Purchased 3 18" triple LED auxiliary bars off of EBay this last month - finally got around to putting them all in.. wired them up so the center is a standard low glow auxiliary running light.. and the left and rights are wired in for high/low on the brakes.. so they go off when the brakes do (Turning, emergency, braking.. etc.. etc..)
Also ran 2 coats of Nightshade over them to tint them and dim the bright bright glow of the LED's as they came stock - gave it a nice subtle glow if you can see them in person, adds a nice touch to the rear of the truck - and is 100% visible underneath my full size spare, as seen in the video.
Any other questions feel free to ask.. lots and lot of work into all kinds of things - and its the simple things like this that make me smile when I put my tools down at the end of the day =)
Truck sounds good Mike!! Maybe it's just the vid but it seems like the outside ones don't get much brighter. I'm gonna pull the running light portion on my line of fire... I think it makes it pop more when the lights only come on with brake/turning... I think your outside ones would look good like that!!
I coudl try it - as easy as unplugging the low wire on the rear - I used easy disconnects on those - I can run a test and make another little vid on it to see how it turns out..
The lights really pop better when the camera is actually at the height of a car - LED's are very directional.. and I had mine pretty much 2 inches off the ground on a little box I set down - Plus its the glare from the brake lights
You'll all have to see it in person when it starts getting darker outside - I also managed to get that entire weekend off.. so heck yeah for the 22nd! =)
My spare tire is actually blocking the third brake light Its there, and working perfectly.. forgot that I never have put that on video.. my nice 4x4 emblem on there that illuminates :-D
Ugh, driving to work today and hit my brakes and heard some horrid screeching.. need to pull ym pads off and get the rotors turned and put some new pads on.. pain in the butt :-S Made some nasty sounds all the way home =(
