Holy smokes, it’s about time somebody started offering factory strobe lights for trucks. We’ve seen HORRIBLE installations on the aftermarket. Ford is offering these amber LED strobe lights on every 2016 F-Series Super Duty truck for the reasonable price of $700.
After decades of protected status, Ford has been coming after the aftermarket like crazy with its own line of truck equipment, including racks, storage boxes and now, lighting equipment.
Sure, you can buy a strobe light fixture for around $30 each, but the question about where to mount it, and how to wire it to an ever-more complicated wiring harness is a challenge.
The bonus for truck buyers who opt for the $700 option from Ford is that (A) they can roll the cost right into the truck loan from the get-go, and (B) the lights and all their associated wiring is protected under the manufacturer’s original warranty at no additional cost.
The front- and rear-mounted amber-lens strobe lights that have been evaluated for any applicable regulations and industry standards, can be seen as far as 1,000 feet away during the day and as far as a mile away at night.
