    Default LED's

    Hey All,
    Thinking about getting some LED's for my truck.
    I just bought a new truck and want to keep it as low profile as possible. Strobe hideaways are out of the question, I feel they are too expensive. Ive been looking at a LED kit, I want to know weather anyone has any CONSTRUCTIVE or HELPFUL pointers. Check out the link to what I am considering getting. Let me know.

    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    The only nice thing about LEDs are that they are VERY bright directional lights - that is, they are less visible from the sides - although there are different lenses since they came out on the market which are used to disperse the light to the sides.

    Additionally, they draw less amperage - which might be a problem for your car - depending on your alternator.

    I would suggest going with a dual solution - strobes PLUS LEDs like I have, then you get the best of both worlds.

    If cost is an option, save all your money, and buy a LED dash light, it is arguably the best light you can have if you're short on cabbage.

    Those Sho-mes you are looking at are great- they are older technology than the talons but they look great and are easy to mount.

    Lots of fed vehicles have em - they are an all around winner and last forever.

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    From what I understand only the moderators can do that ie Webteam...but you could delete your initial post and just put something blank I suppose....
