Man those are alot brighter than I thought they would be. After running the strip down both sides did you have left over? How is the quality? Gonna be hard to get better lighting cheaper than that! Another mod to add!

I got my strips from a buddy that sells emergency vehicle lighting. He had a couple extra laying around so all it cost me was $9 for a toggle and some heatshrink and about 3 hrs to get everything right. Those strips are both 48 inches long...only would've cost me about $20 for them anyways.

I bought mine from amazon. It was a 16 foot roll of the waterproof led roll with 600 LEDs. Those cost like 21 and that's with the shipping.(16 something for lights) I ran it down both sides and across the front side of the bed and had like a foot left over...

I checked those out when you first posted it. Added them to the wish list. Came out pretty sweet for a very economical price.

Forgot to ask-How did you mount your lights?

I just used a lot of Velcro about every 8-10 inches to make sure it stayed... The sticky stuff on the back isn't too sticky...

I wired the lights thru my toolbox and put the switch in the groove so I wouldnt hit it with anything.
