Guys that work on road crews, or any sort of construction site for that matter, need the ultimate in visibility, night and day, on their trucks for safety purposes. In the past, aftermarket setups for the kind of strobe light kits that are the preferred choice for this level of high-visibility on the job site have been the answer. They worked pretty good, too. The downside was that some of these strobe light kits were clunky, didn’t fit well into the vehicle, and things got complicated when it came time for service.
If you’re looking at one of the new 2016 Ford Super Duty pickups, getting a strobe light setup is no longer a hassle. Ford is now offering an available factory-installed strobe warning LED light kit for all models of 2016 F-Series Super Duty trucks used by utility, road construction, or municipal crews. The no-drill strobe light system option carries a warranty, and the truck is not susceptible to corrosion that can be a result of a poor aftermarket installation.
The front- and rear-mounted amber-lens strobe lights can be seen as far as 1,000 feet away during the day and as far as a mile away at night. The forward-facing signals are high-mounted with metal brackets at the rear edge of the hood for maximum visibility, and the rear-facing signals are mounted on either side of the center highmounted stop lamp and provide up to 180 degrees of illumination.
A replacement trim panel with a pre-mounted on-off switch fits into the existing auxiliary switch port, customer-programmable flash-pattern capability allows the system to meet specific fleet requirements, and the system is based on weather-resistant, durable, low-power-need LEDs. The best part: It’s all serviceable at Ford dealerships nationwide, and backed by a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty. Talk to your local Ford truck dealer about all the details.
