I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado short bed P/U that I want to install a "hidden" strobe system in. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations on manufacturers?

Yea whelen makes most of the strobes and sirens out there on the ambulances. I've got Federal Signal red grille strobes on the truck and clear strobes in the side of the headlights. Clear ones are completely hidden.

just be careful what color you use. in La. you can only use Yellow or Amber. red, white, and blue are for emergency vehicles.

I bought my system 3 years ago, and it is still going strong. I have a 6 outlet 90watt power supply. I do all my own installs, and have done quite a few for friends. I have 2 red nova microthins mounted in the grill, and a set of clear hideaways mounted in the backup lights and in the front turn signals. I am also a call Firefighter/EMT. I had a dashlight but it just got in the way. Check out the link below, he has just about everything you could want.
