Those look great! I love how low profile they are, good job on the install too spacings and placing is perfect.

Ok so maybe during checking for proper volts with my volt meter before the install I didn't ground something well enough and both of my corners bulbs burned out...so they are all good now! and I also put a 20 amp fuse behind the a-pillar for the cab lights just to be safe

Did you run it as a relay switch hook up or just spliced the power for the lights into it ?

If you spliced the brown wire for the cab lights, running a 20a fuse between the cab lights and brown wire isn't doing anything other than causing extra clutter. There's already a fuse for the running lights, so there's no need for another one. And since they're LED, you shouldn't have any issues with power comsumption.

Let's see some day and dusk shots!

Ok, I think you've convinced me to buy some, but in the clear style, not smoked... I just realized you had them in the first post! haha my bad!

Looks awesome man! I'd love to see some dusk shots, to see them on with moderate lighting to see how bright they are!
