Need hideaway strobe help

I'm looking to get a set of hidaways for my plow truck this winter. I was thinking about 2 in the grill and 2 in either the tails or on the back of my spreader. The only thing is I've never used them before and am pretty clueless in the area, so any reccomendations on kits or anything really would be appreciated.

Re: Need hideaway strobe help

You can hook to 1 switch. Theyre super easy to install. They have a sync wire that will help get them all on the same pattern. Install just takes a 1" hole n the housing and 2 small screws hold them in place. Some clear silicone will insure a nice watertight seal
