so you have 36" of flexible strips on each side of the truck?
I would also want drive shaft, rear axle, and each wheel well, front and rear bumpers. sounds expensive.

We might be able to work something out for that volume. But to me it's relatively inexpensive for the brightness and the amount you are getting

That's what's holding me back. Gonna need more than just one on each side of the truck. Maybe after Christmas

Looks like the flexible ones are the way to go. Save money by not having to buy the connectors. Plus they can bend.
Are they the same brightness/ same amount of LEDs?

What will you be using them for so I can recommend the best set up for you. But yes I can send you 6 flexible strips if you would like.

Got mine in the mail today. Tested one a little bit with some longer wires and rigged it up in a few places. They are definitely pretty cool. Still don't have an idea of how many I'll actually need to do what I want, but they may work!


Thanks for the quick shipping!

In this picture you have 3 on each side right? and are they attached between the outside of the frame rail and the pinch weld?



I'm going to play around with that mounting area, but since I have sliders it might throw too many shadows. Thinking maybe on the inside of the frame rail somewhere. Also want to light up the wheel wells and axles
