    You have seen these lights on race trucks and chase trucks when out in the desert. With visibility up to a mile, they are the ultimate in vehicle safety.

    Similar units can range in price from $80 to $250, but that is about to change.

    For a limited time, Engage Offroad is presenting these dashboard chase lights in white and amber for the special introductory price of $40 plus ($10) shipping and handling.

    Will these cause the stoplights to turn green like the emergency vehicles do? If so, I'm in for two!!!!

    These lights are intended for off road use only. As such, we have not tested these lights on streets.

    As previously stated, PM for order info. We are currently having the Engage website redesigned and as of now, TW is the only place we are offering these lights online.

    We are also working on the chase lights for rear facing use and will post pics and video up soon.

    Stay tuned!

    :thumbsup:

    For the record, these lights are intended for off road use only. Their purpose is to make your truck visible when out on the trails or in the desert. We have found that the strobing effect of the LEDs is effective in finding trucks lost in the distance or stuck/stopped on the trail.

    Engage Offroad is not responsible for its use.

    Thanks!

    :D

    See build thread.
    No these will not trip the Opticom Systems made for EMERGENCY VEHICLES. You'll get a painful spanking if caught triggering them for your own use.

    My honest review...
    • The mounting bracket is flimsy and bends easily.
    • The mounting screw was cross threaded from the factory (QC).
    • The lights are not bright enough for day use and is minimal for night runs.
    • The power cord isn't long enough and needs to be detachable to add a hard wire option.
    • a little overpriced with the current issues and concerns.
    • on\off switch needs to be built into the unit.
    • The selector switch should be moved to the back of the unit to be easily accessable to the driver.
    I hope this review is helpful for improving the product for future use.

    Thanks for the review.

    We received a new set of lights that are the step up from the simple dash light. The new lights are all metal construction and address the previous concerns.

    I should have pics up of the new lights by end of next week.

    :thumbsup:

    Hi James

    Your account is not set up to receive PMs.

    Feel free to PM me directly for info. Also, let me know if you wanted these dash lights or the higher end chase lights that can be mounted on dash or behind front grill.

    :thumbsup:
