glennp_1999 said:Yes I have one of the bling lights installed in my truck. Install was a little tricky since there is almost no room for the wires to go through the firewall. I was able to find a small hole with a rubber grommet on it pop it out and it was easy from there on. One thing about the bling lights is that the wiring that comes with it is to short. Had to buy some wires and shrink wrap at radio shack I already have the solder iron so that help a lot. It took me almost the whole day to do it I made sure that the wires didn't show. If you look under my hood unless you know what to look for you will never know it's there. Had to snake the wire carefully so it won't touch anything.
Once the wires are all done there was the matter of aiming the lights. That was a PITA spent to much time on this more than I would like. Eventually I was able to finish the damn install after much determination.
Unfortunately, I don't have pics of the install to show you guys what I did. Just be ready for the little details that is involve in the install. Other than that it's should be straight forward DIY job for the weekend.
The question regarding the cover you have to look under and behind the bumper. You will see a small plastic clip or hook I don't know how else to describe it. Just push it out of the lock position and push the cover upward. Now you have to put some force on it otherwise it won't get loose. It should pop out easily after that.
jumbojeff said:Thanks for all the info. I was wondering where you ran the wire through the firewall. I heard some people pull it through the hole where the hood release is. Will this affect anything? glennp how and what did you fasten the wire to? Where did you put the switch?
How bright is your halo ring?baseballfanz said:I have Hella Optilux which is very similar to the one Bling Lights sell.
It's pretty bright, that picture was taken in the evening when it was still light out.dragonhead08 said:How bright is your halo ring?
Mine are so dang dim its not even worth it. I need to pick up a new set cuz one of mine was hit by a rock but I'm concerned that the nex set will be even worse.
I replace the factory fog lights with these so I use the factory wiring. I just had to use two relays to make it work the way I want it. When the parking light come on the halo come on, when I switch the OEM fog light switch ON the halo goes off and the fogs come on.dragonhead08 said:What did power source did you tap into? I taped into the side turn markers.
Thanks for the info BTW

ANY PICS?????PJLAVELL said:I installed the bling lights yesterday with help from the forum.Gixxer gave me the tip on mounting the lights in the plastic covers from the bumpers.It works just have to tweek the direction of em.The thing that i liked was they came with switch that i mounted to my kick panel.I ran the remote wire that came with the lights to my remote wire to my amp.The lights won't come on until i hit the on button from the switch and i did not have to go in my fuse box,bulb stalk or anything.The wire that came with my lights is plenty long enough and the multy colored LED is really good.I recommend these lights to anyone
