Freightliner Cascadia Fairing LED Accent Light Kit
Freightliner Cascadia Fairing Accent 300 LED Light Kit
The Boogey Lights® Fairing Extension LED Accent Light Kit for the Freightlinger Cascadia (2018+) is designed to light up the area behind the sleeper producing a nice glow effect. This kit is intended to be an add-on to our UNDER-CAB or UNDER-GLOW Accent Light Kits. Available in both single color and multi-color (RGB) versions, these LED light strips mount to the fairing extensions at the back of the truck using the four included right angle plastic moulding strips. There are four LED strips total. Two on each side. The LED strips point inward toward the back of the sleeper which provides a very nice glow effect (see photos). Each LED strip has it's own power lead which for RGB multi-color LED connects back to the LED controller (included with either the Under-Cab or Under-Glow light kits). For single color LEDs the power leads will connect to whichever switching mechanism you're using.
Optional Tail/Turn/Brake Itegration
If you're looking for more visibility from the rear of your truck, our TAIL-TURN-BRAKE light integration fits nicely to the same right angle plastic mounting strips used for the fairing accent lights -- just on the other side facing rear-ward. The optional Tail-Turn-Brake lights consist of four RED led strips, two on each side with 150 LEDs on each side of the truck. Each LED has 3 diodes. When connected to the truck's brake/tail/turn lights using the included heavy duty relays, one - two - or all three diodes in each LED light up whenever the tail lights are on, brake pedal is pressed or turning indicators engaged.NOTE: The truck pictured has ALL of our Cascadia LED light kits installed: Under-Glow, Under-Cab, Grill/Air-Vents and this kit with Tail/Turn/Brake integration.
DOT COMPLIANCE: The AMBER and RED single color LED strips are DOT COMPLIANT. They conform to applicable provisions of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 requirements.More About the Boogey Lights® Bluetooth Smartphone APP
OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED TO COMPLETE YOUR INSTALL. No two installation scenarios are the same. Not everyone shares the same installation quality goals. Some folks are OK with twisting wires together, others want to solder them. Some folks are OK with running wires where they may be seen or unprotected to save money/time, others want a tidy, clean install without any wires showing. Some folks are OK with mounting their LED strips to whatever surface they can find, others want to take the time necessary to build out appropriate mounting surfaces to provide the best lighting effect on their vehicle. The point is it's not possible to provide all the materials necessary for all installation scenarios and quality goals. Our light kits provide the essential components needed for a high-quality, functioning lighting system. Installation of our light kit to your specific vehicle may however require additional items to make it look and fit the way you want. This is particularly the case with electrical wiring and mounting of LED strips. Before proceeding with your installation we suggest you consider THESE OTHER ITEMS.
Installation of this led light kit takes 2 to 4 hours depending on whether or not you're adding in the optional TAIL-TURN-BRAKE light integration.
There are 4 mounting locations. Two LED strips on each side of the truck along the end of the fairing. The first step is to rivet the included right angle black plastic moulding to each of the four fairing extensions on the truck. Our kit includes the 5/16" rivets to do this. We recommend at least 4 rivets in each piece. The accent LED light strips mount to the inside of each of the plastic angles facing inward toward the rear of the cab. If you're also installing the tail/turn/brake light kit, those RED led strips will mount to the same plastic angle pieces but facing toward the rear of the truck. All power leads run down the fairing and from there will connect to the switching device (e.g. LED controller, on/off switch) and/or the brake / tail / turn integration point which we like to do behind the cab area for easy access.
Here are some photos from our Installation Manual.
Note on color selection: Amber (and Red if facing toward the rear) are the only colors that can be used while driving. If you're buying RGB lights, the Bluetooth controller allows you to setup presets for your color selections as well as features which include dimming, strobing, breathing and color blending. In our demo truck we have one button pre-programmed for orange/amber which we also dim by 50% so it isn't so bright. Be aware however you cannot get a true ORANGE or AMBER with RGB leds. WHY NOT?. You can come close by mixing equal parts RED + GREEN (and then increasing the intensity of the red just a little) using your phone and our Bluetooth APP but it is not precise. More details about this can be found here.
