    Did this today. The driver’s side doesn’t sit all that flush on the top. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Why would you recommend NEVER putting those in the rear bumper covers? I don't get it?? They look factory, light up the world at night in reverse, very cheap, and 0 maintenance....Just because you may have had "issues" with the install, doesn't mean they arent worth it. I still had the paper tag on my truck, and was one of the 1st things I did. I had NEVER even touched a 3rd gen bumper cover, but with Youtube, and patience, it was a fairly simple, and REDICULOUSLY profitable modification.

    I make my own wire harnesses with 12 or 14 gauge wire, 3:1 adhesive lined heat shrink tubing, braided wire sleeve and weather pack connections. I have a SwitchPro so i dont need inline fuses or relays. I can probably help you/guide you if you need it.

    I get a lot of compliments on mine and I love mine. I have mine wired into a switch pro so i can strobe mine when pulled over so they are like hazard's as well as reverse lights.

    Mine was like that as well. I have an MGM Tacoma so i ran a very clean bead of black silicone around mine to fill in any small gaps and its clean looking. I used Painters tape to get the cleanest line.

    It is a tedious and time consuming process to do. There was a point i wish i had done it differently, but i don't regret it nor would i not recommend it. Its a great MOD and well worth it. I have had these lights installed for almost 2 years with no issues at all. Just take your time and be sure you have the right tools. I recommend a dremel.

    Just under $600 IIRC.. Aluminum with some massive frame tie-in plates

    The quality was much more than expected and Ben does an amazing job.... I had them Powder Coated Locally, but believe Ben can do the same textured PC if needed. @Dissent86 can provide more information.

    Best,

    I don’t know man. I just found the video on YouTube. I love the lights. Did them a few weeks ago and they’ve already helped a lot, especially hooking up the trailer at night. They were a bit of a pain in the ass, very tedious, I’ll admit that. But they’re very worth it. my butt did pucker a few times when cutting into the plastic caps haha.
