New Grille and Headlights

Here are my new Grille and Lights that I will be installing

Grille isn't anything special...but the price was right! $55 bucks lol



Going to rewire my fog lights to the Parking lights - that is where the LED strips get wired to as well. One switch for all.

Should look pretty good. Here is the truck its going on:

Looks great dude. I have the same headlights in chrome, they look really sharp with the headlight switch jumped like you're planning. Did mine the exact same way. If you don't have the DRL switch should be simple as jumping the brown wire to the yellow behind the switch, took me maybe 5 minutes.

Thanks!

I wasn't sure about these lights...but now I am sold on them. In person they are killer and matched my scheme perfectly.

Appreciate the heads on the install. Going to attach my fogs in the same line (with fuses) as well...so when my DRLs are on, I get the LED strip, DRLs and my aftermarket Fogs. Should be a nice setup

I agree, very nice! Was considering those headlights for mine and that pretty much sold me. Like the grill also.

Love the black grill, especially for that price! The odd oval thing and the sticker on the bumper looks a little adolescent but other than that NICE!

Gotta advertise for my job re: decals LOL

Bought the lights through my shop, but I won't post links since we are not paying advertisers here and don't want to break any forum rules (We are a Mopar shop, I just happen to drive a Ford...so I still get my parts that way ha)

Here is a daytime pic...I have to adjust...only think I don't like about these lights, only three physical connections to the truck, 1 on top and two below. But other than that fantastic pieces overall.

Looks good!

Did you work on adjusting the headlights so they fit as best they can?

Not yet, figured since I have to remove them to wire up the strips no sense. So I will do that all at once, most likely tomorrow.

Thanks!

I just went with some chrome amber bulbs. When they're off you don't get the amber reflection in the housing and it looks killer. When they turn on they act and appear just like your standard bulb though.

Been wanting to put the Switchback LED's in for a while, those suckers a crazy bright. Dual LED's so as running lights they shine white and with the blinker activated the white turns off and the amber LED's light up. Blinker turns off and the amber goes off and the whites turn back on. Proper install and function can be a little tricky from what I've read, some need resistors wired inline, some need to swap relays out.... I'm planning on doing them whenever I get around to going to LED tails out back.
