Need some light ideas for under my tonneau cover


Recommended Posts

I have an 18 Silverado with an Undercover Ridgelander tonneau cover. The led light strip crapped out and I need a replacement idea. I hunt and it’s helpful to have light back there for changing in the early morning or late nights. I want something LED- any good ideas?

 

Thanks

I bought two 4' LED strips from Amazon and wired them into the reverse lights.  They provide an amazing amount of light are are easy to turn on at night by clicking the unlock button on the remote.  Much easier than reaching in and hitting the switch on the dash.

Did you just splice off the reverse lights to power the lights or just to trigger a relay?

I agree. On my 2020 I spliced in an
Amazon set but, if you’re budget allows it saves a lotta bs to have the wiring harness. However, the Amazon kit held up great for 90k miles or so until I traded the 2016 in on my 2020.
