but really lol.
and i was gonna buy some LED bulbs for it, but when i got everything hooked up the lights in it worked lol
and they're damn bright. so i think im just gonna leave em as is just to keep it practical. without the right LED i can see the output going down. and they dont come on when i open the doors. only when i use the switches on the ohc.

it actually was. because the guide from TRS basically didnt relate to my truck at all since i guess wiring changed in 07. thanks to a test light was able to find a few of them and get it all wired up right.

yeah get a test light if you can, helps a ton. most of the wires aren't the same lol

for instance, the power for the OHC (fused ignition power wire in factory radio harness) isnt what is said in any of the writeups i've seen. i'll need to look again. which it is exactly. but it can be found with a test light by turning the key on and seeing which comes when you do this
