Custom Sock bed decal for Michele
    Beside the pic's that were posted before.....my idea was the same as mounting the jack. Come off the bed cleat, with an "L" shaped piece of Alum or steal stock. Then mount the lights, I had planned also on blacking out all but a center strip in the lights. This way getting a flat beam, like seen on military transport.
    The idea is in my head and VERY sound, but still need to do it. One of my next mods.
    When you come up with it, post some pic's, I personally would like to see it, and yes I will do the same.

    Are you trying to light up just the bed or around/behind the truck?

    This is my setup, and you can see how well it lights inside the bed. :D
