I like them. This may be obvious, but how did you turn the gauges red? Isnt the "filter" green?

Looks good. I would just use one of those 7" strips for your license plate.

all you do is power to 12 volt and ground? would you recommend the larger one over the 7 inch?

I wanna do something like that!

You should write up a How To: Tutorial thing


It would be incredibly appreciated, by more than a few I'm sure.

Oh Sure, I'll work on a write up for you guys, I didn't think to see if there was one, I just assumed that the forum had one for the 1st gen stuff, I guess not so ill get working on it !

So I mounted my LED Licence plate light on my roll pan, what do you guys think ?




Oh, And about the green filter on the guages, YES there is a filter, you remove the guages and pop them out, they are removable, so you can put them back to stock if you wish.

I would try and angle the license plate light more towards the plate. It looks like it lights up the ground a good bit behind the truck and not a lot of the plate.

Yea, it's the exposure that makes it look that way, I can't angle the light anymore twards the plate as it is stuck to the roll pan with double stick tape and that's just the angle of the roll pan above the plate.

I suppose I could unmount it and install a plastic wedge of some kind to angle it more, I do see what your saying but in person it looks just fine.

Thanks guys !

Troy.
