So the Fedex man came with my Recon Big Rig Lights today
(thanks Raul from Stealth Automotive Home Page
). It took about 30 minutes total to install these lights. Very easy instructions. I did have to break out my Chiltons manual so that I could refer to the wiring diagram to make sure I tapped into the right wires.
The Recon lights come with three wires on them that are about 6' long coming right off the light housing. All you have to do is fish the wires through the fender wells and run them along the hood rail. Then you remove the two screws that hold in the turn signal assembly. I found that having a set of hemostats handy to catch the screw was needed (I lost the first screw). Then you just simply connect the wires in the configuration below by using the supplied quick splice connectors. Then ground the black wire to the metal frame for the light housing with a self tapping sheet metal screw using the provided and already attached wire loop on the black wire. Turn on lights and turn signals to make sure that they work. Re-install the turn signals then move on to mounting the supplied clamps to hold the light bar on using the supplied sheet metal screws to the lip just under the door frame. The supplied clamps are sweet and look very nice installed. Then just zip tie all the wires with the supplied zip ties. Done.
The wires are hook up in this configuration:
Recon Red (Positive running light) connect to Brown wire
Recon White (Turn signal Positive wire) Connect to
Drivers side (Green/White) Pass Side (White/Blue)
Recon Black (Ground Wire) I used a self tapping screw and mounted to metal light housing.
Here are some pics and a video of the lights in action. It is hard as he11 to get a picture of lights as they are blinking.
