Looking for advice on small LED flashers...

    I've got a Salt Dogg V-box spreader and I have it setup with two floodlights bolted to the rear. They are wired to a round 7-way plug that plugs into the truck receptacle and they come on when I put the truck in reverse.

    I'd like to bolt up two small(3-5"?) amber LED strobes to the rear of it, and I would run the wiring to that same round plug, just wire them into the same circuit as the taillights so they come on when the lights are on.

    What are your recommendations? I guess the only stipulation would be that they need to be 2-wire flashers so that they are simple to hook up. Also water/snowproof would be nice, as the back end of the truck always gets snow all over it.

    As for the front I am considering two strobes in the grille of the truck too and those would be wired into one of my free upfitter switches in the cab(this is an '06 F250, two of the switches are in use). So any recommendations for those would be great.

    A few options. I Love using the sound off Products so I'l Recomend some of them. Something like a 4" round gen2 or 3 is a nice cheap easy way to get some light back there. and since they use DOT holes easy to mount or cut a whole for or buy a bracket. If you wanna go surface mount, something like the preditor or ghost series may suit you well. If you have any questions or wanna see something shoot me a pm, i could get some stuff together for you.

    Hey I like that setup. I'm interested in the amber flashers and also the round LED spotlights, as I've seen a few of those on some other companies' trucks. I will shoot you an email for more info:)

    Here's what I have now, two floodlights wired to come on with the reverse lights:

    i bought 4 of these: http://www.sirennet.com/gl4.html

    two for my trucks back rack and 2 for my brothers.
    completely self contained, sealed etc...
    1 power wire, 1 ground, 1 flash pattern wire that you tap to change patterns and 1 sync wire if you want the two lights synced or alternating. that wire just gets attached to the power wire. so its a simple 2 wire hookup.
