    street glow, neon looks better it covers a bigger surface area with light and the LED style only directs light one way and in your case it would be str8 down and wouldn't look right......

    Well I have Streetglow neon blue series on my S-10, and they are going on 8 years old and they are still running and the truck IS driven in the winter time. My friend bought a set of LED underbody's from Varad, and they were all plug and play and all you had to do was ground them to the frame and then run the hot wire up to the battery and bring the switch in the cab. But Kaiser-Wave is right, neon gives a way better spread versus the defined line of LED's. I am going to buy a set for my Silverado I have now, I am going with the 8 piece set from LiteGlow. It has the following:

    2- 72" tubes
    2- 48" tubes
    4- 12" wheelwell tubes
    Wireless controller
    $499

    This kit is for a TRUCK, 99.9% of kits out there are for cars meaning the tubes are smaller and look funny on a truck. A normal kit has 2-36" tubes, and 2- 48" tubes see what I mean?

    you can drill a small hole in your floor and reach the wires under through the carpet, i think theyre illegal to drive with them on :(

    theyre still pretty cool though.

    I just tryed to find a link for my light kit, but Stylin Concepts doesn't have it on there site. It's really hard to find a truck kit that is only four tubes, but UFO lighting makes one you can buy on ebay but it's expensive. ($800) That kit that you have highlighted looks good, now as far as the wires being too short that is a common problem. Some of the kits out have metri-plex plugs that can be taken off, and they sell plug-n-play extensions to make them reach. At any rate you don't want to splice ANY of the wires in the kit, because they will not work very well afterwards.

    Streetglow still makes a longer 4 piece kit for large trucks, it has 51" tubes and 48" tubes and that seems to be the longest one's I can find on the net.

    As far as legality goes, you can't ride with blue or red on, but the other stationary colors are fine. Don't use the scanning mode or strobe, because they will definately pull you over for that. Of course this is in Ohio, so I would check out your local laws.
