Re: LED Tailgate Bar

Step led is I like the idea, unlike the strip. IMO.

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

there isn't really any space to fit an led strip even if you decided to try it...go look.

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

The LED strips look stupid on trucks too. Now if you got rid of the taillights and just ran the LED strip, that would look good. But the different light styles and bulbs looks weird to me.

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion but i did it and i Love it. I didn't have a trailer hitch so there wasn't the wiring there so i had to improvise. i pulled out the bulbs and carefull sliped it around prong and put the bulb back in. I had to bolt the bar on because the 3m supplied would allow the bar to stick with that curve. I chose to wire it so that it only lights up when i brake, turn, or reverse. Its more for safety than looks. Basically it acts as another 3rd brake light. I haven't gotten around to getting some pictures taken but i like it and am happy with it

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

I found a flexible one, it can also be trimmed
for whatever width you need

Still on my list of future mods....

and I was also wondering why its only at the corners. Maybe its just some led bulbs they wired in there instead of the whole commercial strip you buy...
