I have a 2003 Ext cab GMC sierra truck that ill be using for volunteer fire response mostly to the station, i have a sound off mini pinnacle mag mount on top right now in amber that is going to be staying there. so I'm thinking something mostly interior, it doesn't need to be anything to special or over the top as the station is only about 8 blocks from my house and mostly residential streets, but i also work in the other town over during the day so ill probably be responding from there a lot and i may also be responding to the scene.


For the front I'm thinking...


4 (led)hide-a-ways, 2 in the fog lights, 2 in the running lights(maybe?)


Something in the grill (suggestions welcome)


Something headliner mounted but not a full interior bar(suggestions welcome)


For the rear I'm thinking...


4 (led) hide-a-ways in an ex pattern in the turn signal and back up light areas.


Something in the rear window(suggestions welcome)


And something around the license plate.


For the sides i don't have a clue to what i want to do or if i should do anything at all?


Im open to any and suggestions and this is just in the planning stages as of right now.


I am able to run blue,white, and amber to the rear.


Thanks in advice, Justin.

Why do you run an amber mini lightbar when you can have blue in IA?

I haul a lot of things, from scrap metal to soccer goals to cars to boats, and alot of is overweight or oversize. so ill have to slow down and alot of times be an obstruction to traffic. i would rather not use my blues to warn traffic except for fire department use.

Front:


Four pimp pods in grill, $77 for a pair


led hide aways, fog lights and DRL, preferably in the oem light bulb hole, because they look the best when placed there! i say go with the universal hide away from soundoff $69 per head


Dual avenger, talon, or viper on the dash. about $200


Rear:


Microman 40 inch led bar! $200


Sound off led hideaways two in reverse housings, two in taillights $68 a head


Two pimp pods on license plate bracket, $77 for pods about $20 for bracket


That setup would run about $903! :D

If I remember correctly, he has x4 SOS Ghosts R/R in the grill, x4 HAWs up front, and a SOS Interior Pinnacle all red in the headliner. I don't remember the back, other than I think he had some HAWs to the rear. Maybe some LEDs somewhere in the rear, but I don't remember.

Ya you cant get by with blue for that stuff. That makes more sense.
