Cool, but I don't often lift my hood in the dark. Are they even noticeable during daylight?

They actually are! Obviously, they have no real use other than "shock & awe" but I think it'd be cool to have my engine bay done up nice and when I go to truck meets, pop it open and show her off. I mean if you think about it, do billet radiator caps and colored hoses serve any purpose other than looks? lol. Just messin around is all.

Ramsfan - This is a killer idea and it looks great. I want to do this to my S&B also, but could use some help.

How did you run the wires out of the CAI? Can you up close pictures of where the wiring goes into/out of the CAI?

Also, can you post pics of where/how you spliced into the hood light?

I don't have any pictures right this second but if you're standing in front of the truck looking at the Filter Box, in the corner that is closest to the firewall on the left upper side, I drilled a small hole to feed the wires through. After I got everything hooked up I used a dab of black silicone to hold the wires in place. By doing this in this position, I allows you to run your wires along the fender behind the box so they are completely concealed.

Also, I originally tapped in to the hood light wires using T-Snap connectors but I have since bought a control box which will allow me to control the lights via remote control. Kind of like a key fob. The hood light is a constant source of power so unless you tap in behind the mercury switch the led's will always be on. I opted not to use a hood pin switch because they are prone to corrode and other problems. I will send you some more detailed info tomorrow like the remote box part number and where you can get it.

Glad you like it. Thanks.

Appreciate any help and pictures Ramsfan - I am definitely "stealing"/borrowing the idea and could use all the help I could get.

That is awesome! That will be my next underhood mod.
It should look good with what I have done so far.

Here is mine. I have not wired it into the truck electrical yet. It will be brighter once I do (it's on a small battery for set up purposes). As you can see in thwe pic I installed a switch to turn it on and off.

Great Mod Ramsfan! Reps and thanks!




Next: Hide the wiring and run it to the electrical...
