considering white underbody led/neon kit... opinions?

i've been considering a white underbody led kit for some time now... but the really nice kits are $200+. well, cardomain is having a new years sale, and they are selling a varad white led underbody kit for $113 with free shipping. (regular price is $229)

i'm pretty sure its a very good deal for that particular kit... any opinions on the kit, or how you think it'd look on my truck?

i figured white would look good on my truck and wouldnt be as "ricey" as some of the other colored ones.

here is the link to the deal;

and here is my truck; (phone pics)

I think white would look good. Well thought out vs the Ricer's that have money to blow and can't afford turbos lol.

Brian, have you considered cold cathodes? they're fairly cheap and I wired mine up to the dome light (but you don't have to!). Mine is white and it functions are my puddle light. It works GREAT.

i installed the underbody kit this weekend. first impressions are that its freakin BRIGHT! it is MUCH brighter than i was expecting. i've been leaving it on the second to lowest dimmer setting :o)

its a scanning kit, and there are a total of about 20 'modes'. most of em are kinda lame imo, but a couple, including the 'breathing' modes, look pretty sweet.

i'll be posting a video and new pictures this weekend, after i get my bed linex'd ;o)
