    You know... That service is something that I may be able to provide? :notsure:

    Sell the lights and provide a nicely wired up product if they wanted.

    Okay - Here's the going into the weekend update. I have talked with Baja every single day this week. They have parts in hand to cover every part that was backordered. They have been furiously building them this week, and told me that they are shipping each day as production allows. If you are not one of these gentlemen below, are still missing pieces, and ordered before May 1 PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Any additional orders coming in are going to be a few days late getting out as they are severely backordered, and it's just taking time for the units to get built. Anticipated ship date for anything ordered from 5/8 and on is right now at 5/17.

    For those of you who are on this list below... Please note that your exceptional patience is not going unnoticed. I am doing everything in my power to first and foremost get you parts so that you can finish your builds. I'll be in touch with each of you with some additional info later once we can get some confirmation that parts are in hand. They had indicated to me that they may have parts hitting the road Friday, which they may have done, but they are terrible at getting tracking numbers to me in a timely manner. Please know that if/when @MESO does another drop I'll be loaded for bear, and have everything in stock already. This one has been a fiasco trying to get everyone set up.

    Has anyone installed the camera version yet? I’m dying to see the how much of the bed / back is in the field of view with this option. I’ll have to live vicariously through others since I missed out on the initial purchase.

    Hey MESO,
    Not sure if I am missing something but your websites says these are sold out? Will they be available or where can I find it?

    I may have something for you soon. I have the Assembly, but not all the lights yet. I was thinking more along the lines of rear dashcam as opposed to cargo-cam. I am having second thoughts and depending on view, it may end up as a plug-n-play offering. If not, the KC5 will end up being the plug-n-play offering. Although, I think the KC is the beast.

    That’s really awesome of @memario1214 for the BD updates. It was not his fault(we kind of bombarded him with rock light orders) after all the housings launched. I’ll have to prepare him for the next run lol.

    Also,
    I am working with a seasoned light member here @crashnburn80 to test ALL the rock lights on the market. Are you getting the performance you are paying for? What IS the perofrmance, and how do they stack up to each other?
    I think the results will be very surprising...;)

    It is going to be a fun project to see how all the major brands compare. :)

    Thanks.
    If KC made the red LEDs actually red LEDs, rather than white with red lenses, I’d agree the KC option is nicer looking, but I just can’t get over the different colored lenses. But the option of a bed camera / rear view when tailgate is down on the BD option is huge for me, even if I don’t like the BD light price. But even if yours is wired as a dash cam, please post the field of view.

    :spy: The way I read it... @MESO did just that with his post.

    So, you may want to give the factory a "heads up" to keep production on high. :D

    Lol we've already shored up the details on the dark web. He's just trying to make me nervous.

    Ok, I did some test fitting and it is not for me. The view really is for the bed and the area immediately surrounding the bed. I have everything to completely build this, but think it probably best for the new owner to assemble to their own liking. Of course I could build it out as well... decisions.

    That would make a really good rear dash cam. Good angle to it.
    I would use it just to check on things in the bed as it looks like it covers almost the entire bed
