    This is what it will look like soon. It will have more cab lights, halos...but will be the full 8 piece with black backgrounds, then I'm in the process of making the RBP replica grille, and then the mirror lights

    Looks good, i would use amber lights in the grill, as you are going to have other amber around the truck. One thing i would like to see is maybe some auxiliary lights behind the grill. Another thing is I think there's too many cab lights. If you want to do that why not just get a solid light bar on top?

    I have been thinking of doing lights in the grille just not sure on how i want them yet. And the cab light thing is just something I've always loved. I know tons of people hate it but that's just a thing i like on big trucks. And when my diesel conversion is done it's going on 37's so i think that they really wont be the focal point as they are in this pic with the truck on 33's

    Well, to be honest i would like to see this grill conversion on your truck.

    ah man i just don't do billets. I've tried to like them but i just can't. And the main reason i want to build the RBP replica is because they don't make them for the OBS and i want to stick out...more custom

    Cut out the billet and make the replica in that, i like those lights more then the grill.

    I like the ones on the mirrors. I actually saw a newer dodge, it was white, and had white LEDs hooked up to his running lights. I thought it looked pretty sweet as he let me cross the street and I was starring at his mirrors. As far as the LEDs on the side what would you be using? Do you have a specific product in mind and color? Are you thinking about a switchback LED so it would be white until you put your blinker on?

    Here is an example of one of GORecons products. It's their big rig light bar.

    No they would be amber lights on both the mirror and the rockers if i do the rockers. And they would both be hooked to the running lights and they will both be hooked to the blinkers. More than likely they will be very similar to the big rig kits where the there are a lot of LED's close together. The mirror lights are 1'' lights that will stick 1/8'' of the mounted surface and then i will smoke the lens so they do not stick out so much on the black mirror...They will also be a small LED

    Do you have a link to an example? I think they make the stick on strips that have black backgrounds.
