Default How to Wire an LED Light Bar (Project Night Light)

Hey guys,

So here is the final episode of project night light where I show how to wire the light bar properly. I also show the light bar in action at the end on the trail.

Let me know what you think!

That looks awesome, I never thought about putting the switches in the door. Great idea.

Hey dogfish246/ chrisfix/ Mike
How difficult would it be to edit the op, and add the first two parts to that post, and have them all together?

Dude, this is an awesome video!

Very informative and extremely thorough. What I like most about this video is that you show what the light bar looks like off/on while in the driver seat on a trail. I'm looking to do this but for a behind the grill mount and can't find anyone who shows the off/on light comparison on a trail with pictures or video.

Does anyone have a behind the grill LED lightbar that would be willing to take pictures/video or knows somewhere online that I could look at???

I tried looking it up on Youtube and it's always people just showing how to install it on their vehicles. Then of course at the end they show the light installed on the vehicle with the light bar on... but they never show you the perspective from the driver seat on a trail. Basically if a behind the grill LED lightbar hardly lights up anything... well then I don't think I want to waste my time/money.
