Custom LED bar that goes under tailgate??
Hey ya'll been thinking on this one,
How hard would it be to take a piece of approx. 1x1 squared tubing and making it into a LED light bar???
Of course I would have to drill holes in it to put the LED's on (not the diode's), and run the wires together and then run those wires into my tail lights. I would have the same number on each side to run to either the R or L tailight but across the bar. I was figuring on coating the steel tube with a bed liner material to avoid rust and damaging any paint. I'd probably also weld washers to the back side and have a way of bolting it my rear bumper to cover the problem of mounting it.
What do ya'll think? Any electrical problems I should watch for or take care of??
Reason why I want to do this, is that if one of the LED's burns out I can easily replace it, unlike a LED bar which has the individual diode's and those are not fixable if they mess up.
I don't like investing in something that's not fixable if it messes up.
