I need to outfit my Ram 1500 with OSHA approved lighting as cost effectively as possible but not utilizing a roof mounted light bar because it’s my personal vehicle.

Who has done this? Are the Feniex or Whalen lights worth the higher price? China/amazon have some eeekit lights at an amazing price, but are they utter junk, or will they last a while.

im thinking a strobesnmore tailgator for the rear, a few 4 or6 led surface mounts for the sides and grill, and a couple hideaways for the corners.

All advice/ideas welcome.

My old man and I did up our plow trucks with the Chinese Amazon lights for fun. They work fine and hold up to the weather for a few years at least but when you're holding them you can tell they're way cheaper than a name brand unit. For looking like a tard in a blizzard I love them, for a real work truck/potential safety device I'd spend the money on whalens
 
If roof mounting isn't an option, you can go with a headache rack and mount one there.
 
I have a $30 led magnet one on my roof from Amazon. It's bright and it works just fine.

roof, headache rack, pretty much anything that screams construction truck is out. It’s my POV, that I prefer to keep looking normal.

I fuckin love it. I only have one issue with it and its fixable. These have a option to be a light bar. Or just leaving the white on constant no flash. The fit close to the window but not close enough not to cause the dash to light up. I think a larger rubber to go around the edge would fix that. Like a door rubber.

I do not have them because my bafck window is not visible but we run 2 of the fusion 400 light bars in the back window on the admin trucks The ones with a sliding window and the one or two with out run the 600 as thats almost exactly the width of the back window

The controller is pretty tits too. hook it up to a constant relays on board. https://www.feniex.com/sirens-controllers/4200-mini-controller

mine functions are, strobes on, Step out hands up (white light bar), Rear lights (have eccos in the back), Left, right, program (change the pattern think there is like 100)


We use a federal signal bracket that goes up under the headliner. hangs in front of back window. So the light hangs just below the black strip around your back window. up and out of the way. Ill post a photo of my lights on
This bracket
Federal Signal SLB-FRD15ND


youll haft to google it to see how it mounts exactly all the publications i can find are in PDF

Total cost to do front window windsheild mount, controller and rear bars is about 1400 bucks
 
Only photos I can find
and I seem to snap the phot when the lights are flashing on white.
