    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    It just struck me to mention this here as it is an applicable tool for the topic. If you haven't already checked out the Lemur Light I have been looking at them as a solution to portable lighting on the roadside that also help set a scene perimeter. Think floodlight and LED flare in one package...

    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    @pdk9 Certainly the easiest is a mini-bar and I have toyed with getting an Acari mount for a top mount searchlight/flood. My only hesitation has been the desire to stay low-profile with this being my personal vehicle as well. I think the happy median somewhere in the middle is where I will land...

    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    @CustomAJ All excellent point/ideas. I think the back window is my biggest issue for sure. I do also have a power-slide rear-window so I had toyed with the idea of finding a way to mount the bar at the bottom of the rear window instead which I think would give me a better chance of spacing it...

    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    Sure, it's a little open ended because I was hoping to get some opinions on what setups would be most effective and such but I had grabbed some generic photos of an F150 and this was roughly what I had pictured mentally: This is what I have landed on as of right now but I'm not sure if I want...

    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    @CustomAJ Thanks for the response, I appreciate the insight. I am definitely edging towards the Fenix camp at the moment unless someone has a horror story that deters me. I have done basic install before and I really just want to get some opinions on if the appropriate setup would be overly...

    Your Opinion: Setting up an F-150

    I have a 2016 F-150 SuperCrew that I am looking to setup with a Amber/White setup for roadside assistance and that leads me to ask a few questions from the wealth of knowledge and wide variety of experiences that reside here in the forums. While I want to do the project right there are several...

    Dallas-Fort Worth Upfitter

    Looking to setup some lighting on my 2016 F-150 and wanted to see if anyone had knowledge of reputable upfitters in the DFW area. Wanting to do a fairly straightforward setup with Ambers for roadside assistance and the like.

    Mounting a Federal Q in a Ford C8000

    I will have to get a look at a current one somehow and see how the brake solenoid works on it. I'll post updates here as I go just in case anyone else can someday benefit from it.

    Mounting a Federal Q in a Ford C8000

    I was doing some digging and found this article: https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/federal-signal-q2b-into-a-bumper-install.45722/ Looks like the guy to ask is @Torpedo but he hasn't been active since '16

    Mounting a Federal Q in a Ford C8000

    Okay, I'll have to just bite the bullet and get the bracket. In my understanding the brake is in the pedestal so the bolts and mounting for the Q-MT will use the mounting points for the brake/pedestal

    Mounting a Federal Q in a Ford C8000

    Excellent, I saw this when I was looking at wiring diagrams but somehow blanked on it now that I have gotten around to installing. Do you know how the brake solenoid interfaces with the bracket? I haven't been able to find a picture or diagram showing the brake installed, only the Q itself.

    Part# For AeroDynic Brackets

    Thanks to everyone for the info, it looks like I have a couple of leads on what I need. I appreciate the help.

    Mounting a Federal Q in a Ford C8000

    The Q currently has a pedestal I believe just from looking at it, however the siren itself was installed this way prior so I could be wrong about that. I have a post about getting it working where you can see the setup here...

    Part# For AeroDynic Brackets

    Thanks for taking a look. The truck is an '85 and the lights are original as far as I know so it may be that the design was discontinued before '94 I suppose. I appreciate you taking the time.

    Part# For AeroDynic Brackets

    I am trying to locate 2 sets of mounting feet to install the pair of AeroDynic mini's that originally set atop the engine I am currently restoring. I was able to get the lights with the truck but they have been stored apart for many years and the brackets are MIA. I wanted to see if anyone...
