    What did you wire your shrouds up to? Ignition on? I'd like to find a way to have them operate like the factory DRLs.

    @1bad2k I believe they were spliced into the corner lights, since those will come on in the first switch position on the selector knob, a friend I work with is the one who knows how to build/wire headlights, I paid him to do it, but I also helped build them, was a cool experience. More work than I imagined but so worth it. I'll find out for sure when I see him at work tonight and message you.

    Edit: he basically built a harness just for these and wired everything up, that part I was not there for lol but he mentioned something about it, just can't remember what exactly he did.

    Cool! Thanks, that would be great if you could ask him what he chose. That actually isn't a bad idea though on wiring them to the parking lights. Doing it that way would give me control over when they came on.

    Great looking truck btw!

    @1bad2k he told me this is what he did "Tapped the power for white from the positive of the drl/ parking light bulb, then the turn signal amber from the positive of your turn signal"

    Edit: the shrouds do function with the turn signal, they switch to amber, and thanks! I still have more I want to do to it, but gotta saved up for that stuff haha

    I think I'll probably do it the same way, but do yours stay on even when you turn the headlights on like at night? That's my only concern.

    @1bad2k they do stay on with the headlights! What concern is it though? I'm curious
