    Only on the 2020 and newer because of the shark fin.

    It affects 2018+. The keyless entry antenna is located by the cargo light inside the cab, not in the shark fin.

    Ended up ordering vleds. Came out a few bucks cheaper than diode dynamics after promo code and they have a bit higher output at 850 lum compared to 720.

    Next is reverse bulbs.

    Holy cow the Vleds are bright! May not need high end reverse bulbs after all if these throw this much light.

    I don't have VLEDs but I can skin and quarter a deer with the ones I have. They also work well on tailgaters at night. You will still want to upgrade your reverse lights. I have LEDs in the stock location but they cast light more to the side. I also added 4" pods in the bumper.

    I'll take some pics tonight. Nearest the cab may be a little dark due to my bed cover but thats fine. Main interest was throwing more light towards the tailgate when loading and unloading kayaks in the dark.

    I pulled the trigger on the VLEDs. Thought I would post a pic for reference. My cover is rolled up at the front making a little shadow towards the cab. I made sure to put a bunch of crap in the bed for reference :(.

    Very happy with the result.
