Heavy Duty TOW TRUCK LED Kit
Heavy Duty Tow Truck LED Light Kit
Boogey Lights® super bright Heavy Duty LED light strips are ideal for working truck applications including tow trucks and wreckers. Typical use is to increase visibility with placement along the sides of the truck in the existing channel commonly found on most tow trucks and wreckers. In many cases our Heavy Duty LED strips can be used as a direct replacement for factory installed lights using the existing wiring, access holes, switches and flashers. Offered in multi-color RGB, RGBA, Dual Color (your choice of 7 primary colors + amber) and single color (8 choices) configurations. With our optional RGB (or RGBA) multi-color controller, you can set the color of your choice or pre-program a sequence of colors. We offer complete customization capabilities too for those unique situations.
Boogey Lights® HEAVY DUTY LED STRIPS used in our Heavy Duty Tow Truck kit are designed to be used in tough, outdoor and commercial applications where the lighting strip might be subject to direct impact, heavy road use or submersed in water. The flexible PVC provides an extra, dual layer of protection above and beyond our already tough LED light strips. Ideal for off-road machines, ATVs, side-by-sides, tool box compartments, vehicle storage bins, truck beds and heavy duty truck commercial applications.
RGB MULTI-COLOR OPTION: The multi-color RGB LED version provides over 16 million color combinations that you control and includes it's own on/off wireless switch. The multi-color RGB kit includes our Heavy Duty combo Bluetooth + RF Key Fob controller so you can control the lights with your Bluetooth enabled smartphone or the included wireless RF Key Fob remote controls. With any of the Boogey Lights® BLUETOOTH controllers you can control your lights with your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled Android or IOS smartphone. These high-tech controllers are capable of displaying 16 million different color combinations. In addition, lighting effects on the Smartphone controller are significantly more controllable in terms of speed and intensity. Each color and lighting effect is controlled by "sliders" or a color square on your smartphone screen so you can adjust the speed and intensity to get the lighting exactly the way you want it. Our controllers operate on 12vdc. Also, all of our SERIES 2 Bluetooth Combo controllers include an RF remote control allowing for quick on/off of the controller. You can operate this controller with the included RF wireless remote OR you can use your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone and our free smartphone APP (Android and IOS).
What is RGB+Amber (RGBA)?
RGBA is a new LED strip format Boogey Lights® developed. It is available in both our Low Profile and Heavy Duty LED strip formats. The RGBA led strip includes our core RGB tri-chip technology using a 5050 RGB LED with the addition of a fourth 2835 diode that is AMBER. Designed primarily for motor vehicle applications, that fourth AMBER diode can be wired to a separate switch on the dash (or tied into a relay to work with existing running lights) that allows you to quickly and easily turn on just the AMBER leds. Then, for those who want the flexibility to be able to display up to 16 million color combinations using the RGB tri-chip, they can do that too. RGB + A provides the best of both worlds. Single color amber plus RGB tri-chip multi-color. The product photo carousel of this product page includes a close-up view of the LED strip design and wiring diagram. Note that due to the addition of that fourth diode, the RGBA strips are a little wider than our standard tri-chip RGB and single color LED strips. Also, the power lead wires use five conductor vs four. For additional information including product specs, click the SPECS navigation tab on this product page.
What is DUAL COLOR?
The Dual Color LED configuration uses our RGBA LED strip but instead of pairing that LED strip with an RGB LED controller (to mix up to 16 million different color combinations), we hard wire a combination of one, two or all three of the RGB diodes (red, green or blue) along with the AMBER diode to two on/off switches. One switch operates the primary color diode(s). The other switch operates the amber diode. There are a total of seven Dual Color configuration options: RED+AMBER, GREEN+AMBER, BLUE+AMBER, MAGENTA+AMBER, YELLOW+AMBER, CYAN+AMBER, WHITE+AMBER. With a Dual Color configuration you don't need an LED Controller. Instead, you only need two switches (and relays); one to control each color. The primary color is chosen from the available dual color drop down list. The secondary color is always amber. Note: The Dual Color options include two toggle switches and 30 amp relays.
DOT COMPLIANCE: The AMBER and RED single color LED strips are DOT COMPLIANT. They conform to applicable provisions of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 requirements.
NOTE ON COLOR SELECTION: In most cases AMBER is the only color that can be used when driving on public highways in the United States. This is one reason why our Multi-Color RGB kit is popular. It allows you to change the colors to fit the situation. For example, we've found white to be very helpful when parked for working around the truck at night. Also, the controller in our Multi-Color RGB kit allows you to setup presets for your color selections as well as features which include dimming, strobing, breathing and color blending. As an example, for maximum visibility in emergency situations such as when parked on the side the road, with the Multi-Color RGB option you can program the lights to flash red. Or, rotate through a sequence of red and amber.
For those who want the option to run RGB plus AMBER, select our RGBA led strip. In this configuration, you can wire the AMBER led chip to a simiple on/off switch (not included) while using the included RF + Bluetooth wireless LED controller to mix up to 16 million color combinations and presets.
OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED TO COMPLETE YOUR INSTALL. No two installation scenarios are the same. Not everyone shares the same installation quality goals. Some folks are OK with twisting wires together, others want to solder them. Some folks are OK with running wires where they may be seen or unprotected to save money/time, others want a tidy, clean install without any wires showing. Some folks are OK with mounting their LED strips to whatever surface they can find, others want to take the time necessary to build out appropriate mounting surfaces to provide the best lighting effect on their vehicle. The point is it's not possible to provide all the materials necessary for all installation scenarios and quality goals. Our light kits provide the essential components needed for a high-quality, functioning lighting system. Installation of our light kit to your specific vehicle may however require additional items to make it look and fit the way you want. This is particularly the case with electrical wiring and mounting of LED strips. Before proceeding with your installation we suggest you consider THESE OTHER ITEMS.
Why buy a KIT vs Individual Components? Our LED Light Kits are less expensive to purchase than if you were to purchase the components individually. If you need shorter lengths of HEAVY DUTY STRIPS, we also offer them in groups of 15, 30 and 45 LEDs. We'll be happy to provide kit pricing that include other lengths of Heavy Duty LED Strips mixed in with this kit. We do custom kits all that time for customers. Just ask!
We offer super-bright single color Hi-Intensity Surface Mounted LED strips that can be cut to length for interior and protected areas. They're often used to light up inside tool boxes and equipment storage areas of tow trucks (see photos).
3M® PRIMER INCLUDED Each kit includes 3M®primer. It's important the surface be prepared properly to make sure the LED strips stay stuck.
