    Does anybody run amber lights on the top of their trucks or anywhere on the truck? Thinking about getting some ambers for my truck but I don't want to be the only one to do it.

    Do you use them while you are parked on the street somewhere mowing a lawn. That's more than likely what I would do if I used any. Or do you run them in the winter plowing snow?

    How do you run the lights while you're out on a job, do you have to leave the truck running or do you have another power source? You should post some pictures of you rig with the lights. Might I suggest www.code3pse.com. They have grille lights and deck and dash, all kinds of things.

    I have strobe lights on my truck for use in the winter when I'm plowing. I will throw them on if I'm pulled over on a busy road but thats limited at best.

    if you use a limited number of strobes or LED's you wont need to leave your truck running.

    use them for plowing and when pulling over on busy areas or backing the trailor or pulling out in to traffic leaving a job with the trailor. leave em off when mowing, might throw out a cone or 2

    I run a set of stop, tail, turn lights and a white utility light in the upper part of my head board. Incase a trailer light is not working the ones on the head board can be seen.

    Have amber mini bars on the trucks for snow removal in the winter. Dont use them unless carrying a full load of brush, backing trailers, etc.
