with them. my question is can i put a standard strobe in my reverse light on my truck or will i need to get led's because of the heat the make? this will be going in the truck in my sig. also anyone in the dupage county area that would care to help the install that has done them before in a couple weeks?

    Feds are still a bright reliable hide-a-way. Not very well known as well as whelens. Personally I'd get whelen, but if they were handed to me I'd run them.
