Win A Pair Of Sylvania Cube-X LED Lights!

Recommended Posts

  1. Yes.  Top priority is reviews as they tend to help balance the price vs. quality ratio.
  2. No. The longer answer is "it depends."  How much of a savings over the higher priced option OR how negative are the bad reviews?  Those would influence the decision but I would not mount crappy/cheap items on my $50K truck!
  3. No.  Non-functioning product is a definite "no go" for me.

1. No, My truck is getting old, I'm saving for something newer and I'm not big into much accessories anyway. 

2. No I base my purchases heavily on reviews. I don't just go buy the most expensive thing for perceived quality based on price either. 

3. No

Yes. I prefer to personalize my vehicle and have something that is different from just the ordinary vehicle, even if only slightly. My top priority is Looks, any modification I even consider doing to my vehicle has to look appealing to me. After i have found something I like the look of I want something that is quality, then I consider price, finally I will consider reviews. A lot of negative review might scare me away from a product, but I would still consider purchasing a product with no reviews.

2. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO)

No.

3. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?

Yes, depending on what it is. There are a number of cosmetic products that serve no real purpose. I have a "roll bar" on my current truck that will do absolutely nothing in the event of an actual rollover. As far as lighting products are concerned then, no. If I am buying a light it better work.

  1. Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in?

Yes. My top priority when choosing accessories is quality, assuming my budget allows for the best quality. Second, I want to see if the price is worth it, or if there's another option that might be more cost effective. Whatever brand I end up choosing, I always check reviews of that product, and pictures of those applications.

  1. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products?

No. If it’s cheap and has negative reviews, I would not buy it. In most cases, you get what you pay for. I’m a firm believer of the idea ‘buy once, cry once’.

  1. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?

No. An accessory needs to be of good quality, not just good looks. If the accessory doesn’t perform the task that it’s designed for, then what’s the point?

    1. YES. Quality/Reviews/Looks/Price/Value are things I will consider before purchasing any accesory
    2.  
  2. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO)
    1. I will opt for the Higher-end products. Cheap products are rarely good and Good products are rarely cheap.
    2.  
  3. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?
    1. Form and Function of the product are very important to me. I will not purchase something that looks good but functions terribly and I will also not purchase anything that looks terrible but functions good.

    IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews)
    • YES - My "TOP" priority would be quality when accessorizing my truck.   Prices, looks and reviews help make decisions, but quality is #1.  
  2. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO)
    • No - been there done that.  Buying cheaper priced items often ends to early replacement of those parts.  Negative reviews provide a bit of warning at times, but have have to be taken in context.  Quality items may cost a bit more at times but usually perform better and last longer.  
  3. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?
    • No - I'm typically buying accessories to use those accessories.  Looks plays a factor when choosing between different brands/models but they have to perform.

    IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) -  Top priority is Looks. If it doesn't look good then I am not worried aabout the others. 
  2. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) - NO
  3. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? - NO. Looks is a big factor, but if it is fake or doesn't work well then it is a waste of time and money.

  1. Yes I'm interested in accessorizing my c/k pickup quality, price and look are all factors I consider, reviews matter only slightly since people all have different opinions. That being said if I see only negative reviews there may be something to consider there. 
  2. No I would not purchase something if it's cheaper even if it had all negative reviews. 
  3. As tempting as it may be to buy something strictly because of looks in spite of it not working. Is like getting married because your friends say you should, seems like a good idea at the moment, but in the long run its not likely to be a great idea or work out.

    IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews)
    *** I choose accessories in this order 1.look 2.quality 3.price 4.reviews. Reason is, when I buy truck I first figure out the use, is this one going to be my hauler, or my executive show truck, lifted crazy or moderate, do the accessories fit well on the truck, does it take away from the truck look, does it overpower the overall look I'm trying to achieve.
  2. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) .... Hell No. Unless you're selling the truck soon, then try to sell it away from where you live.
  3. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?....  same answer as 2. Truck people can see a poser a mile away, and you will get no respect. Now... If you don't care people talking about you the moment you walk away... The go ahead and put shit on your truck so it looks like a.movie truck.   Nothing works out looks good

      Quick how to and review of the Cab Over America wireless cab lights.
       
      Link to parts: https://caboveramerica.com/
       
      The parts: For just under $400 you get a set of 5 battery powered wireless cab lights.  Each light consists of 4 parts; the aluminum mounting plate, rubber gasket, LED/PV panel module, and the top lens.  The top lenses can be had in clear, amber or smoke.  In our case, we went with smoke. 

       
      You also get two remotes to control the lights.  Overall the quality is high and what I would expect from something in this price range.  You also get some small lenses that can be place inside the cab lights to change the lights to amber while still using a clear or smoke outer lens.  Lastly you are given a Cab Over America tape measure.  We laid the tape out but ended up using a tape measure for all measurements. 
       
      The install:
      First step was to decide on how you will be playing out the lights.  We went with the two edge lights and 3 concentrated in the middle.  Others may go with the even spacing all the way across, completely up to you. Here's a test fit. Also shows you the clearance with the shark fin.  Remove the two nuts, lens, LED, and gasket so you are just left with the aluminum bracket with screw posts.  It was easier to measure and mount the brackets without all the extra parts.  We also bent the brackets a bit to fit the counter of the roof in the location they'd be installed.  Here they are laid out in position.  Wipe down the front 10" of your cab with Isopropyl alcohol. This is to prep the surface for better adhesion. Starting with the cab light nearest to the shark fin, measure 4.5" up from the windshield and 4.5" from the rain gutter to the front stud.  This will locate the front mounting post.  The rear post of the drivers side cab light should also be 4.5" from the gutter. Using a marker to make temp markings so when you remove the tape backing you can guide the bracket into position.  Remove the tape backing, heat up the double stick tape, and install using your guidelines. Repeat for the passenger side light. Find the center of the windshield, measure 4.5" straight back, this will locate the front stud of the center light.  Make sure the mounting bracket is straight and mark guide lined with a marker, remove tape backing, heat up the tape, then install. For the side center lights, we offset the lights 7.5" from the center light centerline.  Measuring 7.5" from the center light's stud to the side light studs we were able to locate the side lights. Both the front and back studs of the side cab lights are 7.5" from the respective studs on the center light bracket.  After all the metal brackets were installed the rubber gaskets were reinstalled, LED modules installed, and the lenses were screwed down. Last step was to sit back and enjoy the lights.  They look great with the switchback mirrors!  
      Here is a video of the install if you don't like reading!
       
      Thanks!

      I would like to change the regular bulbs in my Front turn signals on my RST to LEDs. Does anyone know what bulbs these are (they are marked 855)? Any recommendations on LED's that won't require resistors?

      I have a low beam out on my 2013 1500. I'd like to replace them with leds but I'm not sure which ones play well with the auto lights and drl stuff. Anyone have suggestions or reviews on leds that are on the current market?

      I have a pair of factory headlights with diode dynamics switchback leds and morimoto hids.
      The hids are incredibly bright and the switch leds are bright as well.
      Also installed is the Klearz amber delete.
      The amber you see in the pic is an amber colored bulb.
      Can ship, buyer pays shipping cost.
      I can box them in the Anzo headlight boxes.
      $500.00 OBO
