as the topic states, i just got my 99 f250 work truck, and its going to serve dual purposes, it has a detachable plow on the front , and cabinets around the sides,


now it will be used for mostly 2 things,


1-snow plowing and


2- going on ems calls for my volly ambulance


so im not quite sure what to do with it,


currently it was 2 amber linz6 in the rear and 2 strobes in the front, now i know it has alot of potential, but not sure what to do


and also i have an old halogen ambulance vista bar laying around i may want to throw on, but i may want to convert part of it to strobe or led, and put some stuff to the rear of the bar


soo yea i need ideas .. thanks

Budget, colors?


I'd do two grille lights, windsheld LEDs of some sort, a traffic advisor in the rear, strobes in the rear, lic. plate LEDs, and some sort of side warning too

Maybe put red or blue (whichever color volunteer EMTs use in your state) on the top level of the bar, and add amber LEDs to the bottom level for plowing.

ok well i have a vista bar from an old ambulance, in ny we use red and white,


the bar is red/clear/amber/red


the rear of the bar is empty due to the fact that it was an ambulance bar, currently as stated before i have corner strobes in the front and 2 linz6 in the back,


i was thinking of having the amber front flashers go on when the bar is on and also the when plowing having them flash and have the clear stingers on when plowing


i have an amber single talon,and 2 amber lin6,i may use, but i am wondering what to use and set up since im using it for ems and plowing

Strobes in the headlights and tailights. The amber lin 6 in the rear, one on each side on the cabinets in the back. Looks good there a buddy of mine has it. I'd say light bar, go amber since you want 360 warning when plowing, and a dash light and grill lights for your response. Just an idea that wont cost you too much money if you are on a budget

well time to hold off on the plans, truck is down for a while, something is wrong with the brake and the tranny, hopefully going to have it on the road within 2 weeks, then going to be doing it up,
