Default Running board LEDs?

I posted this in one of the other forums on here but just realized it should be here since it is a super duty truck..

Anyone install LEDs marker lights on their "pinch weld" of their truck?
I'm liking what I see in the pics. I wish these were setup for blinkers as well, but it looks like he has them set up strictly for running lights.

If I were to do this I would probably install about four more of these lights on each side and set them up to where every other light is a running light as well as every other light being a blinker.
Measure in my truck I would need to put 13 of these lights on each side. Each light is 3 inches in length and I would have a 3 inch gap between each light.

Do you think this will look too busy?

I think it looks a little like, "l'm a semi truck!". But I don't think it looks bad. It's cheap and pretty easy to do as well. I think big silly vertical stacks through the bed really look a lot worse.

If it were me, I would do it like the black super crew pictured. I would want them as thin as possible of a light fixture and definitely even spacing between them.

Nice! I like how you put them on the running boards. You have a link to the lights?

Do you happen to have a link or name of the led light strips you used for your trucks running boards? Hard to find led strips that have the diodes spaced right next to each other.
