I have been thinking of getting some strobe light's for my truck the kind u put in your headlight's and tail.Anyone got these?What do you think they worth it?Installation hard?Someone let me know seen them in Angelo's catalog.
The Police ones are the bright ones. The ones from Northern may not be as bright. From what I've heard, they're not too hard to put in. You just have to drill a 1" hole in the taillight/headlight/turnsignal where you want it, and run wires to the controller.
With the controller, the 4 corners will cost you about $600. Look for someone that installs them and see if they have any used ones available. A lot of P.D.'s won't reuse them but have them removed before they sell or trade the old vehicles. I know of a fellow on the volunteer fire dept that got his that way.
HAVING BEEN A MECHANIC.THESE THINGS SUCK....EVERY TIME I'VE SEEN THEM INSTALLED THE LIGHT LEAKS MOISTURE IN AND THE KILLS BULBS PREMATURELY THEN YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE LIGHT HOUSING ......WHICH CAN BE EXPENSIVE
AW direct has them for about 350.00, and a local guy got me a set for 200.00. They are nice, but make sure you get duetze connectors, they are water proof. Also seal where you drill the hole into the light.
Install isnt to bad, will take a few hours.
Being a fireman I had them in my personal truck in although all amber the worked well with my blue strobe light bar. When using them to plow I was told by a friendly (verbal warning) state trooper that I still needed a roof light to provide 360 of light. Just passing along what I was told I do not know the laws for amber lights.
I also have them for responding to fire calls, the installation will only take a couple hours and I have not had a problem with ruining the headlight. I would suggest sticking with Gall's on this type of thing, they are very helpful and good to deal with.
