10 Grille Strobe Lights & Accent Lighting Ideas

With Memorial Day upon us, we know you’re all looking forward to lighting up your favorite grills for a great backyard barbecue! At Wicked, we love lighting up vehicle grilles, and your vehicle’s grille is the perfect place to add emergency or accent lights that make an impact. Your car or truck’s grille may have unique challenges, such as size or space restrictions, active shutters, or even specific shapes to work around. Whether you’re looking for additional emergency lighting, extra work light, or even accent lighting in the front of your vehicle, you’ve come to the right place! Our collection of LED strobe lights and safety products work perfectly for various vehicles. See some of our builds featuring grille strobe lights and grille accent lighting below!

1. 2019 Super Duty F-450 Amber & White Strobe Lights – Platinum Grille

This 2019 Super Duty F-450 has an amber and white strobe light package. In the front of the truck, we used four of our Razor LED strobe lights within the grille and synchronized them in an amber-white X-pattern. The Razor LED is a slim strobe light that perfectly fits this Platinum grille. We used 90-degree brackets to mount the grille strobe lights, and we have a tutorial for the grille install here!

2. 2022 Super Duty Platinum Truck Grille Strobe Lights

This 2022 Super Duty Platinum truck features four of our amber-white LIN-6 strobe lights in the front grille. We’ve recently upgraded the amber-white LIN-6 to our new LIN-8. You can complete this same installation with the LIN-8, and you can watch how we installed the grille lights here.

3. 2020 F-450 Dually Limited 4-Corner Grille Strobe Light Install

This 2020 F-450 Super Duty Limited build features 4 of our LIN-8 in the corners of the grille. You can see that while the grille styles can vary between the Super Duty models, this light is typically an excellent choice for Super Duty grilles. Watch how we complete this install here!

4. 2020-Newer Super Duty Grille Top Corner Grille Strobe Light Install

This video will take you behind the scenes and show you how to install our TIR-3 strobe light along the top edges of a 2020 or newer Super Duty grille. This grille strobe light location is slightly different from the others as they are mounted right underneath the hood.

5. New F-250 Super Duty with Slick Stick Grille Light Bar Mount

This Super Duty build features our popular Wicked Slick Stick LED Light Bar mounted behind the front grille. We had to make a few slight modifications to mount the light bar to the core support behind the grille. However, this installation provides a ton of forward-facing warning light and great usable work light when using the bar’s flood mode.

6.2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 Grille Strobe Light Installation

This 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 displays our TIR-3 mounted within the grille. We’ll show you how to mount the TIR-3 strobe light with our TIR-3 90 Degree bracket. This installation will also work with our popular LIN-6 or LIN-8 strobe lights.

7. GMC Sierra 1500 Tech Tip: How to Install Razor LED Strobe Light in Grille

This installation features our Razor LED strobe light within a GMC Sierra 1500 grille. We mounted the Razors right next to the GMC logo using a 90 Degree Bracket. You don’t need to remove the grille for this installation. Watch the video for more details!

Grille Backlighting for Cars or Trucks

Grille backlighting is a great way to highlight your vehicle’s unique features and add a “wow” factor! Throughout the years, we’ve backlit various grilles for our customers. See some of our grille backlighting installs below!

8. Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat RGB Grille Backlight and Interior Lighting

This build features a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with a multi-colored RGB strip backlighting the grille and lighting the car’s interior. The lights are remote-controlled, will change colors, and feature a few different patterns.

9. How To Backlight Grille on 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD (TUTORIAL)

This build is all about the accent lighting! The video features a 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, and we backlit the Chevrolet grille letters in amber. Check out the video to see how we completed this install!

10. 2021 Chevrolet Silverado RGB Grille Backlighting and Emergency Flashing Lights

This build is unique and features backlighting and some emergency lights within the grille. We installed our LIN-8 strobe light within the grille above the Chevrolet logo, and we used an RGB kit for this backlight effect. You can see more detail about the backlight installation here!

Please remember that we don’t sell any backlighting kits on our website at this time. If you’re interested in backlighting your grille, you can schedule an appointment with us by emailing info@wickedwarnings.com, or we may be able to special-order the parts for you.

Video Demonstration of Wire Swap Installation for Auto Flasher Kits - Molex Connector Pin Removal & Replacement

What are the Wicked Auto Flasher Kits & how do they work?

Wicked Warnings has been around since 2005 with stellar references and we have been using our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) module since early 2016 with zero reported vehicle failures. There is no known risk to using any factory lighting as flashers that we are aware of. Of course, all your factory lights will always revert to factory function when the strobes are not being used.

Many of our builds feature a combination of factory lighting as well as purpose-built emergency lights to create a more effective display, so we urge you to consider more than just factory strobe lighting on your build. We have many options available to supplement the factory lighting.

How does the Auto Flasher connect to my truck anyway?

We have 3 connection methods used in our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) kits. The way that we manipulate the factory lighting is through the wires. We DO NOT reprogram any of the computers. Everything we do is easily reversible, and any number of individual kits can be combined onto a single switch if desired. There is no single kit to flash all factory lights, as we must retain circuit individuality. The following three methods are used to interface with the factory wires.

  • Wire Cut: In certain lights, like the white cargo light by the third brake, the only way is to cut a single wire (at this time). We understand that some people are uncomfortable cutting wires and we are working hard to offer “cut-free” solutions as fast as we can. This is how some of the current website kits are sold. Sometimes, this is the only option to achieve the desired display.
  • Wire Swap NO CUT: This is by far our favorite solution and how most of the new generation kits will be made if possible. Wire Swap is how ALL the Headlight and Taillight kits are going to be made for the FORD and many GM trucks. We are working to update the current website options to this new “wire swap” kit and will continue noting any changes on the product online as they happen. It really is just as easy as swapping a wire. Again, the kits will have notes in the description stating which version they are. Click here to watch a video showing the Wire Swap method.
  • (NEW & COMING SOON) Plug N Play Extensions: Plug N Play extensions can be purchased for an extra cost. Please bear with us as these are all handmade and fairly difficult to source parts for. We have some availability and are waiting on some parts for others.

We hope this helps to answer any questions about our Auto Flasher Kits and hope you enjoy these products!
