Project! Strobe LIghts

I installed two strobe lights today in the front of my truck (bottom of license plate.. After I helped jaye_t with the BHLM, I started working on this! The lights were like 12.99 and came with everything (relay, switch, and wiring). It took me about 45min to install and hide the wires... Im satisfied with its quality so far.. I like the look of it when they are on, it just adds to the BADASS factor of tacomas IMHO.

Here's a video of my current light setup: (turn volume down)



Please tell me what you think!

yeah it's not exactly legal i've read up on some of the rules from police forums. i think it's OK to do if it's a highway admin truck but not for a regular Joe. i won't be abusing them, i'll use them if i'm pulled over with a flat or helpin someone else out. i'm gonna have to talk to a cop buddy about it. they aren't getting returned!

They also blatenly run red lights constantly in Portland so... why should yellow lights even remotely phase them?


Also they're only illegal for road use. You can have them but use only off road (car shows, ect). At least that's true in AZ.

Personally, unless it's an emergency or construction vehicle... I think it's retarded. Sure an undercover taco with red 'n blues would look sweet but it's stupid if it's fake.
