RECON Clearance Light Install

First of all, I want to thank Raul for the awesome deal on these lights. He is a great vendor. I would recommend him to anyone,so if your thinking of buying anything you should check out Stealth-Automotive. (fyi Raul did not pay me to say that )

I finally got my lights installed Saturday, it was much easier than I expected. I was a little nervous drilling the first hole in the cab of my truck, but after that it was smooth sailing.

The only thing I didnt like about the kit was the screws that were supplied. I went to the hardware store and bought some stainless steel nuts and bolts to replace the screws.

The first thing I did was cover my dash


Then I took both of the plastic pillar covers off, The drivers side was a PITA because of my quadzilla was in the way.



then I took the sun visors off


Taking the overhead console off was a little nerve racking, since it sounds like it is about to break into 100 pieces, but it came right down



I don't have any pics of me drilling the holes, but I taped everything off, and measured everything about 8 times before I did any drilling. I highly recommend a good set of drill bits for this job

I decided not to buy the ford wiring harness that is needed to finish the install. I found the parking light wire and used a wire tap to access the power



After that I soldered a 300 ohm resister between the lights and the power source and covered it with clear heat shrink tubing



Here is the final results





I dont think they are as bright as they should be, so im going to buy a different resistor and try that out. I will update the thread when i install the new resistor

If anyone has any questions on installing clearance lights just let me know
