Ok, posting this as more of a "What did I get myself into". 60" LED tailgate bar, same thing I've installed in at least 6 vehicles. Since this bar has to be hard wired to the system I knew it would take a little longer. Problem is my 2011 shares bulbs with turn signals and brakes like many others do. The Firestorm bar has a scanning pattern and has some funky internal wiring. Ended up having to use the front turn signals to activate this feature and I now need to tap into my 3'rd brake light to light up that part of the tailgate bar. So far everything works great except the brake. Don't have the patience to route into that 3'rd brake wire. Anyways, just wanted to vent a little. Tomorrow I will have no choice.

May not be a quick install, but the results were awesome. LOVE this two piece unit...bright and very cool scanning amber turn signals. I'll try to post a video soon. Need to make one anyway for the new exhaust, may incorporate both into one vid.

Light bar with new 14" Magnaflow clip. Very windy outside now so had to back the end into the garage for this one.

A few closeup pictures. The bar is sort of wide and rests very nicely on the lip at just the right height.

One more. Mounted the right side with industrial Velcro so I can still access the spare tire crank hole if needed.
