headlights/cab lights/strobes

Hi all.
Im looking to add cab lights to my truck as well as do the clear headlight mod.
Is there a certain combination of brands that looks the best? I've looked all over the org and cant really seem to find an answer to this seems that LMC is popular though. The next question though is that will standard cab lights hold up as strobes or is that a whole different ball game. Thanks

I would get headlights off of ebay, there is a good selection. As far as cab lights if you are going with clear headlights, LMC has clear cab lights and they are LED. That would match up nicely. Can't help ya on the strobe part, haven't got a clue.

I am not sure on the brand, bought them off ebay. And no they are just stock Ford clearance lights. I would like to get the LMC lights someday. My headlights are smoked btw, not clear.

So heres my question I guess...
If I were to get the LMC cab lights could I just get a strobe control module like this..

http://www.amazon.com/Streetglow-ANSC5V2-Strobe-Control-Module/dp/B0002S9ZSI
and also splice into my turn signals would that work?
Or would it mess with the factory wiring?
Thanks

Well I checked the laws and there doesnt seem to be any problem with strobe lights as long as they're amber. The only reason I want them is for escorting farm equiptment and hauling some stuff down the road. With as clueless as some drivers are these days I like to have as many lights as possible.
