Just bought my ram a few weeks ago and have done some mods and a lot of reading.... Which bars do you have or want? Looking at putco switchblade or redline triple... need advice...

Just be sure to silicone the ends of the lightbar, so it will last longer. Problem with lightbars, the ends allow moisture and ******, no more lights.

How it looks, when brakes are applied:

I believe mine is a recon. The reverse option really did not help as far as lighting. But it looks cool.

I just picked up an Opt7, haven't installed it yet but I think RCFiddyOne's picture is a pretty good endorsement.

modify or remove the surround , heat shrink the let down bar and good to go with careful placement of the light bar


BTW get the 5 pin t connector https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007EA6WQ...UTF8&colid=ILNHTIBUG6TF&coliid=I1SSCG5SIDE8JI use the 5 as the reverse wire tap
One more vote for the 5 pin adapter for reverse. I was also able to install my OPT7 bar just above the spare tire access and it clears the tailgate fine when opening....the newer thicker/taller Opt7 bar won't clear the tailgate if it's installed this high though.

The 5 pin is a good splice point for other things as well. Used it to wire up some LED bed light strips.

OPT7's newer one is what I have. 60" with brake, sequential turns and reverse. All one continuous LED strip not LED dots across the lights
