    I like both designs, the BD one is super clean and more stealth but I think the KC's are brighter.

    It sounds like the first run will be 50 of the kc type......I didn't believe there has been any mention of the BD housing.

    I like both for different reasons, and I think the KC put out more light

    I noticed that the new raptors have the third brake light set up as a running light also.....I guess you'd have to have a dual element led to do that

    Working on it! Probably not this week as I’m trying to get my switchback signals out the door..
    I run Baja rock lights in my grill on a voltage regulator. 100% bright during the day, and drop to ~10V which is about 60% brightness for night. Works perfect

    I am switching to an access cab next month, and I’ve been thinking of a way to install a bed light like the double cabs. This is the answer! Lots of second gen people would be interested too, I’m sure.

    I set him up as an official dealer for us, so he can sell the lights with the housing now. @mesojdm, will the website be updated so folks can add the lights to their order from your website? Or is that something that's in the works for later batches?

    Or, if I may suggest, for the 3rd brake light, have 2 options, one with and one without lights (having the price reflect it). Then it's just a matter of indicating how many of each for the 5 included.

    Then have a separate spot for any KC lights he sells as a distributor for you.

    Just my 0.02, but as that's Canadian it's not worth much with our exchange rate now. :(
