Add spot/flood light to bed rail

Recommended Posts



I want to add a spot/flood light to the top of each bed rail pointing out toward the side of the road so I can see the deer better coming out of the woods at night.    I was thinking about taking power from the lights under the bed rails that illuminate the bed with the switch below the AC.   Do you think that wire is enough guage to handle a 18 watt led pod light?  Or you think its too much?

If you tap into the power for the bed lights, you won't be able to use them if you're in motion. If you're going to do this, your best bet would be to wire them up completely independent of the existing truck wiring harness or possibly tap into the fog lamp wiring if you want to tap into the truck at all.
