Default Behind The Grille & Exterior Lights

As many of you may know, I recently purchased a 2007 Hemi Ram MegaCab.

I will be converting my chrome grille shell to body color (found some good info on removing chrome from plastic at some modeling forums ) and I will be updating the grille inserts with these:



What I want to do is put a couple of big lights behind the grille and I'll also mount a couple to a bull bar out front.

I'm interested in:

1. What you put in behind your grille.

2. How you did it, i.e., the install procedure.

3. How it looks when you got it done, with the hood up (mounting tabs, wiring, etc...) and with the hood down and the lights on.

4. Interior switch types and locations.

Pics would be good.

So post up your auxiliary lighting mods!

Thanks for the help.

My hella 500's came with the wiring harness, relay and holder and the switch. The switch is a simple rocker type with a light in it that glows green when on.

If you have the bucks really look into these lights lightforce

They are awesome, halogen and HID versions, they even have switchable colored covers ( amber, blue, red, IR.... )

Tailor your beam pattern in seconds with these easy to install clip on filters. Made of ultra strong polycarbonate they are virtually indestructible under any impact! They are all part of the modular LIGHTFORCE system that has set a ‘PRO’ standard in portable lighting. Available in SPOT, COMBO, WIDE ANGLE and DISPERSION spreads (For more information download the 'MODULAR FILTER SYSTEM' PDF).

Filters are available in several colours, for most reflector sizes. These are quickly attached and detached by simply clipping onto the front of the reflector housing to suit operating conditions.

COLOURS AVAILABLE:

CRYSTAL BLUE

Increases clarity.

SNOW BLUE

Ideal for snow, rain and sea spray conditions. Popular for marine applications.

AMBER

Ideal for minimizing glare in dust or foggy conditions.

GREEN

Specifically for spotting animals with sensitive eyes. Decreased visible light signature.

RED

Most popular for night spotting of light shy animals. Decreased visible light signature.

INFRA RED

Security, surveillance and convert police and military operations.

DISPERSION

Ideal to illuminate a work activity area.



NOTE: The printed 'Lightforce' logo does not adversely affect light ouput.



YELLOW

Ideal for fog, silt, haze and dust.
