STROBES: INSTALLING IN HEADLIGHHT HOUSINGS
Tips for placing hidden strobes in late-model Dodge Ram Pickup headlight/taillight housings
One of the best locations for mounting strobes is in headlights and taillights because the reflectors provide maximum illumination.
Installing hidden strobes is simple enough: Cut the proper size hole in the housing, insert the strobe unit and run the wires to the proper location.
This is easy in most pickup headlight/taillight assemblies.
But the later-model Dodge/Ram pickups have a headlight assembly that’s inside a second housing.
This requires a few extra steps to ensure the strobe is 1) mounted properly, and 2) sealed from the elements.
