Rear Auxiliary Lights installed..








The lights have 2 coats of nite-shade to hide them.. I like em.. easy mod that took a good 2 hours of running wire and rerunning wire with a wire loom.. I got them because this electronics store in arlington did not do refunds after I returned some computer crap, so I got a toy

Nice. Very subtle until you turn them on. Looks like a very clean install.

Ill get a few tomorrow after work..


I am thinking about having them aim towards the sides of the truck instead of straight back so I can see them in the rear view mirrors.. They are plenty bright but they are pointed down and straight back so I dont see much from the cab..

I was thinking about doing that, but it is as simple as tapping the reverse lights and adding a relay? no more work than that Im just too lazy,,
