Got a package today

Today I got a package from recon. I ordered a bunch of lighting and accessories.
1) elliptical oval led driving lights
2) projector back up light kit
3) smoked led third brake light
4) smoked side mirror led lenses
5) smoked cab lights
Everything installed pretty easy. I am having a shop do the lights. I don't feel like messing with them. I plan on wiring them to the up fitter switches. I know the switches have different amperage. I was figuring on using switch 1 for fronts And switch 2 for back ups. I would like to maybe also hook the high idle up to a switch if I can. And keep one open for perhaps a compressor if I want to run bags at some point. I can't wait to get the lights installed. The recon parts seem to be of pretty nice quality.

Honestly no during the day it's not that bright. I think the LEDs are brighter at night tho. Update on balance of my project. I went by my local machine shop. Great guys. Two father and son lariat powerstrokes in the driveway. So they were ford guys and quickly helped me out. He fabed me up drop brackets to go in the factory holes behind the bumper. And they positioned my lights perfectly. He made them in all of thirty mins. Then I went to a local sound shop to get them wired up. I wired the front led driving lights to auxiliary switch 1 and the back up lights to switch 2.

I think I may have to tilt my front driving lights down a little right. It looks like they are lighting up the sky. Truck is filthy.

Do you have a backup camera? If you do, does the light wash out the picture?

Anyone have any tips for aligning them? Right now it looks to me like they are pointing up too high. They are lighting up the sky. Maybe I should tilt them down a little? How close should the beam of light be to the truck?Got a package today-imageuploadedbyautoguide1370399007.178454.jpgGot a package today-imageuploadedbyautoguide1370399020.394544.jpg
