Installation of grill lights

You can use a fuse tap right on the parking light circuit in the fuse box in the front of the truck.

Fuse 34 is what you want to tap into.

You will have to cut a notch in the box. On the right hand side so that the wire doesn't get pinched. 

 

Make sure you add an inline fuse headed to whatever you are trying to power.

I ended up using fuse 42 to tap off of, right parking lights vs left, because the fuse tap I used had clearance there. I included a pic of the fuse tap I used and the lights I installed.

Awesome thanks. How’d you mount them?

I used a 1” aluminum bar from Homedepot drilled it to fit the lights. To mount I used some 1/4” x 1 3/4” flat head screws and some fender washers, they fit perfect in the plastic grill pieces.

 

I’ve been wanting to do this and bought some bolt lights a while back.  Would you mind posting a couple of close up pics of how you mounted the lights/aluminum bar to the grill?

Here is a couple of photos. I bolted between the horizontal supports in the grill. The 1/4” bolts fit perfect with fender washers.

      Like new, Pulsar LT for sale, bought direct from manufacturer. Box is included as well, just can't upload a pic of it for some reason.
       
      Had this installed on my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, took this off when I traded it in. Works great, ~10 months of ownership.
       
      Looking for $400, shipping included, within USA. Venmo/Paypal/Zelle preferred.

      What suggestions or advice is available for buying a GMC | Chevy truck? What should I watch out for -- the GOOD and BAD? 
       
      I want to come back to the GMC | Chevy family. For over 20 years, we owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself, and I LOVED that truck. Other than typical wear and tear -- I never had any problems or issues with my Suburban.
       
      I am looking at 2016-2022 -- GMC | Chevy 1500 | 2500 series, all trims (4x4), except the base models. My budget is around $35k plus'ish; yes, I understand my budget limits what I can get. I am a USAF retired veteran living off a fixed income.
       
      Yes, we tow hitch pull RVs and various trailers, but not as often as before. What are the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY these days on the GMC | Chevy trucks? Is the additional price for either diesel and/or 2500 worth it?
       
      SHORT STORY: so, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel 6cyl w/turbo Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with Chrysler | Fiat (FCA). They lied about the EcoDiesel, and after forced recall ECM updates, they sucked all performance and mpg from the truck. Buying a newish GMC | Chevy, I do not want to fall into what happened with my 2015 Ram. When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance.
       
      Thanks for any suggestions that you will provide -- Gary (ExFalconFxr)

      As the title says, post your long travel set up with the who and why! I'm tired of not being able to find long travel builds to copy off of. Custom or bolt on, doesn't matter. Post pictures of the before and after glass sides if you got them.
      If a thread like this already exists please share below or if you have a thread for your build. Hopefully this gets some serious attention for the full size community, the Toyotas get all the long travel attention.

      Hey Everyone-
      I have a 2022 AT4 (5700mi) and its it has a shudder/hesitation during steady and/or light throttle acceleration between 25 and 70 MPH.  Anyone else experiencing this or has and got it "fixed".  Reproduced it for a ride along with the dealer, but need to figure out a plan or approach to fix this.  They have mentioned maybe a fuel injector, maybe a new transmission....

      Thoughts? Recommendations?  

      Also, what site does everyone use to search for TSB's?
