Default Re: My Custom LED Modded 3rd Brake Lights (KY)

long time no update!

been designing & testing some new ideas & new led's & i'm close to bringing something new to prime time.

new cargo & solid red ranger/mazda/sport trac and coming soon the "clear" super duty 3rd brake lights.

what could be different than previous 3rdbl led conversions you may ask???
light output. massive blinding light output. i'm doing some cool stuff with higher wattage led's which require larger heatsinks & even cooling fans that will likely pi$$ off anybody unlucky enough to be stopped behind you.

pics & videos to come shortly.

i have a few more crazy ideas in mind but still in the design stage right now.

You mean one of these?
Got it today and once installed I was all smiles! Once it got dark I tried it out and dam, uber bright. Made the mistake of looking up while trying to get a pic and blinded me for a second

This thing is super cool, glad I got one and the very first one off the production line

Glad you like it!

That is actually #0000 prototype, you have the first ever completed prototype model.
I've made a few small changes to them now, mostly to make assembly easier on me, but they're still gonna be extra stupid bright

"production" #0001 just shipped out today, #0002 is in process now.

next up will be solid red version

anybody interested feel free to drop me a pm & we'll get the ball rolling for ya.

I'm assuming this is a direct bolt up? Or is there some wiring to be done to install it?

100% plug-n-play

I use the OEM connectors for a super simple install.

No additional wiring or modding needed.

Is there a potential price point or range you might be willing to throw out to give a general idea? Just curious

Long time no bump!!

I've been refining my design a bit (to make it a little easier to put them together, but the light output is still stupid bright) and I'm nearly finished with a new batch of Ranger Cargo, Ranger All Red & a VERY limited number of Super Duty models.

These are based on my 2016 "brightest in the world" model with a few minor changes... you probably won't even notice the changes & they'll be hidden once you install it anyhow

I have plans to put a couple of these on evilBay but they will be a bit more expensive there to help cover the fees, but all my Ranger friends will get the best deals on them

Cargo light versions $95+sh
All red versions $90+sh
Super Duty versions $TBD
