Installation of grill lights

Recommended Posts

After I installed mine I was not happy with the color of the lights recommended in this thread (yellow vs orange).  I wanted them to match my parking lights.  I researched a little more and came across F-150LED’s.  https://www.f150leds.com/products/15-18_raptor_grill_led?_pos=1&_sid=0de280cf8&_ss=r
these are extremely easy to install and look great.

Has anyone done this on a Silverado LTTB grill? I'm interested in doing this but want to see if how folks have handled attaching the lights to the LTTB style grill

The lights are about 1.5 inches wide and about 3/4 inch deep.  They are attached by 3m tape.  Don’t let that scare you.  These things are STUCK!

Thanks. I didnt read your earlier post about the f150 lights having 3m tape. Here I was thinking you still had to attached them like the other version.

trying to install the f150 LED lights but for some reason cant get them to turn on. I connected a fuse tap to right parking lamp fuse.

 

Anyone know why they don't get power?

 

Edit: got it to work

Would love to do this to my Sierra, did you take the grill off and drill a few holes for the wires coming out of the lights or is there a different way?

UPDATE: Don't waste your time on the Amazon sourced LEADTOP specific lights I used.  One of the lights burnt out after about 3 months followed by another a couple weeks later and a third one today.  Shows you get what you pay for.  FYI, the friction fitment held up GREAT.  They didn't move at all.

 

I need to find some high quality lights that don't burn out so quickly.  Did anybody find a better price for the 3 light Raptor looking setup shown in this thread.  The link provided says they cost $80.  I won't pay that much just out of principle

Just saved me 50 bucks, they seem far superior than the Amazon lights, I installed them on the TB grille they look integrated ill post pics as soon as I get the fuse tap I ordered, if anyone is still interested.

It was very easy.  I bought a micro fuse tap and connected the positive wire from the lighting harness to the right parking light fuse...the ground wire I simply pulled out a bolt (between the radiator and fuse box) and secured the ground wire with the reinserted screw.  The three lights are attached to the grill with 3m tape and are very secure.  I love the look they give to this  big grill! The lights are easily installed in 5 minutes and used the enclosed zip ties to help hide the wires...I soldered the positive wire to the micro wire tap and soldered the negative wire to the wire loop (not sure what you call the flat round washer with a wire crimp for mounting wires).

I'm looking to do the same set up and waiting for LEDs to arrive. Wanted to know which bolt did you use for the negative. Hoping to use your knowledge to make the install as painless as possible. Thanks.

      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?

      Unfortunately this is my first post here.  But thought my info would be helpful to others.  My new 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 Limited with the 6.2 has been in the shop for a couple days due to lifter failure.  The truck had right at 6,000 miles on it when the lifter collapsed and bent a push rod.  I called the dealer for an update, and they said parts should be in in the next day or two, then they'll replace the affected bank of lifters.....  I asked why they won't replace both banks since the failure occurred in less than 8,000 miles?  They told me that particular TSB procedure stopped at the 2021 model year.  The 2022's will only have the affected bank side replaced even if failure occurs in under 8,000 miles on your brand new truck.  I've opened a case with GM directly to try and get both banks replaced since the parts still seem to be substandard.  I don't want to be pulling my camper with my family, and have the truck fail on me again because they only replaced half of the defective parts.  I can't even get a loaner from the dealership while the truck is being fixed.  
       
      Aside from this current headache, I absolutely love our new truck.  No plans on getting rid of it, I just want it fixed the right way with parts that aren't inferior.
       
      Edit:  The truck has a build date of 12/21.  Unsure of engine build date, but have to imagine it's close to the truck's build date.

      My truck developed a new shake/hard vibration. While in park I feel it a little, but when I shift to Reverse the shakes starts. Then when I shift to Neutral, it's stops. When in drive, the shakes starts again. 
       
      Blower motor seems to be fine. 
      While in Park, the motor and belts look normal. As well as under the truck, nothing seems to be moving.
      Engine mounts looks solid.

      I've been wanting to install longtube headers on my 2007 sierra classic for awhile and now that I've noticed that the OEM exhaust manifold is cracked and one stud is broken I think it's the time to do so. Just wondering what info i should know before doing so. Do I need to have it tuned? I currently have a cold air intake, throttle body spacer and cat back exhaust but that's pretty much it.
