Thread: LED strip

  1. #1

    Unhappy LED strip

    Hey guys,


    Anybody have any suggestions on what I should get? I sell all sorts of aftermarket lighting and finally I want to mount a 26.5" LED Light Bar to the front of my truck but I don't want a big bull bar . I want something low profile. Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Good morning Kayce....
    I guess first off You should stop by the New members thread and give yourself a quick introduction, and maybe post a pic of your ride, so we might be able to share some ideas with you....

    I agree w/ @Dirty Dog having some pics of the ride will definitely help. And if you are a new member definitely check out the memo intro section. This way other members can get to know you and you ride which will help when it comes to making recommendations.

    What, exactly do you want to do with a LED strip in the front? Where do you intend to mount it? Will you tie it to your DRL's? Your fogs? Your lows? Can you describe a little better what your intent is?

    I would either tie it in with my fogs or run another switch and tie it into my subs power line with an in-line fuse. But yeah i saw one on a Duramax the other day had it mounted in between his fog lights and was I'd say around 18"s it looked pretty bright and was extremely bright I think it would look good with my headlights but was wondering if anyone else had done this and how they like it.

    I've not done it, as I have a semi-hidden winch carrier up front betwee my fogs.

    I saw a NNBS Chevy with pure clear LEDs around the fog light holes or squares and it looked good. He also had some red ones in the mirror housing under the mirrors that went on with the blinkers and brake lights. Looked pretty good. If I'm really bored and I have clear LEDs lying around I'll put em to use up front somehow.



    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.
