Exclamation LED Taillight Bar

Has anyone installed an LED taillight bar on their 5th gen Ram 1500 yet? I'm looking at a Putco Blade Amber/Red/White taillight bar with the plug and play harness.

If you are writing about putting the light bar under the tailgate & above the rear bumper,
Measure the distance from the centerline out to the hole where you would insert the tire tool into to lower the spare tire.
Several people bought the light bar before taking that measurement & found out that the lightbar would be off centered

Isn't the hole for the jack lower on the 5th generation Rams than the 4th generation Rams?

I had that problem with my '04 Ram 1500. I ended up covering the spare tire winch hole and learned the hard way when I needed the spare. My '19 Ram 1500 is in transit and I won't know for sure until it gets here. I do know that I want to go with either an LED taillight bar or the 3 dually LED marker lights. I'm also looking into putting the 3 Raptor style marker lights into the grille of the Ram. I'm also going to see if I can put a full size matching spare in place of the temporary use spare.

I don't know if the 2019 Ram spare tire Rim center hole is or will be the same inner diameter as the rim center hole of the past few years.

In the past the center hole for the spare rim is a different size from the chrome or aluminum center holes of the ones that came on the Ram.

On the spare tire winch under the truck, there is a metal piece on the end of the cable
The metal piece fits the center hole of the spare rim perfectly, that metal piece will not fit the regular rims center hole.



enlarge the image & then click your computers CTRL key & the + key several times to enlarge the image even further

Is the hole smaller or bigger on the aluminum rim? If it's bigger that's an easy fix.

If you look at the images of the 2019 Ram 5th Gen, it looks like there is no place under the tailgate to put a lightbar, but i have not seen a close up image



I also can't see a hole to insert the tool to raise & lower the spare tire, i think that i see it when i enlarge the image below. Look closely at the bumper, about 1 1/2 inches to the right of the trailer plugs, there is a small plastic flap or insert



rear bumper removal

That's why I asked if anyone has installed one on a 5th generation Ram before. Mine is at least another week out before I see it.

I put my led strip on the bottom of the tailgate worked great. Was plug and play. Go to wish.com you can get one for around 10.00 and they are nice bright has backup light turn signals they have all red or red and amber. There are some really good deals on that site and they guarantee everything never have had a problem with anything from their site if it doesn’t work or their was something wrong with the item they have always given me a refund and said just keep the item. Check them out they have a lot of different stuff cheap.
