    I know of some guys who have strobes mounted on their mirrors like this and HATE IT- at night strobes always reflecting off hood/through window/ flashing you in the eyes- we always mount our on top of the cab/ rear of dump body, etc., for what its worth...

    My buddy has those on his chipper/forestry truck and they stand out real nice and don't come into the cab. But he put those on his oversized I-Box behind the cab.
