need help with aux. lights.

so i got a great job this winter plowing developmnents for toll brothers. i need some kind of auxilary lights for the truck, in the past i haven't really needed warning lights for the type of plowing i do, but the residential roadways are different. i do not want something too visible when not turned on. i am pretty sure i want strobe lights in the headlights. i did a search on google and found alot of choices, priced anywhere from $20-$250 with a strobe light controller. does anyone have strobes or any recomemdations on what i should get? thanks.

I got 8 Whelen 90 Watt strobes, 4 front and 4 rear, have the two strobe packs set behind the rear seat and run them off of the first 2 Upfitter switches. Whelen is pretty much the best you can get for strobes. You may also want to look at a small LED lightbar in amber. I'd say go with 4 strobes rear & 2 front, 90 watt power supply, and get either a rotating amber light or a mini strobe bar for the roof, something that is removeable if you don't want it up there all the time.

I don't think you want your headlights to strobe when plowing maybe your marker lights.and when you plug the plow electrical plug in it bypasses your headlights right.

yes when i flip the switch on for the plow lights its turns just the truck headlights off. i want the strobe kit installed on the truck. since the truck lights will be off the stobes will be visible without the extra light shining (headlights). know what i mean?

I'll tell ya the Whelen 90watt strobes are extremely bright and will definitely let others know to stay away.
