    You can always make the clear into a diffused.

    You kid... but I seriously thought about doing that and getting 4 of those white button lights to stick on the cover of the centerbolt holes. That is.... once I get my hands on one. :annoyed:

    @Taylor@KC HiLiTES I’m in need of some spare lens covers. Do you sell them separately? Thanks

    They look like a small version of the old police lights or the old dome LEDs, but the size of your pinky tip.

    Yep, but they were sticky-back surface mount, so it would be really just routing the thin wire. I think 1/2-3/4 OD. Probably the equivalent of MESOs v1 map lights.

    It would be cool to get purple or blue ones so it would act like the old blue dots.

    ....or have red ones as running lights.
    I’ve noticed a few raptors where the third brake is also a red running light.

    Yup...even the older raptors had the 3 red running lights in the 3rd brake(IIRC)
    Great...now we are going to imitate them even further and get flamed:bananadead:

    Ha true!

    You need to make a raptor plastics kit!

    I'm very curious what these are looking like on your trucks. So far I believe only one member has posted the installed version. Those of you who have installed this, can you take some pics from a few angles for us? I'd love to see how the bed illuminates, what the red looks like from the tail, etc. Thank you kindly!

    Hey everyone and @mesojdm , you may wanna look at these suckers. They're caps that fit perfectly in the opening of the Cyclones and would finish it off nicely. We don't sell/resell them, but maybe one person can buy a set of 100 (or Meso for 1000 which would work for 200 total KC 3rd brake light housings) and distribute from there. Just wanted to pass along the info to you all to help with a super clean install!

    part number SMF3/4BK1 if the link doesn't work.

    Thanks for the tip!
    I’m actually including these snap grommets in the hardware kit. They fit pretty good( even a dab of silicone for extra security). I like that they are smooth and clean looking. Although the rubber grommet like you posted can be a better seal.

    Oh! Sweet. I didn't realize you were already including something. All good - that one looks awesome!
