        Go there. Ask questions. They are light fanatics over there. Far too much wacker for me over there, but they may be able to help you out.

        saves us all the headache of the same old thread, too

          Thanks for all the help everyone. Most of my searches that i tried and found were lights that were outta my price range. but in recent months I have acquired a decent set of 4 (8 led head) {4 red led's and 4 white led's} in each unit for 200 bucks. They were all brand new fresh in the package and were only 49.99 each. So thanks again everyone for the help.

              Firestorm2011 - first of all you need to check with the State Motor Vehicle Code, in which you live, to see IF you are allowed to have such lights on your private vehicle.

              Every state has their own rules to this matter. Not all firefighters, career or volunteer are allowed to install lights or may be limited to the type, quanity and where they be mounted.

              As others have said, do a search, on these forums, on the subject and you will see many posts, rules and other comments concerning this.

                    And I was supposed to be nice. Screw nice. You worthless, ignorant, snotnosed, rude, wannabee punk go slap your crappy lights on your POV so you too can go "CODE 3" and stand there (if you make it without wrecking or killing anyone) with your finger in your tucas trying to look like a big deal being a yard maggot.

                    OOOPS, sorry everyone just kinda slipped out there.

                        Gosh, Mighty Firestorm I thought you had declared this thread dead after you expained how you know everthing in a touchingly consending manner.

                          Wow. Is that how it works? You simply declare it dead and no one else replies?

                          Anyways, remember, you get what you pay for. A dirt cheap LED is going to still be a dirt cheap LED.
