i'm in the middle of installing streetglow strobes... i'm installing one in each tailight in the reverse lenses, and one in each front clear corner. i'm installing them in the corners instead of the direct headlight fronts so that they can be seen from the side too.

i put mine above the headlight, under that little plastic flap that bolts on above it.

that way i wouldn't have to worry about condensation in the headlight and the light blinked into the headlight and then reflected...

unless your dead set on getting strobes, get highbeam flashers instead... much cheaper and basiclly the same considering your getting them for no real reason...
