Anyone here put strobes (e.g. Whelen's Hide-A-Strobe) into their backup lights or anywhere else? I just joined a response team that requires you to have some kind of warning device like this installed in your primary vehicle, and I'm trying to figure out how to do it without messing up the electrical system.

How do you install those strobes? remove the headlight assembly and drill holes in your reflector? Why did you choose the Whelen bundle over the Xpack?

You should also mount the red and blue strobes behind the grille, that'd be cool! good trick to play of friends.

You are correct, remove the HL and drill a hole.
I chose the Xpack cuz I only need 4 strobes. 1pr in the frnt 1pr in the rear, thats all I need. This is also their new version too, you don't have to put screws on the heads any more.

I did this already with my siren.:D and now the strobes:D

I chose Whelen after talking with our fleet mechanic, who says that's all almost anyone uses in emergency vehicles. Also, he gave me a Whelen strobe power supply out of one of our junked vehicles to use in my car, and I would rather just use the Whelen strobes that plug right in. I don't see myself using them frequently, perhaps not at all, but I'm also realizing that it might be a not-bad thing for safety if I run into a wreck in the middle of nowhere on a highway and stop to investigate.
