what did you do? I need some ideas.
A good plan if you drive on the street minimally.A single amber light that comes on with the ignition so you can't forget to turn it on. Ebay has LED ones with a cover, so you can put the cover on if you're going to drive it on the public roads. It needs to be bright so in heavy dust, the guy behind you can see you.
Is that the PCI Race air single? If so how do you like it?
Yes it's the one from PCI that's under a hundred bucks, I put a splitter on it for both helmets and it does fine. The other ones are a little quieter, but for the money I'm good with this one for now.Is that the PCI Race air single? If so how do you like it?
Trying to figure out if I need to speed $400 on one of the “high end” pumpers or not.
Thanks, that is good to know. I am looking at the $150 PCI and the $150 Parker Pumper Pro Lite as possible options.Yes it's the one from PCI that's under a hundred bucks, I put a splitter on it for both helmets and it does fine.

Mounting it is a little bit weird since it has a bottom outlet, the other ones are probably a little bit more versatile as far as mounting locations go.

If I were to do it over I would probably grab the one with the Dual Outlet, seems like it would make for a cleaner install and a little bit more airflow.Thanks, that is good to know. I am looking at the $150 PCI and the $150 Parker Pumper Pro Lite as possible options.
Yea I was looking at that one or the "Big Single" which is that same dual motor with just 1 outlet. On second thought just doing the dual outlet from the start is probably a better idea. A cap is like $2.. a new dual outlet hat is probably $50 to convert the "Big Single" to dual outlet down the road.
Yea your baller setup is plenty bright in all conditions. I can see them over 1/4 mile away at night in the dust.I have followed LOF car and his chase is plenty bright especially on seizure mode. You can’t see his red lights at all especially in thick dust in the am or afternoon.
I have two rigid dually with amber bulbs and lenses and I believe you can see pretty far
@LargeOrangeFont can you see mine from far? View attachment 811852

I bought one very similar to these, wired it in line and keep the remote velcroed on the inside of the glove box. Has worked great so far... they can be steady on, fade-in fade-out, or flashing. You can then control brightness and speed of each mode. View attachment 811938I don't think these flash strobe
Correct.So the white wire section goes inline from battery to LED. Then only use remote for on off and strobe? Interesting and easy
Yes, and in theory you could use a module like that to control any pod or light bar. Obviously if you're powering something with more draw you would need a heavier-duty unit, but these small ones should be fine for a couple of PODS or a very small light bar.So basically any LED pod light can strobe? This wont ruin the light?
So I bought the one like LOL has. I wanted to go with one of the Rigid or Baja Designs, I like the clean look of those, but I cheaped out.
The light is really bright, like hurt your eyes bright at night. I wired the red brake lights to full time power. I wont say it blazes but it's close.
Make sure you get the extension cord, not even close to reaching the dash on my two seater...
Just gotta go try it out in the desert now!
You are really deep in the hole now Glad you are having some fun tinkering and personalizing it.I installed one similar to LOF's. Amber, red and white strobe. Mine also doubles as brake lights and turn signals(and even backup if you want).
It is the one electrical accessory I wired to turn on automatically with ignition. It initially goes to street mode and with a click of a remote button it switches to strobe mode(8 different patterns). I have it set to strobe just the ambers and white, that way the brake lights still function.
Mine is a 37" and was under a $80.

Mostly things that it needed, or should have and adding turn signals.You are really deep in the hole now Glad you are having some fun tinkering and personalizing it.
Yea. These things are actually really easy to work on.Mostly things that it needed, or should have and adding turn signals.
The whip was way easier to make than I expected, hardest part was converting the flat pin connector that comes with the light strip to the little round black sealed connector.....soldering those tiny(25ga?) wires was tedious.
One thing I learned was how easy it is to strip down panels to access wiring front to rear.
