Re: strobes?

worth every penny IMO. I have 4 up front two in the windsheild and two in the brake lights. As for a 4 head system I would put them in the turn signals and the brake lights. Putting them in clear lenses is rough on the eyes after 10 hours of plowing because they are so bright, but if your just going to use them as warning lights on the side of the road then I would probably put them in the clear lenses like the reverse lights and the headlights.

Re: strobes?

Check your local laws! Here in jersey you cannot have them in your headlights or tail lights or you may face some jail time if you use them on the street.

Actually you can if the bulbs are Amber.

Clear and Red are reserved for fire/ems and LEO's. Thats the reason behind that law

I wouldnt spend $250 on a old kit when you can buy a brand new 6 bulb kit for less than that.

I wouldnt even buy strobes period. Whelen vertex LED hide-a-ways are the BEST by far...

IF you have an amber light permit and only in the front turn signals and back up lenses or if the rear turn signals are amber in color. Oh and here its blue and red not clear and only police can have anything in the headlights.
