is the amber light LED?

I would like to get something similar for my F350 ext. cab so I can light up my step bars at night.

I was 19 when I bought that truck and I paid $18,000 cash for it, so I could afford anything but CHEAP lights!

Point: I couldn't afford an awesome wheelen light bar b/c I spent a wad on my truck. "Cheap lookin "or not, they get the job done.

bigjeeping, that light setup seems extremely effective for its purpose.

How long have you had your reverse lights mounted under you bumper? I put a set there on my truck and wiped them out the first night plowing. I have a habit of backing up into the snow bank because I have some real tight locations. I not leave one of my trailer hitches in to make sure I don't dent my bumper on the concrete walls.

I put them on just after I got the truck. The easiest way not to rip them off is by not plowing :waving:

If I was going to plow with them I would probably build a cage for them, but since I don't its not a problem.

Thanks Mike. It works great. Lights up the rear brighter than the headlights do the front!

BSDeality - strobes look good!!

do you turn them on everytime you park your trailer at a jobsite?

do you turn them on everytime you park your trailer at a jobsite?I'm still planning it, however I will probably tie them into the reverse lights so that they go on when I'm in reverse. Then I will also wire it so I can flip a toggle switch on the tongue of the trailer and have them run off the breakaway battery, then that gets charged up soon as I run the truck again.

I was at Tractor Supply today and saw where they have my square brake lights like on my dump trailer but as LED's for $18 each, i want!!

Plus, I use my brakes or signal I'd like to be noticed a little more, the stock single bulb isn't bright enough and I have to just come over on people 1/2 the time, then again 1/2 the people in northern VA aren't capable of driving anyway
