Better to ask the dealer to be sure. Hopefully they are pre-wired. Mine came with lights from the factory.
Nissan Part No.: 999T6W3398 for the kitThe answer to this question would also interest me as I am considering buying the light kit for my running boards...Thanks!
I purchased this these 5 foot LED strips for $30. I got one set for the running boards and one for the truck bed. They are bright!
5 foot LED strip
I am not using their wiring harness/switch, I am tapping right into the cargo lights. So not only will they come on with unlocking/door opening, but I can switch them on with the cargo light switch to light up the ground and truck bed.
Install instructions for the OEM kit look more difficult than just tapping the cargo lights too. This kits fuse is a 3 amp, so I'm guessing the draw is low enough to not warrant running a power wire straight from the battery or using a relay, especially since all the other courtesy/cargo/interior lighting in my truck are LED's, the load on the system is already much lower over all than OEM.
I also like that I can mount this LED strip in such a way that it lights up the upper part of the running boards and the ground. You'll notice with the OEM kit that the top of the running board isn't illuminated.
I haven't done the install yet, so I don't have photo's.
For the running board lights I'm thinking of tapping into the cargo light on top of the roof and running wires behind the liner, then drilling the floor up near the foot wells (similar to the OEM light kit instructions). There are already a number of grommets under the truck body, you can drill from the underside through the grommet holes location up through the floor & run you wire through the OEM grommet to the outside.How are you attaching them to the courtesy and/or cargo lights? I have not successfully been able to hook anything into the factory wiring without messing it up?
Any word on this?? How easy was it? Pics??I finally picked them up today. When I install them, I'll post pics of how it goes.
Any update on the installation Rico387?I finally picked them up today. When I install them, I'll post pics of how it goes.
Sorry to leave you guys hanging. I had surgery on my foot (chilectomy) and I am still limited on what I can do. The lighting kit is still laying on the floor in my shop.Any update on the installation Rico387?
