    I have always liked the Raptor style amber led lights that some of you have on your Ram trucks grille. I decided to add some to mine too. I never saw a write up so here's my take on it





    1. I bought a piece of delrin plastic (12"x1"x1/4") and cut (4) pieces at 2" long then just rounded the edges some to fit the honeycomb outline of our grille opening and drilled a hole for the Oznium amber flush mount bolt LED's.
    2. Applied JB weld for plastic to the back of the grille outline sections and placed the delrin pieces in their locations.
    3. After drying, I wired the lights together and made a disconnect at the bottom for easy grille removal.
    4. I wired them to my pass side foglight wires, I may end up wiring them to a switch or to the parking lights or DRL's, but this worked for now and allows me to be able to turn them off and on with my fogs in case I didn't want them on all the time.

    They have really good reviews and weren’t too much $$. They also sell on Amazon

    Thanks guys, my goal was to add the lights but do it in a way that wouldn’t be noticeable and not look like an add on (if that makes sense).

    I like your idea of putting them in the mesh grill pockets.
