Strobe Light Kit For F-150

I read on Fleetowner that Ford is coming out with a factory-installed strobe warning LED kit for the F-150. It's supposed to be no drill and only for fleet customers. Off option for fleets to buy IMO.

It comes with a limited 3 year/ 36,000 mile warranty and I'm not sure if the average buyer can get one.

You can likely buy the whole assembly as a replacement and install it yourself. That's the only way I can see any random person being able to get it. The other is waiting for a fleet vehicle to show up on the used market, then someone removing the LED kit assembly.

It's supposed to look like this and it'll make your F150 all the more visible at night or when there's poor visibility.

You just have to make sure to not use it on the street since most police forces will ticket you for it, you'll often get lucky the first time with a warning. But if it persist then they could have you remove it. So just make sure to use it mindfully.

Actually come to think about it, just about every other service out there, law enforcement, road maintenance, etc all use lighting of a different color or just have a very small number using yellow and if they are its at a level where there's no authoritative power or little if any, nothing significant. So on the street this shouldn't be a problem.

These seem more like a distraction for oncoming traffic at night and really, if you're not using the F150 for a certain service that requires the light then there's really no point of adding those strobe lights.

If you're using it how it should be used when absolutely needed, then there won't be a problem. Just think of the times you'll need it and it's not going to be impacting many on the road.

That's legit all there is to it. This isn't a trick question or a hidden rule. If you're not using the truck for some sort of service where you need people to be tentative to your movements, keep the lights off. Simple.

Using it in situations you're not supposed to can get you in trouble but in this market majority of folks are responsible which naturally comes with an older demographic, the whole novelty of flashing lights doesn't fascinate many of them. But year improper use of these lights can get you pulled over and ticketed.

If we could get them to put it in red and blue... we could try to run something like DMX did at the airport
