Adding LED puddle lights

I had an F-150 before I bought my SD, and one of the biggest things that I wished it had was puddle lights. So I decided to add some, which turned out great and was one the best mods you could do for $10.

I had to this to the SD, so I started it the other day and finished the passenger side, but not the drivers side (still looking for the right wire to tap into for the dome light on/off/dimming). They are mounted to the bottom side of my factory running boards/nerf bars. I don't have the pictures up yet, but will soon. However, just to give you an idea I'll post pictures from my F-150. If anyone wants more details on this I would be more than happy to pass along any and all information you'd like.

I was going to mention that, the picture is a bit hard to see because of the flash, but I will take a picture later tonight with my flash off so you can see them better. They are actually pretty damn bright.

Finished them up tonight, these are the best pictures I could do with my iPhone, sorry guys! Ill try and get some better ones later.

Looking at the side of the truck, passenger front door open


Looking towards the front-headlights are on which gives you something to kinda compare the brightness to

I like that. Good idea. Im not sure I could keep the underside of my running boards/truck clean enough though for them to be useable though!

I actually sealed them in clear silicone to make sure they were easy to keep clean and didn't get beat up too much. I didn't have any issues with the F-150, even with the snow and everything that the great Michigan climate throws out.

Great Idea. Which wire did you tap into on to get it to work with the dome light?

Theres a purple wire near the smart junction box on the passenger side kick plate that is intended for the running board lights, and I just tapped into that one. So far so good, they are working out great.
