    Hey guys

    I wanted to put in a strobe kit in my truck but I cant decide between these two:

    Wolo 8004-1CCCC Hideaway 80-Watt Power Supply and Four Bulb Strobe Light Kit
    [​IMG]
    OR

    LEDGLOWs Automotive 4pc HID Xenon Strobe Kit
    [​IMG]

    The first one is $85.34 (down from $231.50 on Amazon)
    The second is $89.99 (down from $399.99 also on Amazon)

    The only problem that I'm leery about is the HID ones are 2 inches whereas the first ones are only an inch. Might be too long for my 1st gen's tail lights.

    Any opinions?

    are these just for show?

    When i had strobes in my prior truck for the fire department, i ran a whelen 90w 6 outlet pack.

    Top quality with Whelen.

    but if this is just for show, go with cheap stuff.

    Agreed. My company installs a lot of the emergency lighting around the area and I used Whelen for a long time, they are expensive but make a great strobe kit. Within the last 18 months or so I have been using sho-me much more and they are much cheaper and they work great. If you go that route they have white plastic connectors at each bulb, if you cut them off and solder they are bulletproof.

    I would love a nice set but I don't exactly have the money for them. Just looking for a decent setup that would look good day and night.

    These originally were expensive but amazon is selling these two sets cheap cause theres only a couple left of each, with free shipping.

    What are you planning on using the strobe for?

    Autozone has some cheap strobes for 25-50 bucks. depends which one you buy.
