Federal signal jetstream in amber with 3 rotators and rear wig-wag


corner strobes,


Code 3 dual head strobe on dash.


Federal Signal 6 head arrow stick, using a code 3 headlight flasher, (I didn't have a controller so I improvised)

Cool truck.
The rear HAW are on slow pattern I suppose? ;)



thank's for the reply. but i'm new to this board and I don't know what HAW means, if your talking about the arrow, it just a one speed flasher wired into it. I chose which light pattern by direct wire each bulb to one side of the flasher or the other, I didn't have access to a control flasher to make arrow work. maybe in the future i will get a controller cheap.but for now I think i made a good flash pattern,

I like the music, LOL!!!


Other then the rust, nice truck and setup.


People down here in Texas generally have never heard the term, "rusty but trusty" since this is a northern term used when selling a rusted vehicle. Seen that many times in the news paper when I lived up in Wisconsin 12 years ago.

Good set up, plain, simple and "mission-oriented".

Thanks thegatekeeper,


Now you guys got me thinking, do I really need grill lights? yes or no. I'm not responding to problems 99 percent of my assist is drive upon , I c I stop, so really I don't need lots of forward lighting, might put something on side of tool box for side exposure, what do you think. someone suggested maybe lights by my liscence plate, can do red or amber rear, and amber white front, just prefer to stay amber. let me know what ya think.
