Client Profile: CVF Plow Truck Lighting

As many of you know, Wicked Warnings is a proud supporter of our nation’s heroes, which is why this plow truck lighting project meant a great deal to our team. With the holiday season quickly approaching, we wanted to give back by helping those men and women who protect our freedom.

Cord Vanderpool Foundation (CVF), located in Orland Park, IL, is a private foundation that assists disabled and elderly veterans with snow removal during the winter. This specific client reached out to us because they needed to upfit their plow truck with strobe lights in preparation for the upcoming winter. The Wicked Warnings team generously donated their time and resources to upfit their Chevy with the necessary plow truck lighting for safety. Our team was also able to advise CVF regarding current laws and safety regulations to create a custom plow truck lighting system.

Plow Truck Lighting Build

Let’s take a look at the build. This client requested a clean, drill-free install on their new 2017 Chevy Silverado. This plow will be primarily clearing driveways of the veterans who are unable to remove the snow themselves. We installed several of our Wicked Warnings products found in our online store. We wanted to give the roof has a professional-looking 360 profile, so we installed the Acari Low-Pro mount and the Phoenix Fusion mini LED bar. Next, we put red LED strobes in the brake lights to supplement the roof lighting. To see the final build and our products in action, take a look at our video below.

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!
