    Federal Signal Fire-beam in the Dash :). Probably going to put some whelen Tir 3's in the grill and on a license plate mount for the rear. Those new hideaway led's look sweet I may put those in instead if I ever get around to spending the money. For now its just the old trusty fire-beam and four ways.

    I'm thinking of getting some for my Tacoma as well... Thinking of a Whelen dash unit, red/white, or just white... Not sure what the laws are where I live, so I'll have to look into that. I don't think we're allowed anything like that, but we shall see. I think a dash unit paired up with two small lights in the grille would be wicked, and two out back on the rear bumper or under the tailgate. Or rear facing lights in the back window...

    I have to look into this, I commute an hour to work, on really crappy roads in the winter and I'm hesitant to stop at accidents due to safety reasons, though I'm required to, so it happens.

    I just sold my Whelen Talon and two Linear 3 grill lights. They worked great.

    Here you can see how I had my Talon mounted to the headliner. Started off using the suction cup bracket below the mirror but it blocked my vision to much. Mounted where it is in this picture you can't even see it outside when it's off, it's blocked by the black dot thingies on the windshield.

    No I never did take any video of it... but I can tell you this much, it would move some traffic that's for sure..... the dash light was half red half white and the grill lights were one red one white but set on opposite sides from the colors of the dash light. Was an awesome setup.

    I've got a Mini-Phantom in the windshield, as well as 2 SirenNet LEDs mounted vertically in the slots of the grill..no pics, sorry.

    I've got 4 more to put on, and they're going on the sides and back of the toolbox.. gotta have 360 degree visibility.

    Yea in the big snow storm we had last winter it was really interesting. Since we declared a state of emergency and our engines wouldn't make it out of the building the chief kinda made my truck a first response unit for awhile. Some of the other members loaned their dash lights and whatnot and my truck was totally lit up. Was kinda funny to see it with that many lights and a bed full of tools.

    Thats cool you got to use your truck i just want it to look classy without going over the top but still have enough lighting on the side of the road are strobes a good idea if you have running boards i see people you small leds in there along the side looks good and helps when parked sideways on the road
