Atomic Hide Away Strobes now out

I see these are finally released for our year super duty. Anyone have experience with this kit on older model vehicles? I wonder if you need the aftermarket clearance lights or if this will strobe the stock lights.

Mine has cab lights but it says you need LED lights for it to work. Also, I thnk adding an additional strobe lights bring more attention when needed. The stock locations don't bring as much attention

I want to see this kit installed on a factory equipped LED truck. Iíve been waiting for almost a year for this kit.

I believe the cab lights in all 2017+ are LED stock.

Extremely interested in this. My truck is work and personal and would like it to look as stock as possible. Not gonna lie it makes me nervous plugging stuff into bcm etc but maybe it shouldn't. Gonna wait for a few videos and reviews but strong potential I'll be ordering this thanks for link!

On that note...is there a list for all the replacement bulbs/sizes for truck? I have a 2017 f250 and almost none of them are LED. I've changed headlights and reverse lights to LED but nothing else. I'm pretty sure 3rd brake light is LED from factory for all tho?

How does this compare to a Z-flash?

do they have a video to demo/show this in action? Is it programmable?

While plug and play, the photo makes it seem like a ton of wiring and modules to hide under the dash vs z-flash which just plugs into the OBDII

My buddy is looking for a quick way to get his stock lights to get into a strobe type flash for plowing. Will the Z-Flash do it ? Something he can plug in when he plows and unplug when he isn't.

Anyone have one with a video ?

Here are some videos from the 2016 and older model (youtube search). Again, not sure that the cab lights work with this or you need aftermarket. If it works with it, I will buy it. I know the Z flash works, but you hear the "clicking" of your turn signals. I would like this because I would connect it to an upfitter switch. I would like to see the same videos for our year, but they just came out within the last 2 weeks.

I have the z flash had it since last October. Works great but wag pattern isn't great in the rear of the truck, front is BRIGHT. They sent me an email and I replied about programming my own wag, but I haven't had time yet. For the price, works great.
Also, high beams, fogs, and rear brake lights flash.
Like I said.. rear lights up, but allot slower

Tried to add attachment of what they sent me when I enquired about the pattern on the 2017+ superduties. They only sent me rear but I like the pattern.

I got confirmation from atomic that this will strobe the front & rear signals, reverse cargo and third brake light. The clearance lights are a different kit.

I have Z-Flash and it is the best most cost-effective solution if you have the factory LED lights installed. I am testing new patterns as we speak!

I would like to see videos if you don't mind sharing. The only reason I chose not to go this route is primarily due to the one video I have seen on a super duty and the flash pattern didn't look much more than stock hazard lights.
