well its $49 on stuffforyourranger.com. I was just interested, I thought it would look cool. I have niteshaded taillights and they are plenty bright but I figured this strip would be a nice touch.

I had one and really liked it. Mine all of a sudden only works when you hit the brakes, turn signal, or hazards. It doesn't come on with the running lights anymore. I love how they look. If anyone knows how to fix please let me know.....

I used to like them but I have seen too many and lots of them get broken; miss-lighting sides, LEDs out, not properly installed, etc.

Good idea, I got the one with the reverse light and it really doesn't do crap except look good while going in reverse. Not that you can even see it that good cuz I added auxilary reverse lights on the bumper anyways

It was like 30 extra bucks, It didn't seem worth it to me.

I think they are very cool...esspecially if you wire them up under the rockers. sry for the bad pic. They didn't last long enough to get any good ones. The snow would pack up under them and blow fuses. Then i smashed them wheelin. NOTE THESE ARE CHEAP BULLY LINE-O-FIRE. Wayne has good stuff.
