    OK, So let me pick your brains a little. I need another set of strobes for plowing. I have projectors with HID's for headlights on truck. I want to put Clear LED Strobes in Highbeams and Clear LED's in reverse lights of truck. That is option 1. Option 2 is to put amber up front in highbeams with clear in the back. To much wash of amber color in front and just stick to clear? I already have amber in my daytime running lights and a windshield amber clear led talon. Here is a pic of what my headlights look like.

    I would go with the minibar also, whelen Responder II would be my choice but if I were installing anything in the headlights I would put them in the lower housings as they will be much brighter.

    Thus the lightbar on top! Even a 10ft Dxt wont block it there! I know they arent exactly sexy but they offer unobstructed 360degree lighting! But thats not what this thread is. I was just pokin fun!

    check your local laws, they may prohibit the use of strobes in the lights front or back, and some areas require snow contractors to have 360 degree of lighting.

    Tell you the truth I think you have more than enough lights to the front put some going off to the side. But if you must have more up front then go for some grill lights. And for the hideaways in the back go with amber they are more noticeable.

    I would go with grill lights if you had to go front.

    Just my 2 cents on the mini bar up top, if you have a Back Rack, you can get a mount and permanently mount the magnet mount to their light bar attachment ($30), but still use a cigar plug on it so you can just unbolt the light bar attachment from the Back Rack after the winter. that way you get a clean look and no holes in your roof.
