:D :cool: I'm always bored so here's the new mod;


And that's just the tail lights, it's also wired into the brake lights. Also has the ability to be turn signals but I haven't gone to the store for diodes yet. DIY coming soon:)

Very creative! I like the way you took out the stock one, makes it look much more custom. Nice job Jason.

I've been wanting to do that too, but the length is/was the killer for me. Which length did you use?

BigK Cherry popper made his out of individual LED's, and mounted the. I think he has 30 or so. He also made a xB in the bumper out of LED's.

Oh okay, I though he might have used the "Line of fire" and maybe cut it or something...

Pep Boys sells the kit for $40 which comes with 3 strips, the xB's only need 2. I mounted them on the bumper under the seal but I'm going to take out the bumper and dremel them behind it for a cleaner look.

mounted it behind the door huh, kool i was hoping to hear they would fit there.

i found a simular kit online at http://reconaccessories.com
'cept this one is just a single 49" strip, there web site even has instruction for hardwiring it in to vehicals w/o towing hitches. (i.e. ours)
not only does it have the ability to be a running light, break light and turn signal it has white LED's that come on when you put it the car reverse!

I plan on getting this actuall kit with in a week or two i cant wait to install it!!
here is a pic of it in action (from there site)
