I was going to night shade mine and put them on the front of the mirror but this was easier.
These are like the park lights if im not signaling there just on solid, like park/running light.

WOW those are awesome. Im gonna order me a set.

On the eBay listing it says no drilling don't you have to drill for the wire to run into the mirror housing?


The seem more visable from further back unlike what I got now. WOnder how well it would look on the outside of the mirror
Since you can bend these you can get the curve to work

Like this where the white line is

I looked at putting mine there too, I just didnt want the wire to show. but you could prob drill a little hole and put the wire into the mirror.
Also Its not that flexable/sticky as it looks. I think if you flexed it to much it wouldnt stick

The LED strips + my Off road lights are by far the best money spent on my truck. The stips look sooo good, and the off road lights make night driving so much nicer.
