recon lighting

I just ordered my Recon lighting White lightning tailgate bar and I have a few questions.
Has anyone installed these before? Are they easy or a pain?
Does anyone have the Big Rig lighting under their doors. I almost ordered them but I did'nt want my truck to get too out of hand. I would like to see them on a mildly modded Ford. Not the one on their website. I think it had every lighting product they make.
Thanks for the help. Any and all feed back is welcome.

I have done the tailgate bar. I just drilled some small pilot holes and used some sheet metal screws. Very easy. Looks great too.

Raul,
Do you sell Recon lighting? If so, how much are you asking for the Big Rig light sets for a Crew cab. If not sorry to bother you...

i have the white lightning. i tapped my wires into my main trailer connector. so i could still have my 4 pin avialable for towing and still be able to have my light bar light up. it wasnt hard at all. the hardest part is making sure you put it on to where it is visible i ordered mine like 5 months ago and i just recently had to screw it in cuz my tape came off after some mud got to it. but other then that its real easy and it looks bad ***

Thanks Raul. I am not sure what I want to do with the Big Rig lighting yet. I just don't want my truck to be too overboard. But part of me thinks it would look cool at night when I have my fifth wheel all hooked up....

To answer your questions.

Yes, easy.
Yes, unless you put 10 on each side, your fine.
Do a search on other Recon threads, I have several pictures of my truck on here. I need to send them to Recon for their site.

I like the lights and have gotten tons of compliments on them.

I just made a "y" harness so i can use my 4 plug and tailgate lights, works pretty good

as for using the double sided tape? i would STRONGLY reccommend drilling and screwing it to the body.

I also have the big rig lights. I love them, i just wish they mounted a little lower so you can see them as your walking up to the vehicle (gotta love remote start) you can see them on when your across the parking lot, but would like them a little more visible up close
