    As a follow up to that parking thread, I was wondering what you guys are using for lights on the tops of truckes/vehicles.

    The cheapo 19.99 amber ones or 299.00 ones with worklights and all. I am not sure what to get for mine. Also, how long can your vehicle battery last when it is running a light bar with the engine off?

    Thanks for the help.

    If your going to park in a "busy" area, more lights the better.... If your worried about your battery, go LED or storbes.

    I am also looking for those strobes that you connect inside your Head lights and tail lights. I am not so much concerned about the grass cutting, but snow plowing use. People drive like idiots in the snow.

    I'm sure you're not getting 20 m.p.g. pulling that trailer, especially around town. Even with 3.55 gears and a standard you'd be lucky to get 18, and 14 or 15 loaded. I have the standard and 4.10 gear and get a constant 15 with a 350 4x4 with a steel flatbed. Like I said If you're getting 20 please share with the rest of us. As those of us who know will say that seems a bit high.:blob3:
