Plasmaglow makes one...it's actually a flexible one that you can cut to any length. I had it on my flareside for like 10 minutes...but peeled it off, wasn't sure if I was sold on the look.

Also, you can find it MUCH cheaper on other sites. But I usually start on the manufacturer’s site for the best information on a product, then search after that.

I also found a cheesy install video that shows the actual product:

You can cut it down to like 20" if you wanted...as long as you cut it in sections of three led's your fine (instructions are included). Trust me...I had it actually installed on my flarside. I cut it down to like 40" (equal amount off each end to keep the blinkers even!) and then just centered it along the tailgate gap.

Yeah the lady in the video is wrong,in saying that it can be cut down to 49"...it can actually be cut down a lot more than that. They guy has it right..saying as long as you cut it sections of 3 led's your "good to go".
