    Anyone know of a good one that will last? Anzo has one but some of the reviews were so so . Does any other company make one with Amber turn signals. They do give a year warranty. Looking for some input. Thanks

    I was going to add a tailgate light strip but wanted to put it under the tailgate and above the bumper because mounting it on the tailgate would look so tacky!

    Unfortunately there is not enough space between the bumper and tailgate.

    I believe plasma glow has one. Never had much luck with those strips and getting pinched and what not. I did see a pickup once where they mounted it just below the rear window. Didn't look half bad and wouldnt be risking crushing it with the tailgate... just an option with a little extra wiring.

    What year is your truck and where is it mounted?

    In my 2011 there is less than 3/8 inch of space between tailgate and bumper. PICS?

    I have the Rampage led tailgate strip from summit racing, I had a different one that only lasted a monolith and leds were out already, I searched for a replacement and found a lot with bad reviews. This on was only around $50 and had awesome reviews and I must say after 6 months I have no issues yet and it looks awesome it does have turnsignals but they are red, I only wired it up for running/brake and reverse lights though. I dont like the look of half of the bar blinking

    It looks like you guys have a lot more room in that location than I do. I don't think they will be visible there. :(

    Mine has more room because of the after market bumper, thats part of the reason I wanted the light bar

    Ill put a tape measure on it tonight, but everything stock back there. The LED strip is thin.
