2. mpower® 3-inch or 4-inch Strobe Light

The mpower strobe lights by SoundOff Signal are extremely compact and bright perimeter lights. The next-generation design and mounting options allow you to mount this light nearly anywhere on your vehicle. We offer the 3-inch and 4-inch mpower lights in the quick-mount configuration. They also feature the popular steady white flood mode option which is perfect for added work light. Read more about the mpower 3 and mpower 4 in our online store!

3. Raptor

The Raptor LEDs make great strobe lights for plowing! The Raptor is a very robust, large profile light that features a stainless steel bezel. The bezel is especially useful for protecting the light head from salt and snow in the winter! This light is perfect for larger trucks, larger plow equipment, and trucks with salters.

4. Thin-X

The Thin-X LIN dual-color LED strobe light is a great option for plow trucks because it’s extremely versatile.

We’ve used the Thin-X within truck grilles, along toolboxes, in truck fender badges, just to name a few. Don’t let the thin design fool you; this light delivers superior warning power when and where you need it most! View or purchase the Thin-X here.

5. Thin-X Strip Light

The Thin-X Strip light features a thin, modern and low-profile design with an extremely bright light output. We love to install this light under tailgates, though there are many different applications for this strip light. The Thin-X Strip is available in two different sizes and the flash patterns allow for great long-distance warning. This strip light also includes the popular flood mode feature, which is perfect for added work lighting when you need it! Check out the Thin-X Strip in our online store!

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Z71 Snow Plow Strobe Lights

This video features snow plow strobe lights on a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Z71 truck. From the truck’s front, you can see one of our Auto Flasher Kits strobing the forward white mirror spotlights and another kit flashing the roof lights. You can also see our LIN-8 strobe lights mounted to the plastic support behind the grille. We mounted our Raptor LED strobe lights high up on the salter in the back of the truck. We chose the Raptor LED because it is a larger and more robust light with a stainless steel bezel to protect the light from damage. The Raptor also features the popular flood mode option. We’ve also added our LIN-8 in the back step pockets. All of the strobe lights for plowing are activated using the factory auxiliary switches.

2020 Super Duty F-450 Snow Plow Warning Lights

This video features a 2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 truck with a plow strobe lights package. In the front of this truck, you can see our Auto Flasher Kits flashing the roof lights and the amber mirror lights. You can also see the 3-inch mpower amber-white strobe lights by SoundOff Signal in the grille and the Whelen 23″ Mini LED Bar on the roof. We custom fabricated an 8-inch stand to raise the light bar higher up for longer distance warning.

From the sides of the truck, you can see our Thin-X LIN series lights in the badge flashing an amber-white pattern. Around the back, we did have limited space due to the fold-down dump body, so we decided to use the 3-inch mpower warning lights again on the rear top corners of the body. The mpower lights are mounted to face both the sides and the rear. We used the VHB mount for this location as well with the adhesion promoter. We also lined the top of the lights with RTV silicone for added protection. Under the salter, we mounted two Diode Dynamics SS3 floodlights. These lights are very high quality and provide a significant amount of usable work light. We used the factory auxiliary switches to control all of the snowplow warning lights throughout this truck.

Along the side of the truck, you can see our Thin-X LIN Series flashing within the F-250 badge in amber and white. Towards the back, you can see our new LIN-8 strobe light flashing in an amber-white pattern.

We’ve installed two Thin-X LIN strobe lights on the plastic filler panel under the tailgate in the back of the plow truck. The Thin-X lights are synchronized in an alternating amber-white pattern. We used Auxiliary Switch 2 to control all of the plow truck warning lights.

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!
