    Does anyone have the Whelen LED hide aways? How are they? Bright? worth the money? Thinking of the for my F250. I don't care for strobes when its snowing, the light reflex to much and give me a head ache.

    I do not have them, but have seen them, they are bright, well worth the money.

    Let me see if I can find a video of them.

    Yep, that and the fact that these are still getting to dealers, so availability is a little sketchy.

    I should also note that I know of one installer who does state contracts for police cruisers, that will be switching to these LED haws in just about every vehicle they upfit as they are very impressed with them and shine better than the strobes. They made a comparison video of the two. I'll see if I can find that also.

    I have the new nova l.e.d hideaways the w600"s in my reverse lights on my 08 250 and all i can say is amazing. much smaller than the whelen and just as bright. got them from aw direct. They dont produce any heat and the power supply's are built in to the wire. VERRRRYYY BRIGHT

    I want to get them but like stated the cost. I know someone the works for a Whelen dealer he is going to see what he can do on the price. Hope its good.

    Yes, the 2 head LED kit is $400 retail for white, $419.00 for amber. Wholesale is 40% off of that, prpbably will not find any dealer doing below the 40% off. They are extremely bright, even better that the strobes, IMO. They are very cool, as they have 84 patterns, including some where the individual bulbs do the rotator pattern. The best part is low power draw and a 5 year warranty!
