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.

Whelen has a realy well built setup. Come with instructions. Alot of people drill theme into the headlights and tails.

I have one of code 3s kits for nearly 5 years and hasnt missed a beat, its not the cheapest but it is the best considering most law enforcement vehicles use code 3 equipment

I have whelen vertex in the clear section of my tailiights. its a little tight but it works great. the front headlights are even easier.

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

If you want the brightest flash, keep them mounted in small places, such as reverse light, turn signal area. Headlight area is a bad place in my opinion because you get drowned out by the headlights. Mine are mounted in the front turn signals and fogs, rear reverse and cargo light area. The cargo and fog look bad ass!!!!!

I prefer sound off signal. My brother does installs on police/fire/ems/3 letter acronym groups, and thats all they use. There hide a way kits are bright as ****. Just my opinion, whelens good I'm just not a fan

All I have to say is thank god I have my front hide a ways on a separate switch cause after a few hours of plowing I feel like I'm gonna have a seizure. Just something to think about
