Hey guys, I was wondering if there is a way to make the Halo on headlights strobe, or if there is an option on the market. Here's my thought, I'm a firefighter so I was thinking of getting new headlights with blue halos that will strobe with a switch and alternating left and right side. I don't want them as daytime running lights. I was looking to get away from a windshield mounted light and wanted something not real obvious. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Don't firefighters have a special catalog for first responder lights? Anything else would seem like poser set up.

First check the laws for your state. There are restrictions on what vehicles are allowed to have these lights, in which colors, how they can be wired up, can they strobe, etc. I have no advice on vendors, but I'm certain they exist (first responders have to get their official lights from somewhere).

We do have a catalog but we aren't required to get "official" first responder lights through the catalog. It's a small community volunteer department so we can do about whatever we want with lights without getting hassled by anyone. Quite a few of the guys have lights that suction to the windshield they got off Amazon. I was wanting something a little cleaner looking for my Jeep. And I do not want the blue lights on as running lights, only when I flip a switch and have them strobe. Just thinking of ways to keep my windshield view clear and not having a light suctioned to it.

Just based on the fact that I have seen legit emergency vehicles that flash factory lights, it has to be possible. What comes to mind is the DRL LED’s of a Dodge Charger, brake light or reverse light flashers, and the high beam flashers that have been used for decades. Check Code3, Federal Signal, and Whelen. They are all reputable suppliers of emergency equipment. Also check with the local PD. They often use a local company to upfit their vehicles and their upfitter may be able to get you what you need.

This would be very possible. In fact if you wanted white halo's for DRL's that can change to blue or whatever color you want to strobe that is also possible. My uncle was a volunteer fire fighter an they used green, that was a long time ago. Give Oracle Lighting a call. I am sure they can set you up.

I will try to speak with someone at Oracle. I'm personally not a fan of the halos as DRL so I would just prefer a blue halo that I can wire up to strobe. I'm not too interested in having any kind of a DRL. Thanks for the replies.

I use a small light bar that I got from Strobes-N-More and mounted to a Mopar light bar in front of my grille.

with out knowing where your located, and I am assuming you have permission to run reds/blues (as per your local laws) you are understanding of all responsibilities and accept that I not anyone related to this forum are responsible for your actions and that by putting emergency lighting on your vehicle you are assuming all responsibility.


ok with that disclaimer out of the way....

Strobes n more, siren net, galls.com, Speedtechlights.com are the ones I know work....as for the rest of my list I had, yea.......not so much anymore, I suspect they went out of business.....

Thanks for the shout out!

We can definitely help out with getting you strobing halos that won't affect your DRL function. Your best bet is going to be to choose a ColorSHIFT product controlled by a remote or controller that offers strobing. We have a few halo kits for a JK headlight (plus matching fog light options if you want to go that route too).

We have a couple of options for the halo kit:

- 2007-2016 JEEP WRANGLER JK ORACLE HALO KIT: This kit is installed inside your headlight housing for a seamless look.

- 2007-2017 JEEP WRANGLER JK ORACLE LED HEADLIGHT HALO KIT-WATERPROOF: This kit is surface-mount for a quick installation without opening the housings.

- ORACLE 7" HIGH POWERED LED HEADLIGHTS (PAIR) - BLACK BEZEL: More than just a halo addition, this will replace your existing headlight for better light output with Phillips Luxeon ZES chips plus the ColorSHIFT halos for that strobing effect.


There's also a couple of ColorSHIFT controller options which you'll see on the product pages. Our most popular is the BC1 which uses Bluetooth for smartphone control, but we also have multiple options for keypad remotes too.

Hope that helps you out! Feel free to drop us questions here, visit the website (and shop with the code forum10 for 10% off) or give our forum sales rep, Melissa, a call at 504-322-4094 (and let her know you came from here for our forum discount!)

'WigWag' Flashers were/are used on some factory headlights to do the alternating left and right flash that most cruisers have. I'm not sure how they play with LED's, but something to maybe look into

shouldn't be an issue as the flasher units are basically a switch turning on and off as needed when in use, obviously read any instructions/manuals provided if able to ensure proper installation

The problem with the wigwag relay and LED's is the relay operates based on current draw and LED's don't draw enough. I'm sure that there now is a compatible relay but when I was a Volunteer FF, there was not.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I like the idea of the wig-wag with the Halo kit from Oracle. I think it will be a nice clean look but also giving me the strobing pattern I'm looking for.
