Rears are easy, your front h/l are differant than mine but there was not a lots of space either I'll see if I can get a pic to give you a idea, IC-Smoke installed his in his 07 which has the same h/l you have

Joel when do the front lights have someone hold the light (lens facing the sky) and then you can drill from the bottom, I made the mistake of just setting the light on the work bench and drilling..... now I have some shavings in the light that wont come out:doh:

I put the rear bulbs in the reverse light which was a PITA as I had to trim the mounting tab on the strobe to fit where it was somewhat flat and not going to interfere with the light bulb assembly. Make sure you use silicone around each bulb as I did not do and I ended up with condensation in my reverse lights (as seen)

Perfect, thanks Ian. :thumbsup: The front where you mounted yours is the only place I could see mounting them, but was worried about the surface not being flat. I have a different idea for the rear though. I was going to put one in the reverse and one in the brake light cover coming in from the inside side of the cover. I'll take pics as I go.

you gotta be carefull and make sure there is enough space in the housing for the heat from the strobe to disapate.. I've seen a lot of melted back up light housings.

in my STD cab under the tool tray were a couple plugs that I made a X in with a razor, pulled the wires thru then I put some silicone to seal it back up. The power unit sits under my passenger seat, and the control box is up by the cup holders/cubby hole

:thumbsup:

Sweet, thats what I was wondering. Glad to know there are some rubber plugs back there, wasn't really wanting to do any drilling!
