    This will be a general purpose kit to carry on the road but also I have had to use it for other folks as well, It helps to have lights for the truck and trailer. And the greatest complaint with trailers is other drivers steal the lights ,And the D O T aint playing games about missing lights ,I hate to wait for hours for a repair shop to put a single light in or fix a broken wire that costs me money and running time,and costs you more for what you buy. The kit is not vehical specific in it can also be carried and should be in everyones car/truck this kit can be put togher for less than $30.00 and is a GOD send when needed.

    I made a light bar for hay wagons when i was drawing out of the urban areas. Which are over whelming me again actually. The unit is completely independant of the vehicle except for power and you could toss a charged battery in and run it free of the vehicle power too. Normally it just used two clamps to get power to the controls, which I had on a frame mounted in a Military surplus FAL mag pouch with velcro straps. It has flasher units built in switches for everything to control it seperately or you can plug it into the truck plug. No side markers but they could be added. The light bar strapped to the wagon with a Ford seatbelt on each side. Probably needs some repairs as I haven't used it in a while. I do have a magnetic light kit from Wally World too.
