I got my Whelen Lights

MY New Amber Lights Video

I got my Whelen TIR3 and LIN3 lights in the mail today. I got one of each off of Ebay both are amber.

I still have to buy at least one more LIN3 lighthead and then Im gonna get one more TIR3 for now and later im gonna get 2 more of the TIR3s

TIR3

LIN3

I think for the TIR3 Lightheads im gonna buy the Galls branded ones because they are $10 cheaper (currently on sale) and are made by whelen

As for Mounting locations I think 2 of them Im gonna get under the tailgate using the grommet mounts. Then Im gonna mount 2 behind the grille and when I get 2 more mount them in the back window.

This is the TIR3 lighthead only. I decide to go with this flash pattern. Gonna hook the one up behind the back glass tomorrow after work until I get another Ill just have this wired up in the rear. and until I can find the grommets to mount them under the tailgate the LIN3 is not gonna be hooked up yet

haha his truck is too nice...


Ill help you install everything if you let me get those fusion seats off ya...


Personally the reason I got these was because I tend to stop on the side of the road to help people out and have almost been ran over many times because the flashers dont draw enough attention to the idiot drivers... Plus if im stopped on the side of the road with ambers going its the law to slow down or move over...

I stopped at a accident one night that was blocking the far right lane at a stop light the guy had severe frontal damage the intersection was not lit very well and his electrical was not working so his black car was in the dark. I stopped and no one had called the police yet so I called, took them almost 45 mins to respond. and in that time used my last flare while I waited and I had my flashers going. Speed limit was 45mph and I counted about 6 cars that came very close to rear ending me.

That is one of the many instances I used to justify getting some lights to grab peoples attention...
