Why would you need them? To make your truck all flashy? But if you use them for a legit reason such as a job, I say yes. If not, go to autozone and have fun in the chrome section. I promise that'll bring more eyes to your truck then strobes.

You might want to check with your local Police Department. I do emergency lighting installs in New Mexico and the hideaway strobe systems are considered illegal here unless the vehicle they are on is parked at a car or truck show.

i have strobes on my truck, but they are for when we are out in the desert prerunning and chasing during races...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZ4daHSawtE

although, i did use them once to block an intersection when the car in front of me hit a pedestrian and killed the poor guy, but considering i was the one on the cell phone with 911 and checking his pulse, the cops didn't sweat me about the lights...

if you want it for shits and giggles, then i say don't do it...
