I finished my LED install on my camper shell and thought I'd post a few photos here of the installed lights and switches.
A couple of photos of the momentary switch being used to activate the lights with the lift gate. I used angle brackets from Home Depot to configure the mount for the switch. It mounts to the window frame using an existing screw. Minor adjustments can be mad by slightly bending the mount.
This shows the wiring coming through an existing hole from the taillight and along the tailgate weather stripping. The ground is threaded through the weather stripping. It also shows the main cut-off switch mounted at the base of the shell.
Finally, a finished shot of the lights. I used a 16' weatherproof strip of 300 5050 LEDs. I made a full perimeter run and ended up with about 1' left over. This is a shortbed shell.
I ran the power wire from the cab fuse box using a fuse tap and low voltage landscape wire for durability.
All in all, a pretty easy mod, and it makes a huge difference at night when digging around in my truck bed.
