You'd be surprised. The plastic piece costs just as much as the metal pieces.

I'm going to cut the bumper and do cubes on my Raptor.

Has anyone installed some LED strips above their running boards and had them activate when the puddle lights come on? Looking to do this mod since I took off my factory mirrors and replaced them with tow mirrors. Curious as which wire to tap into along the door floor trim.

I installed some LED's in the footwell and added puddle lights. Ran a wire from my cargo light because I have a SCab and it's easily accessible. I would do the same thing if I ever install LED's on my running boards, but my LED puddle lights are already really bright

I literally just ran the wire to the actually light. Popped the light housing off on the oustide of the truck to do the splicing, spliced into the power wire, ran that power wire along/under the liner and down the door/seat belt panel and underneath the floor panels. Took me maybe 15 minutes to do that. I did research beforehand which wire I should tap into, but got various results--decided this was the quickest way in this case.

Guess I'll do some research and find out where the wire goes on the interior so I don't have to pop the light out.

Ah, those never show up on the cellphone. But I snapped a pic of the wires you would tap into
