Client Profile: Fire Department Strobe Lights

Keeping with the spirit of giving back and honoring our heroes, this week’s blog is going to profile two different builds we completed for local fire departments on a pickup truck and an SUV.

Ford F-250

The first build was a Ford F-250 for the ETNA Fire Department. We used several of our products from the Wicked Store for a complete 360 build. In the grille, we mounted the TIR-3 strobe lights in white and red and the roof features the Atomic strobe lights in red and amber. We used LED lights inside the Ford badging in red that also feature a strobe function. The TIR-3 strobes are also mounted to the side of the truck, matching the grille. These strobe lights in this position are used for safety and visibility in intersections.

Moving to the rear of the truck, we installed our LED HAW Duo strobes in both the red and white lenses. These lights have replaced the factory lights and glow brighter for increased visibility. Our team also added a siren system with a variety of tones. Both the lighting and siren system are controlled with a handheld controller. Take a look at the video below to see these products in action.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Our Wicked Warnings team completed this on-site install on a Jeep Grand Cherokee for another local fire department. Inside the windshield we installed a blue LED strobe light bar with multiple patterns. The blue LED strobes will be used when responding to a EMS call. We also installed a red and white LED strobe package for fire calls, along with mounting strobe lights in the grille and reverse lens.

A discreet siren has been installed into this Jeep, with switches mounted in the cabin. The single-switch siren has over three different tones for the driver to use depending on the situation. Check out the impressive build on this Grand Cherokee in the 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!
