    Amazing price for this light bar but my OCD requires the turn signal color to be red.:frusty:

    Did you plug in a bulb or just left it off....if no bulb was plugged in you will get hyper flash. I never got around to testing mine today.

    Completely un plugged. But my buddy told me when I added the LED tail lights it confused the computer. So pretty much doesn’t matter I need the resistors to fix the problem. I’m hoping it will fix the light bar issue as well.

    Exceptional packaging. Fast shipping. Solid product. Very, Very Happy with it. As far as the picture, I have upgraded reverse lights. In person it is blinding bright

    You mind sharing a picture of how you hardwired or if you used a harness. Mine shipped yesterday and the bright reverse light definitely help in my dark driveway. TIA

    I love the light output and look of the bar. It is solid and has 1200 LED's; you will not be disappointed. There are a 100 different ways to wire it. My way is more expensive but can be removed without a trace. I did mine differently than most. I did not want to splice my oem wiring. I purchased these two. So I unhooked the 7pin from behind the bumper. Connected the y adapter. Light bar 4 pin to the 5 pin on the y adapter. I connected the white reverse light to half of the 2 pin that I modified and plugged that into the remaining slot of the 5 pin. I don't know if that makes sense but was very easy. Hardest part was measuring to make sure even/level.

    No problem. I’m sure it will go smooth. I’ll try and post some pics tomorrow. It’s very simple. Even easier than the grab handle.

    I have the Putco Blade, it is very nice. Some people were having issues with LED's going out, I have 3 that are out. I received it as a gift , I called the company because it is still under warranty but the wouldn't replace it without a receipt. I bought this bar for a replacement because my friend has it and loves it.
    Just use my link and referral code if you do. :thumbsup:

    Coming off the bar is a 4 pin and a white single wire. The white wire is the reverse. You can either splice into the harness for the reverse wire. I chose to modify the 2 pin extension cable and connected the white wire to modified trailer pin and plugged that into the empty slot on the 5 pin. Hope that makes sense.

    I received my bar, nice kit! Easy to install.

    Anyone notice the end opposite of the cables? Two screws are exposed to the air. I'm guessing they are hot when the bar is illuminated. I protected them as precaution.
