I bought a flasher off craigslist today, it's a whelen DX something I think flasher, dual rotator, with a 4 sideagon mirror in the middle, I got it for $40, the only thing wrong with it is that it needs a new bulb on one side, but thats no big deal

Nice truck, almost the same as the one I just bought, just a little newer and less miles. You'll love it, except for gas mileage. I have a long list of things I want to do to mine also. Any plans for a bigger trailer??

haha I know. lol I know many still like rotators they sem to have a better light output. But I just like the slimer look of the responder compared to my big old bulky rotator. But to each his own.

I do like the rotators because of the mirrors and it makes it brighter, but I'm all for using better technology and I have looked into getting the same flasher as you, but I can't spend that kind of money right now.

Its about time you got a 2500! lol Truck looks nice but a few words of advice. Buy a drop hitch for your trailer. Also, look into selling that blue truck in the future. It WILL cost you in a few years. I used the hell out of my 1500 when i first started out like you did, and am now paying for it. I pretty much replaced everything except the engine in it. Just trying to save you the hastle i had. The 6.0 is a great engine but a PIG on gas. Dont expect what you got in the blue truck to get in the white one lol You're looking at 9mpg tops lol
