    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    You are right, that is the best spot for them and I still have been tossing around the idea of adding them. When I ran the wire for the front HAWs I ran extra just in case. :)

    Thanks for the input. I did not initially add the grill lights as I am more focused on rear warnings but I did run enough wire to add them easily later. It would be a great use of my spare T-3's.

    HAW in Explorer (2013) Headlight

    I put mine just where those are - right into the turn signal section of the headlight. It is a nice placement as it is visible from the front and side as well.

    HAW in Explorer (2013) Headlight

    Well I sucked it up and just drilled it. More info in my build thread: https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/2013-ford-explorer-amber-outfit.87903/post-660553

    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    HAWs are in the front turn signal section of the headlights and boy what a PAIN! I ended up comparing the Finding where to drill wasn't bad. Drilling wasn't bad. Getting all of the plastic bits out was a HUGE PAIN! All of the different areas, lenses, corners really made clean up take hours...

    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    After a few months of just the rear TA and a temporary control set up in the glove box it was time to change. I created a panel switch panel in the dash to control everything and making it all so much easier to reach. I then finished up the back half of the car's setup: Traffic Adviser in...

    HAW in Explorer (2013) Headlight

    Pulled the lights tonight thinking this would be fairly simple but the headlights are a double wall set up. I can't find any examples of others putting HAWs into the amber section of the headlight. Has anybody here done it? If so any recommendations where to put it?

    2013 POV ford explorer completion

    Very effective set up! So I am still weighing options of where to put my rear HAWs and I thought I was set on the reverse lights but yours looks good. How is the output during the day? The videos give it a bit to be desired but perhaps it is different in person?

    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    While I ran all of the wire for the traffic advisor, HAWs and side warning I only hooked up the TA as I wasn't ready to mount the others at this time. I am not completely happy with where the flasher control box is mounted but it is mounted where 1) it's easy to reach and 2) I can move it...

    I have a simple ShoMe 8 output flasher. Not ideal in all situations but for me it works great. I do feel a bit guilty setting the T-3's to steady burn but I'm happy the 8-head TA for under $300. :)

    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    A busy month but I finally put other house stuff aside today. That being said - holy crap I miss the simplicity cars had 20 years ago. Everything is overly complicated with this thing but I am sure I'm preaching to the choir here. My goal by the end of the day tomorrow is to have all of the...

    Ford PIU HAW option

    Take this with a grain of salt as I haven't done more than poked around my '13 but from reading and what I have seen there is not way to get to the HAW spots without pulling the lights.

    2013 Ford Explorer - Amber Outfit

    Managed to finish up the mount for the T-3 traffic advisor. Simply 1x aluminum square tubing and some brackets. After I took the first picture I realized I made the drops too short and had to add another 1". The whole thing will be able to be rotated so that when the lights can be seen when...
