Already ordered them?

Looks like you got a great start. Just FYI, after installing above parts, you going to want to upgrade your third brake light bulb, as well as your cargo lights. They just won't look right anymore. Then your interior lights will bug you, at least that's how it was for me.

ya..sounds like this could be a disease! Third brake light part of package..matching...updated original post. I figure with these purchases I have the rear led fetish covered. Have to wait on fronts for more funds.

Ordering all tomorrow.

Sounds good! It is a disease in a way. It's simply after seeing the superior light and color of the LED compared to halogen lights, you just wanna replace everything else to match.

Suggestion when mounting the LED light bar.... grab a couple of CD cases (the fatter ones that all CDs used to come in, but not the 'double' cases).

If you place a CD case along the bumper in several spots, you can then rest the light bar on the CD case. This will make it easier to keep it straight and level, you'll just have to keep a close eye on keeping it centered.

Same as the license plate lights. They are interchangable.
