If you are interested I can get you the contact info to get a panel like that... It's a friend of mine on the Avalanche forum that makes them... He can make just about anything you can dream up...

I drive a Dodge Dakota, and that spot is taken up by the Overhead Console display which I use quite often so I am not interested, but thanks for the offer.

Ok Update on the truck..


Decided that i wanted a full bar back on the truck..so while scoping the forum found a very clean strobe bar (thanx TVFD39). FS Jetstrobe, TD, Alleys, Rear flashers. Im very happy with it. Myself and triton boulder installed it a week ago just now getting the pics up. Currently the TD and Alleys are not hooked up yet. Working on that another day. Might even add a TCL to the center but unsure as of yet. But anyway heres the pics..


let me/us know what you think!

We've done some new stuff and figured we'd post some new pics up...


First, we set the 500s in the grill to a solid clash pattern. Also added a TCL to the JetStream. And added a Code 3 LED T/A.


Here are some pics...

There's a strong possibility of an Update for this truck in the near future... Stay Tuned...

I'd love to see some hideaways in the fog lights and reverse. A buddy of mine installed a pair of ions underneath the mirrors angled slightly at a 45 looks great for intersections.

We updated the Silverado the other day. We changed the 10-Strobe JetStrobe for a 12-Strobe ULTRA Edge... We mounted it last week, but ran out of time, so it didn't get wired up, especially since he wanted to upgrade his custom 4-switch panel for a switchbox.


First off, we took out the Overhead Console and removed the custom 4-switch plate and installed a Galls XL-400 Switchbox The switchbox slides into the opening of the console nice and snugly. And to make it secure, we made some mounting "straps" for it with an old clothes hanger. Theres one "strap" on each side that mount from the switchbox to a screw hols on the side of the overhead console, and one longer one that runs off the 2 center holes on the switch box to a screw hole near that moutn screw for the overhead console. This thing is 100% SOLID!


Pardon the wiring, this switchbox has a lot of them... lol (Click for Larger Image)

And here's some pics of the bar itself. We have it currently all blue, but we might change the rear flashers to amber in the future... (Click for Larger Image)

Looks great, but I loved the amber rear flashers on the JetStrobe. Those tir3s need to be relocated so they can be used 100% of the time, as opposed to 2% of the time.

They are installed there for when he has his tonneau cover up and the lightbar is blocked...

I always love a good strobe lightbar. :thumbsup: The only thing I'd do differently is have some amber in back, and rearrange the front so that you have the takedowns dead center, and the duplex sections in the outboard positions next to the corner strobes. The halogen flashers seem too close together to be effective, they work best with some separation between them. But that's a pretty minor concern, and the rest of it is excellent. :yes:

The flashers aren't Duplex, they are split level 400s... And if we move the TDs to the center, they become less effective... We might possibly put the split 400s out nexe to the corners, but it is what it is currently... LoL We'd actually like to change the halogen flashers front and rear with LEDs... But again, nothing is really planned for the near future, with both of us running around like crazy with our personal lives... lol

Well, triton911bj decided that it was time for a new vehicle, so he's trading in the Silverado... It's been completely stripped and is now quite naked.. lol
