Strobe lights are now available to F-150 fleet customers
Ford is now offering a factory-installed strobe warning LED light kit for its fleet customers. The strobe light kit is designed for use by municipal, DOT, utility, road construction and public works crews that need enhanced vehicle visibility. Crews can use the kits when they are working on-site. The lights are designed to warn motorists and others that workers may be present and to proceed with caution. The lights should only be used on or near work site and not during normal road driving.
Already available on 2016 F-Series Super Duty, the lights now are available for all 2016 F-150 models. The kit uses weather-resistant, durable, low-power LEDs. It is designed to work with the F-150 high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body.
The front- and rear-mounted amber lens strobe lights can be seen from as far away as 1,000 feet during the day and a mile at night. Forward-facing signals are high mounted at the rear edge of the hood for maximum visibility. Rear-facing signals are mounted on either side of the center high-mounted stop lamp, and provide up to 180 degrees of illumination. Customers can program the flash pattern to meet specific fleet requirements.
“Ford designed the first-ever factory-installed LED warning light kit based on fleet customer input,” says Kent Bock, Ford commercial accessory business development manager. The kit is a Ford product and is Built Ford Tough, says Bock. He adds: “Ordering is as easy as checking a box, and the truck is delivered to your dealer with the system installed.”
The no-drill option has a Ford limited warranty of three years or 36,000 miles, and is not susceptible to corrosion issues that can be a result of aftermarket installation. The strobe lights are serviceable at any of the more than 3,000 Ford dealerships nationwide.
Strobe light ordering is available for customers with a fleet identification number.
