Hey StEaLtH2,
Nice vehicle! Just thinking here...If that universal ILB didn't fit, I would try a dual mpower windshield shroud. We use them often, quick and easy install. You could do one in the middle behind the mirror, or two on each side that will sort of give it that ILB look. 2 dual color mpowers with the shroud would be around $242...if you PM me I can probably work with you on that though.

Also, I've flashed the Halogen Fog's on these... I stay away from any HID/Projection. A HLF will shorten the life of the shutter a bit.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your reply, just to clarify, my DRL‘s are in the traditional highbeam location on the insides and they only have a small incandescent bulb in there I’d like to upgrade them to LED bulbs and wig wag them. It will not be the HIDs. I just need to verify if the DRL’s are ground or positive switched.

Hmm.. good question! My chart shows the headlights are pos-switched. I'd have to dig a little for the DRL's! I'll dig and see what I can find.

Got the 600 “mounted” yesterday...
Have a buddy with a pass side inner edge from 2010 explorer I’ll be test fitting this week. More to come...

Order placed with Fever inc...
Pulled a tail and plenty of room for what I want to do. Unsure on optics, going to try one of each to settle my debate.

Progress, I tried one of each optic for the rear cannons, which are now installed. 120 it is. I’ve got some time cutting and bending and tweaking the inner edge but it’s not in. I’ve also decided against the drl as flashers. Housing issue due to poor engineering Probably will do the fogs while the nose is off. So tempted to jam a Hammer under that bumper cover.
What’s a good “small” light to cast down from open hatch? Not insanely bright

Well thanks everyone for playing along.....

Install is picking up steam. Rear plate, 600, rear haw’s, and right rear window LS12 in and cables routed. Brain mounted and just fished cables forward, I’m as far as second row seat, tomo left rear window and powering up LCS880 hopefully. Pulling the nose and the visor once I line up a helper and some spare time.
Ha!! Like that really exists...
pics and vids will follow as well.

Sooo, today we got the left window and wired in my brain. All rear lights are now run thru the LCS880. All rear paneling is now reinstalled and buttoned up. Test fired the speaker I was given, works

The 600 plays nicely with the siren, L/R/CO all via one button. Had to knockoff due to rain, more to follow...
