Strobe Light Kit Now Available for 2016 F-150 Fleet Orders
Ford announced this week that for the first time in history, it will make strobe lights available for its F-150 fleet customers. This kit, which is already available on the 2016 Super Duty, will further serve the purpose of making the next-gen F-150 the smartest Ford has ever built.
“Ford designed the first-ever factory-installed LED warning light kit based on fleet customer input,” said Kent Bock, Ford commercial accessory business development manager. “Because it comes directly from Ford, customers can trust that this light kit is Built Ford Tough. Ordering is as easy as checking a box, and the truck is delivered to your dealer with the system installed.”

The strobe light kit is typically used by fleet customers whose jobs require increased visibility to passing motorists, including utility, road construction, and municipal crews. The strobe lights are front- and rear-mounted, and they are visible from a maximum distance of 1,000 feet during the day and from a mile away at night.
The kit includes high-mounted, forward-facing signals that are mounted at the rear edge of the hood, and rear-facing signals mounted on the stop lamp, making equipped F-150s visible from both front and rear and providing crew members additional visibility. The kit can also be programmed to utilize specific flashing patterns.
The strobe light kit comes with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty, and they are serviceable at any Ford dealership around the country. And before you go thinking that you might get it installed on your personal-use 2016 F-150, Ford requires a fleet identification number before ordering.
