Default LED light bar for my 2013 RAM Laramie

Hi - I'm contemplating adding an LED light bar with turn signals to my new RAM Laramie - I've shopped some on-line and are concerned with the reviews. Many don't seem to last or are being shipped with problems. Any recommendations?

I also got one from Bully's I have the 60" LEDGlow light bar with reverse. Works great. There is some condensation in it but that is being taken care of by LEDGlow and Bully's under warranty at this time.

I personally have never seen one of these on a truck that didn't have leds out or messed up in some other way. I never understood the point of them but I'm sure they look cool when brand new.

I have the IPCW LED light bar and so far (3 months) everything is working just fine. I mounted it just above the jack hole. Comes packaged very well.

I also installed this wiring harness adapter so I didn't have to splice the wires. Made the whole thing plug & play except for the reverse wire. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Trailer-Plug...870f6c&vxp=mtr

I currently have the Recon mini led lightbar on my vehicle right now, it looks great. I will be transfering it to my new Ram when it comes in. It is easy to install-plug and play.

Thanks for the feedback guys - Greg, I like the wiring harness - looks like it keeps it looking clean.

I taped the reverse wire into the wiring harness that I got from Ebay. That way I didn't have to violate the factory wiring.


I have a IPCW LED Tailgate Light Bar and I installed it above the jack hole. I also removed the plastic ring around the jack hole. I set the light bar on 4 CD plastic cases (each side) on top of the bumper (found on another install post not my idea) which I used as spacers to keep the light bar level. Pressed the bar in place with the 3M tape and it cleared the tail gate and was at the correct height.
