Big Rig lights Cheap

So i saw that some of you did the big rig lights and started looking into it, But i wasnt happy with a $200-300 kit.

So i headed on down to Walmart to look around and walked out with 10 Trailer lights for $20

What ya think?

well started with the lights under the back doors. 1-2-3-4-5 all off one signal wire then ran the 2 wires from each side up battery area and used a relay to get a signal from the driver park lamp.

If that dont make much sense i can take pictures if you would like.

Total time was about 2 hours cause i kept breaking cheap bits to drill the lights

That make perfect sense to me. I was sure if you just tapped into the park light wire but the relay is a much better way to go.

Haha well that doesn't seem right, does it??? Wouldn't that mean that your parking lights are always on?
