So finally this weekend I got my led brow project done i like it and i'm sure not all will like it so ITS ALL GOOD lolol

step #1 take pic of your center console apart so you know what plug goes where!



Step #2 figure out how big of a hole has to be cut for your switch. for this type of switch it was 1/2". i drilled the hole and then put the switch on.


Step 3 verify it looks good and is in the proper spot


step 4 add connectors to the plugs on the switch and then run a small amount of wire and add quick disconnects (this way you can unplug the wires if you need to take apart your console in the future, no need to heat shrink since no water will be getting in there)


Step 5 next process was running the wire through the firewall into the engine bay. I used the grommet for the hood release to pull 3 wires into the engine bay(thanks rob!!!)

3 wires were green- power to led, black - negative, red - positive


Step 6 I got a power distribution box from pepboys and hooked it up to my positive terminal so i can add power to future projects:) great thing for only $10:) you can also get the 3 spade terminal thingies from pep boys for like $5

I hooked up the positives and negatives from the leds and from the switch together and soldered them together and then wrapped them in electrical tape and then they were heat shrunk



Step 7 all the wiring was covered in wiring cover from the leds all the way to the firewall




Step 8 tested the switch inside the truck to make sure everything worked


step 9 - close up the center console and put back the all the trim you took off.

step 10 step back and admire your new leds:)





This is how much light they emit by themselves in the dark... They look really nice and in person they look much nicer and brighter! the camera dulls the light




edit**** these are the standard leds you can buy from oznium or ebay. I used 3m double sided car molding tape to stick to the bottom of the headlights! I cleaned the bottom of the headlights first with Meguiars APC+

feedback is always appreciated

Irf - you didn't cover how and where you secured the LED strip (just the switch install). Maybe you should add that for those who want to do the same.
