    Nope, no blinking. They only come on with the puddle lights. I might do up some little control boxes in the future that would take inputs from the door triggers so that they can come on when a door is open too, but for now I'm happy with just having them come on with the puddle lights.

    And SurrealOne, I'll take some daytime pictures later today.

    Alright, here are the daytime pictures. First, the LED strips against the body of the truck, looking at the from below:

    Next, Looking at the truck from a distance with the LED strips on it. In reality, you can see the little white dots from the actual LEDs from a distance, but they are close enough together that it looks like one continuous line, and from standing height it looks like it is just the seam between the body and the running boards. You can't see the brown background from standing height.

    Finally, the factory puddle lights in the bottom of the mirrors.

    Mod #16 & 17: LED reverse lights and Daytime Running Lights. I've had these done for a while but apparently haven't actually posted them in my mod thread. So anyway, here they are. They come one with the puddle lights when I unlock the truck at night so now all of my entry lighting is LED and matches.





    Mod # 18: I got my switch panel in my overhead console fixed by repairing the ground connection. Now its done and everything is working. The only thing left to do is run the wiring for the accessories to the switches and hook stuff up.

    The lighting is tied into the dash light circuit, so it comes on when the dash lights are on. The power is pulled from the constant power for the homelink and map lights, and will only be used to trigger relays that will power the accessories so nothing is overloaded.

    I used the method used on this site for creating custom gauge faces to design the custom panel. I mounted that layer onto a layer of acrylic plastic and used epoxy & JB weld to mount everything to the inside of the console.

    That would suck for me. I like finding ways to wire things up. My next projects will be the relay box to control everything that the switches will operate, and installing LED underdash lighting. The kit I have is from IKEA... I just cut out the 120V plug and the 120V to 12V converter box. I'll wire it up and have one strip for each side of the dash and one for under each front seat so all 4 spots will have lighting. And its color selectable too...

    And once my relay box is done, I'll also be adding one of those nice LED off road lights behind my grille. I got it for free and its really bright. I can't think of the brand off the top of my head, but that'll come up once I get to installing it. I have already custom built a bracket... now I just need to complete the wiring so I can put it in.
