    I switched out my COB LED strip step lights for Ampper Rock Lights, and my no-name eBay interior lights for ok-name SiriusLED ones. Can't believe how much brighter they are.

    Before/after photos taken with the same camera settings.

    Steps before (kinda hard to see but one is around 6000k, other is more like 5000k)

    Dome/Map lights look a little cooler than the step lights in this shot but I think that may just be the grey interior vs. tan driveway. They match decently in person.

    Nice!!

    I got eagle eyes in my reverse lights, puddle lamps, and inside the rear hatch. Best $10 I've ever spent

    This isn't a light mod I've done.....yet. Does anyone know where I could find these lights? They appear to be white LEDs in a cube/pod, but it has red LEDs outlining those. This truck had those red LEDs wired into the brake/turn signals.

    I finally figured out the "right search words" for Google to show the same shit. Some are sold with the ring already installed. I can't trust cheap shit like that. And so, it is quickly off the list.

    I was trying to be too specific. Then I just typed "red/white led pods" & BOOM. What a letdown. But, I have other options for the old truck.

    Better question is why do you need 5 brake lights...

    well.........one good reason could be that you install some led bulbs to be cool joe then you realize that the bulbs suck and you dont want to get rear ended. So being thick headed you say fuck that im not changing the bulbs back we will just add more brake lights.

    If need be lol.

    I mostly have the extra lights to fill in the voids in the brush guard. It looks really plain with none.

    The bixenon HID projector puts out more useful light than anything else, couldn't even tell the 30" led bar I had before was on so I figured I might as well put something useful there. The beam on these KC spots is unreal but not really useful in regular driving because it so narrow.

    The big spot above the tractor is all from those two lights, you can see where the bixenon high beam fade out just before the tractor.

    Not sure if anyone is on this anymore but i just finished up with some F*%d style raptor grill lights along with the 20" in the bumper. I used 3" trailer turn signals for $5 a piece along with some 14 gauge wire. Photo May 10, 6 29 44 PM.jpg Photo May 10, 9 11 30 PM.jpg
