    I bought a 48” under tailgate led light strip as it fits the window width. Then I cut the rubber housing off the strip to make it fit into the window seam.

    I cut all the extra buytal out of the window seam to make room for the light strips and silicone.

    Taping the glass and body off helped keep a clean line.

    I laid the window seam half full of silicone, then set the light strip in. Once it was set, I filled the remainder of the seam with more silicone. To ensure perfect silicone placement I used a spray bottle of dish soap water for shaping lube. Just spray the soap onto the silicone and the finger of choice, then glide your finger as needed.

    Lastly, I wired the light into the existing circuit. This light is 5 function so has running(70%), brake, signal’s and reverse.

    I’m pretty happy with the outcome and will need to get some pictures once the truck is outside again.

    That looks good! I want to do something similar with the bed rack I have in mind, attaching something like this to the back of the rack.

    How did you wire it? Straight to the trailer wiring in/outlet?

    The night shots look killer. Some modern integration without the bulk. I like it.

    Yeah you bet, I ran the wires down between cab and box, then down the frame and into the trailer wiring.

    Hindsight, next time I would spray paint the wiring flat black, this way the you wouldn’t see the one white wire beside the glass. :annoyed:
