12" cool white: WLF-CW30SMD

Mounting clips, I used 2 per light: WLF-MC

Weatherproof rocker switch: WRRS-SP

Everything else I had at home or was already installed: wiring.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Looks exactly like mine used numerous times out in the pitch black, now all I need is a roll-x cover!

Now that I see your 'commercial quality' photo of your finished work at night, I'm going to do this too... when I get a cap.

In the original post, you mention your dad always had LEER.
Do you see any difference in quality, is LEER worth it?
My dad had a Leer on all his old trucks. His last truck was a 99 super duty with a Leer. He had issues with the paint and the rear gate latch, something else also, but I forget what. He bought a 2011 Super Duty and went with an ARE, so I just followed suit as I liked the look of his.

Thanks. You sort of confirm what I've been observing.

tuxedo black, can you use a tonno with a cap??
Great idea though.
I take a long window shade and strip the hardware off, make it longer and put black cotton fabric on it... puuuuffff.... a security screen.

You mentioned using a roll-x cover with a cap. I didn't know it was possible

How did you attach the metal clips to the cap?

I see you have yours carpeted, did you glue them?

I do not have carpet and was going to use epoxy...

Any ideas?
