So, I've been wanting to put some daytime running lights on the EX.
I've seen a bunch of aftermarket stuff out there, and I really can say I haven't found to much out there that I like.
All the ones that have the LED's in the light assembly just look all sorts of 'meh' in my opinion.
I like the look of the factory F250 grill as well (call me a simple man,) and didn't want to change it up to much.
So I started hunting around and found something that I think is going to work out for me.
So first here - starting with the factory honeycomb side grill.
As you can see with this shot - a little bit of flaking that I'll want to clean up.
With the grill off - some rattlecan touchup on the header panel.
Here's my little bit of creativity...
After searching and finding some LED lights, that are weather sealed of ebay - these fit perfectly into the honeycomb spaced segments nicely.
Sad part, is these had to come from China - I could not find any U.S. provider for these. I'll post another pic of the LED unit itself later - didn't think to take one before putting them in.
These are a post style - that has a nut that screws on to the back.
With both sides in - and grille in for mock up.
Obviously I still need to wire it up and run all the leads.
I haven't seen anything like this on any truck yet, and for something so simple - kind of supprised I haven't.
Should look and work good when all is said and done.
I'll post more pic's as I get everything wired.
