Light up the Night
Whether a truck bed light kit is a high priority, or a fixture on your wishlist, the options may seem never-ending. If you want to tailgate in style, decorative options are limitless. But LED lights on a truck bed can also be incredibly functional as part of your overloading set up or on your tonneau cover.
LED Lights on Truck Bed
Practically speaking, custom LED lights can be installed in your truck bed to drive better nighttime visibility. These are an obvious choice over traditional lights which easily overheat and bun out quickly. But more to the point, tonneau lighting can supplement the cargo lights in the bed, flooding it with light.
Plus, it can provide added security, as some LED truck bed lights are even motion activated. Whether you want to check on your cargo, or simply scare off passerby or raccoons, a DIY kit may be the way to go.
The Renegade Cover has an incorporated L-Track so you can attach many accessories right onto the cover as well.
LED Lights on Overland Rig
An after-market truck bed lighting system is even more crucial if you decide to get into overloading. The adventures you’ll have during the day lose their charm if you can’t relive them each night over dinner. While a campfire sets a certain mood, the increasing fire restrictions due to drought can be a real bummer.
Also, if you get up to use the bathroom or because you hear a noise, being able to light up your campsite is going to be crucial. No more stumbling around in the dark? Sold. It just may be that adding LED lights to your overland rig will make the whole experience that much more enjoyable.
Considerations for LED Lights on Truck Bed
DIY truck bed cargo lights may seem like a simple accessory, but there are actually a lot of considerations. Do they come with a warranty? How easy will they be to install? What will the power draw be on the truck battery (and do you know how to hardwire them)? What’s their brightness and is there a halo effect?
You might also consider color options, whether or not they have a remote, features (strobe, blinking, chasing), and sound (some synchronize with music!). Beyond their durability and the price you’re willing to pay, it’s also important to be aware of any restrictions which may vary from state to state. For example, you don’t want to get confused with the flashing lights of emergency vehicles.
