Weekend Additions

Added a 22" Tuff Stuff light bar (spot/flood) that 1 connected to #1 up fitter switch and moved my license plate. I also sprayed some VHT Night Shade tint on my left and right mirror amber lens.

Very nice - fits great

Do you use the new lights for regular driving?

I use the light bar instead of using high beams.

Looks like they have the amp draw backwards. 24v draw would be half of the 12v. Still easily handled by the upfitters

I'll snap a pic this evening. I can tell you that this thing is day light bright.

Yep, I was hesitant about hooking it up to the upfitter because of all the "where's this and that" I've seen. The open switch wires and pass through wires were fairly easy to spot, but like I've seen posted, the pass through wires under the hood were poorly placed and not very easy to get to much less connect to.

I also got some spacers from Lowes to bring the light up close to center in the bumper cut out. Overall pretty easy project.

Not the best representation, my phone compensates a little for lighting
