I'm just scared of the wiring you guys..

And the legality...

I'd probally prefer to run a whole seperate wire so I can switch it on when I want to..

That way, if I needed to back up in traffic I don't blind anyone..

I'll probally paint my top and wire the lights in the same run, that way I have the topper off allready, and can use it to access the bed easier..

I havn't wired fog lights yet..




I've got this wire coming from, I dunno where.. plus some other ones that I think are suppose to be for trailer lights.


I'd like to try and mount the lights on the inside area of the bumper in between the bumper and tail gate..

Well, maybe haha. They're 55 watts like a headlight, excellent tailgater deterent.

They're not wired up to the reverse lights, just a manual on/off toggle. They're nice for other times when not in reverse. I suppose you could put it in reverse and flip the key on and they'd work too if wired up to the reverse lights.
