    Default strobe light kit in my 08 silverado 1500

    I have been looking at strobe kits cause I love the way they look in trucks but I don't want to pay some shop an extra 100 bucks to put them in for me. But I'm nervous about the 1" hole I have to drill, can anyone with experience with stobes guide me through the best way to install these, I wanna put two strobes in front and two in back, thanks for any help

    GO SLOW!
    I haven't put them in your model truck, but I did a 2010 F350 SD awhile back, and I'm pretty sure that headlight housing cost more than the strobe kit, my pay, any insurance the guy has, whatever story I could come up with...
    Plan out where you want the light (focal point of the reflector), how you're going to hold the light, how to drill into it, and the afore mentioned story to tell your significant other of why you need a new headlight. I also keep the shop vac and qtips handy to remove the plastic slag from inside the housing after you're done.

    Plan it out, go slow, hope for the best. Oh, and check local laws for having strobes in your vehicle.

    Welcome to Club, and good luck,

    I've used these on several atv's before. I have used several of the brands out there with little to no luck with them. They tend to leak or allow moister into the lenses or they simple stop working after some time. Personally i wouldn't bother with it unless your prepared to constantly tinker with them.
