    Thanks!
    No problem about the connectors it’s all good!!
    I just used crimped connectors, and shrink wrap. Only 3 wires. If I ever change it, I have enough wire there to be able to cut it.

    They are brighter than the stock cargo lights. The KC lights are not angled down. But they do project out (up, down, left and right) well.
    I work nights, so I’ll get a pic for you tonight with my bed cover open and my bed lights off.

    Remove. It would be the same as painting your door seals.

    It seems like the BD's are angled down for better bed lighting. Yes please do!

    Yea, probably. But since I have a bed cover and LED bed lights, not an issue.

    Well I spent the day testing my BD lights and two of the three red lights are definitely not working properly. One of them will not light up at all and one will only light up 50%. I tested each of three red lights and the two white lights individually, several times. I called in a buddy for backup and we tested some more and then some more again. I'll need to follow up with BD to get them replaced, but what a disappointment after such a short time.

    I tried, but my bed cover folded up all the way blocks the light. Folded up 2 out of 3 panels and took pic. Most light hits the tailgate. Lucky I have bed lights.
    Maybe someone without a bed cover can take pics and get a better light output in the bed.
    But damn they are bright!

    Going through my brake light bin and doing some spring cleaning.
    Here is a chance to score some housings for cheap!

    RED BOXES are UNPAINTED and may have small blemishes(sanding should take care of it)
    GREEN BOXES are painted and no flaws- good as new.
    What you see is ONLY what I have available. You can checkout here
