Cleaned the underside of the taneau cover many times with alcohol. Instalation was very easy. Put a switch on the side of the bed next to the tailgate. Flip the switch and the inside of the bed of the truck lights up just like i wanted. Very impressive. But I live in AZ and the inside of the bed with the taneau cover closed in the summer time is 120 degrees +. One side of the light strip will not stay attached. Too hot for the adhesive. So I have put Super glue on it today. We'll see how that holds.
The lights are overall great, but I wish the kit came with loom. The kit comes in a fancy black box within a custom black bubble envelope. Within the kit you’ll find the lights, alcohol wipes, RTV tube and a few extra things. Installation is fairly simple, with respect to the light strips: they are self adhesive and seem to bond really well. Two alcohol wipes (surface adhesion promotion wipes) are provided. I ended up using towels and isopropyl alcohol first, then a final wipe with the included ones. RTV sealant is included for a post-install sealing. Not sure I understand why, but who am I to question. RTV was applied. I would have preferred the driver side and passenger side be labeled somehow. The wires are different lengths, but you have to find the YouTube install video to know the differences; nothing in the kit outlines which wire set is for what side. After installing the light strips, the wires run over the cab rail and into the passenger compartment through a plastic push grommet you drill out - at least this is how I did it. There’s actually no instructions or hints on how to get the wires into your cab - something I think would really benefit this product. Also, the wires are bare unprotected from the bed into the cab. I made a quick trip to my local auto parts store and bought some wire loom to protect the wires - something I would have gladly paid extra for or at least wish was included in the kit instead of a keychain perhaps? After drilling the tab and pulling wire, the passenger side wiring is almost too short, it has no room for error. The drivers side is about perfect: 6 - 8” extra length. Personally, Id rather the wiring run under the rear and front kick panels and pig-tail into a fuse to 1) preserve the factor wiring harness and 2) provide a much more secure wiring solution. My other issue is the crimp splice connectors. Please spend a few extra dollars and get decent ones. The ones with the kit are cheap, in fact, one did not work. So far so good, but I can’t say I like how these splice in. Overall, they are great. Out of the way, perfect brightness level and seem to be a quality LED strip. I’d recommend, but I would advise to upgrade the wiring and add loom to protect the wiring.
East install work great
