Never heard of them.. I like how he bashes china/ ebay light bars at 1:40 mark.. Yet he makes no mention on where his "custom led bar" is from, only that they are CREE LEDs? I guarantee you it's not American for $299. Also, now much light from that 42" bar are you loosing by mounting it behind the grill? That's a dbl stacked bar, which means it's taller.. IMHO, a single stacked bar is better for behind the grill mounting.
All his stuff seems like ebay components.

Im sorry I have to say something, this guy is the biggest hack job.


I hate being this person, a "troller" or someone to take time speaking negatively about someone who seems to be trying to start a small business. But F150LEDs.com is a joke. There is a good reason that his comments are disabled on youtube, basically doing electrical work how I did when I was 16 and to this day regret it. I just spent some time watching his install videos looking for LED ideas for my 2013. His kits consist of off the shelf parts you can get at a local autozone, pep boys. Hell, his mirror turn signal kit literally comes with a bent coat hanger to run the wires.


The cup holder and interior "accent" lighting kit comes with a clear RTV silicon tube, alcohol wipes and a remote LED module with a sticker over the top that he jams 10 wires into 2 terminals. Nothing is soldered or has pre-made terminals but comes with the shi! job plastic splices.


The cup holder kit comes with a get-anywhere LED rope light that is RTV clear silicone JAMMED in the crack between the lower and upper recessed mating surface of the cup holder in the console. The silicon RTV is all gooped up and even on the how-to video you can see the silicon gooped over the edge, uneven and smeared over the inside of the cup holders. The robe light is too long of coarse so the rest just gets to dangle in your console.


God. Watching him run the power wire to the running light turn signal LEDs made me cringe. The power wire, run through the door, down TO the rubber conduit between your door and body in the jam, he gets the wire to the rubber loom, and drills a hole through it to loom to run the wire along the OUTSIDE rather than run it through the wire loom as it was intended. Now you get to see a bare wire looping in your door jam when opened.


Hell, when the wire was ran from the driver mirror he ran it ACROSS (not alongside) the under side of the rubber weather stripping over a nice sharp welded body seam lol, so open and close your door enough times and that edge will cut the wires sheath and arc.


I was intrigued enough to watch the videos only in horror to watch him hack the hell out of a nice, what appears to be platinum F150.


This is an above average do-it-yourselfer that decided to make a business packing up "stuff" an telling you how to hack up your electrical in your truck. I'd be surprised to see that this is even a legitimate company with a valid tax ID...rather some guy with a web site.


Run away.

After seeing what MDULA posted, I am returning most of my order! I hope they give refunds, I didn't bother to research the company prior to placing my order.. shame on me!
I got caught up trying to help out a fellow F150 owner.

He has that bar labeled " epistar cree". That's 2 different leds. But it's not a cree bar, it's an epistar bar. If anyone wanted to know..

Maybe it was just a sloppy install he did and not really a reflection of the products. I'd like to read reviews from the consumer who actually bought and used their product.

I'm just looking for options in buying a off-road bar and this business popped up. I can't and refuse to spend a ton of money on a other named bar for something that I will only use a few times a month when driving those long dark back roads.

I have a few of their exterior led's coming my way, I'll update this thread when I install them, I normally buy from V-LED's but I saw F150LEDS.COM was a dedicated F150 supporter so I wanted to give him my business as a fellow F150 owner.

I think the post I posted earlier was a bit harsh since I had no personal experience with their products. For that I apologize. But, these are purely my own opinion based on watching the how-to's on installing the interior light accent kit and I just would never use splices and clear RTV in my interior.


Feel free to watch and make your own judgement


Accent lighting


Cup Holder light


Mirror running lights and blinker


This, from what I can tell is the controller he's using for his interior accent kit.

EDIT: So they just emailed saying that a few of the "CREE" products they need for my order were delayed by the weather so it should all ship within the next 48 hours.
