What's the sound?
That's the sound of Ford Raptor Owner's getting their Jimmy's Rustled!
So, whenever I get approached with custom lighting jobs, I tend to play Devil's Advocate!
This is a past client that wanted to upgrade the lighting on his Ford F150.
He'd already purchased the Side mirror lighting upgrade kit (2 cheap LED strips), Bed Lighting Strips and some Front Hella Fog Housings.
After expressing interest in what else we could do I upgraded his truck with these:
Rock Light LED Puddle Lights on his mirrors
Quad Switchback LED Pods in his Grill
So, it's interesting to me that even Platinum Ford's don't have more stylish and upgrade side mirrors...they all come with the front facing amber reflector...but nothing is behind it.
So first thing was to cut that apart and install dual LED strips behind it.....one for turn signals and the other for running lights.
Then, whilst I was in there, I installed a super bright low profile LED rock light where the factory puddle light should have been had the mirrors came with it.
He then wanted to install some older fog lights he'd purchased a LONG time again....so after fabricating some mounts for them, I moved on to the front grill
This was fun because I knew some Raptor owner would be pissed....because he's yet another F150 owner that's copying their sacred look of the 3 Amber LEDs in the grill.
So....I switched it up. I went Quad Switchback Pods....this way it'll mimic the look...but offer actual functionality instead of just more amber light.
So now, everything is white and then the outer 2 LEDs turn Amber when a turn signal is applied....pretty nifty!
Moving on to the back....I installed his dual 20" LED strips so he'd have night lights when the truck is on...with a handy switch so that he can operate it whenever he'd like.
