Whelen UHF2150a HLF, sound off led inserts in the cargo lights and a ultralite12 back window, with a sound off front bar (taheo mounts). Has for as mounting the averngers in back,just my need to make some brackets up to mount them. Not sure never installed them in the back window. Hope it helps a little.

My silverado has the rear power sliding glass that goes to the passenger side of the vehicle but not the whole way.


Really need suggestions for good LED light in red for the back glass on each side.

budget? lighting requirements (i.e. 360 warning)? willingness to drill holes?


based off of what u have so far, i'd put 1 avenger on each side behind the b-post for side warning and (if you're willing to drill) put a lin6 on each side of the front fender or the bumper for intersection warning (if you dont want to drill there, SOS intersectors would be nice, IMO). for the front, i'd add a HLF (assuming ur allowed to), 1 lin6 on each side of the chevy logo on the grill, and either a SOS pinnacle or inner edge. since you'll have the 3rd avenger left over, u can either put it on the lower dash or sell it to fund other lighting


for the rear, i'd add a TLF and either 2 tir6 slimlighters on the rear headliner (obviously an inch or so away from the window to allow room for the sliding window) or an ultralite 8.


and obviously, if u have the $, u can add LAWs in the fog lights, linz6's on a rear LP bracket, LAWs in the rear, etc.


i'd hook up the siren to fedsig as124 speakers


good luck

Being an owner of one of these fine chevy pickups, I will chime in here. There are many little things in these pickups that make lighting fairly easy to mount with out going crazy drilling holes.


For the avengers in the rear, look in the headliner: there should be two retaining clips, one on either side. These are about 2 inches long and are plenty strong enough to hold single avengers, however you will need to extend you brackets with a nut and bolt and a piece of sheet metal in order to obtain the right positioning. Personally I had avengers in my rear windows and they just didn't work through the tint. I went instead with a dominator and I have been pleased ever since.


My overall setup is this:


front:


Slimlighter above RVM


TIR3's in top section of grille


Vertexes in the fogs


Whelen HLF


rear:


8 head dominator in rear window


SOS TLF


PM me if you want more install help or ideas....
