    Hope you dont run those at night unless you leading the pride parade. Added colored lights do nothing but increase road glare for oncoming traffic

    I've seen where they put an amber marker light on the inside if the bar that car haulers have outside the tires. I think that's how they make the rim glow.

    Tropsnart is correct. I put 3 bullet style on the step bar facing the rim. My preference is red color. I go thru scales at night without a problem. Looks really good after a truck wash.

    Does the step bar slide out ok with the bullet lights in place? Snap a picture of the backside of the bar if you get a chance.

    Two things you will have to do. Cut curve out a small section where the lights will slide thru when removing the slide bar. Attached a female 2 make connection to the electrical wire. See attached photos
