    Working on my Ford Flat bed dump project. When I am done I will be posting the whole project. The rear tail light panel will have strobes in it as well.

    Strobe'n has been a little slow these days for me. I just bought a house - so I've been splitting my time trying to keep her happy while I get my new garage into working order. But the season's are-A-changing.... so I'll be back at it soon enough. Thumbs Up

    Im looking to install some more lights on the truck. I really dont want to run anymore power packs. How are the Led Flashers. Are they bright? Can you get all of them you hook up to flash in the same pattern?

    If you get a decent unit, you can do just as you want. I run two of them. One from my FRONT switch firing my Factory cab clearance lights (with LEDs) and Factory mirror LEDs. The other is from my REAR switch and it fires my (Recon) 3rd brake assemby and cargos. It also runs a pair of license plate mounted LEDs and under tailgate LED's.

    Here's a quicky showing the cargo set-up... sh*tty footage from a cell phone though.

    Here's an old thread of mine with a little more discussion regarding the wiring and pin-outs for the relays.... Sorry, the old videos don't link properly, but still some good reading...

    Just installed a 3 way switch and relay in my back up lighting. Its so nice to not have to manually turn on the revers lights

    by 3 way do you mean

    1- off
    2- reverse actuated
    3- force on

    all on a single three position switch?...Very nice..i am a huge fan of that set-up.

    Now...take a look at your interior light that comes on when you unlock your door with the key fob....find the ground trigger off that light and use it to hit the reverse when you unlock or open doors....its very nice at night...

    then tie the fogs in to it and add a set of fogs center truck tucked up under body aimed at ground....i have it like that and LOVE it..

    of course when i tied everything into the doors like that i also put a tiny push on/off button switch in a clever spot where i can simply kill all the non stock lighting if i am being sneaky...funny thing too is that very same switch disables my brake lights too as well as stock interior light......i call it my "dark" switch...really nice at night to be able to operate with absolutely no lights if you ever wanted to for whatever reason. Turn on the map lights in the roof that are now red leds if you need a touch of light.
