Default My Lightsaber (RansRAM, wanna duel?)

Santa brought me one too.. I'm up for a duel anytime, RansRAM!

I installed this a few months ago.. only for the bar to finally give out due to operator error (I removed the tailgate to install.. and forgot to snap the rear camera wire loom back into place before I closed the tailgate.. doh!). So, the first bar got cracked and was removed.. I left all the wiring in place however, just tucking it up into safe 'storage'.

Finally installed the replacement a few weeks ago. Here's a pic of how I wired it up again.. hopefully it is understandable! And a video of the bar in action! (I wish I knew how to edit videos.. lol.. you'll know why at the end )

Thanks very much, GT! Coming from you, that is one heck of a compliment.

I am very pleased with the way my rig is progressing and am glad to help others when I can (and turn a few heads) while trying to build friendships and a good reputation here. The road thus far has most certainly been an extreme learning experience!

I tried giving you rep but apparently I've given too much in the last 24 hours.. lol
I'll be sure to send some your way when I can in thanks for your support!

That is a pretty cool light bar. When are you changing to LED tails?

I have been wrestling with the idea of getting one of these light bars. I reallllly like it, but at the same time I want to preserve a almost completely stock look.

Thanks for posting up the video, woke up the mod bug a little bit.

I have no plans to replace the entire tail light assembly.. but have been trying to look in to just replacing the stock bulbs with LEDs.

You know, I actually freaked out back when I first saw your lit flaps. Despite how much I liked yours, I love my chrome Canadian imports more. To each their own. I passed on more light in favor of that touch of chrome.

I am keeping my truck's stock appearance as well. This bar is hardly noticeable during the day and, well, obviously noticeable at night.
Here's a few day pics of the tailgate.. unless you're looking, you can't tell it's there.. I continue to surprise my friends who end up following me somewhere at night.

I think it is the perfect mod. It does not change the exterior (daily) appearance of the truck.. while I still get my addition of more lights at night.

That's what I meant. Looked around for a while myself for bulbs. Tried some from ****************. Not bright enough. Ended up with these in red which were recommended by SS4Luck. Nice and bright and I'm very pleased with them.

Maybe Asur with chime in. He got some really bright ones as well.
