Warning lights on my truck and trailer!

Finally got them all hooked up. Might be a little overkill but it looks cool and should help alert drivers when I am parked on the side of the road. Last year a landscaper got hit on my street and the trailer was sitting on top of the car, wheels off the ground. Hopefully that never happens to me now! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlfI655KInw

I used a pair of white connecters off of some old rc batteries for the quick disconnect, then I ran all the wires next to the factory trailer wires and wrapped it all up with some of that flexible plastic conduit for a clean look. I'll get some pics tomorrow.

I've ordered strobes and leds from sirennet.com. Do a google search. I've even thought about putting a mini led bar on top my skidsteer.

I go the lights off ebay. They are pretty cheap but I didn't want to spend a ton of money on this. Total cost was under 80 bucks.
