"SEARCH" button is the 3rd from the right on the top menu bar. Give that a click and you'll be surprised what you find.

Good Luck & welcome to RF!!

...by the 10th post you'd figure they'd know, especially being a member since January.

I have them in my headlights and fogs, but disconnected them about a month ago. I bought the streetglow ones and drilled my headlights and fogs. Basically all you do is drill your lights where you want them(be careful not the crack the housing). Then place in the strobe. They have a grommet that screws in to keep water out. They were pretty cool for a while but not functional in any way. Every now and then I would flip them on at shows and stuff. I will have mine for sale as soon as my new housings come in.

i've got a Whelen strobe kit on my front corners and in the tail lights. easy to install the strobe pacl (brain, power unit thing) i put in the jumpseat behind the driver, theres a hole there goin down so all my wires come in there. it comes with great instructions. just remember if u put then in the corners up front make sure you have about a good 1/2in. between the strobe and the light housing not the bulb but the whole pastic unit the strobe will melt the corner lens.

Well to imitate an emergency vehicle of course. LOL
As much as they are for "show" use....I've seen people here abuse them on the public roads. Nothing like a kid with a crown vic come flying up behind you with LED's and strobes flashing and pass you. Needles to say, strobes should only be on emergency vehicles. There's a fine line between department use and volunteer service use too. Around here volunteer firemen use a single green flashing light on their dash in their personal vehicles. I've seen a volunteers truck decked out with full strobes in the headlights and tail lights as well as LED's behind the grille and visors......there's no need for that.

Thats why I ask. It wouldn't be the first time on here that someone has actually stated it was so they could drive around on the road with lots of lights flashing and intimidate people.
