Ok, so the sun has set and I have some output lights. It's good and not so good.
Here's the not so good. The light in the foreground completely washes out the backup cam.
Here's what I mean.
Stock reverse lights and brake lights on:
Same, except with the Rigid's turned on:
So with the Rigid's on the cam shows foreground light as intense and you lose the detail on things further out. Not a big deal really as the switch is selectable. I just didn't expect this.
Now, for the good.
Driver window down...mind you this is NOT through the tint. These are pictures as you te driver would see them. These pics are of the driver's side mirror.
Stock reverse lights only:
Stock lights and brake lights:
Rigids and brake lights:
I didn't take pics of me standing behind the truck, etc, because honestly that does me no good as the need I have is from the driver's seat. I'm really liking how this kit throws diffused light down and out. I don't really need to see what's 100' behind me...how is that really useful? For me, it's not. My main concern was illuminating what was directly behind and to the sides and this kit nailed that objective.
What is also cool is that this wiring harness will plug directly into Duallys. So if I get the itch to swap then all I'll have to do is buy a pair, bolt 'em up, and plug 'em in.
For the price I paid for this kit I'm pretty pleased.
