    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.
