Heavy Duty Truck LED Light Kit | Fits Most ANY Heavy Duty Commercial Truck
Boogey Lights® super bright Heavy Duty LED light strips are ideal for working truck applications including semi-trucks. This UNDER-GLOW light kit is not specific to any one truck brand, make or model. It's a good starting point if you want to build out an under-glow light kit for any heavy duty truck. It's the kit we recommend for customers who have a truck we don't already have a pre-configured light kit built. This kit can be easily expanded too.
Offered in multi-color RGB, RGBA, Dual Color (your choice of 7 primary colors + amber) and single color (8 choices) configurations. With our GEN2 RGBx multi-color controller, you can set the color of your choice or pre-program a sequence of colors. We offer complete customization capabilities too for those unique situations.
Boogey Lights® HEAVY DUTY LED STRIPS used in this kit are designed to be used in tough, outdoor and commercial applications where the lighting strip might be subject to direct impact, heavy road use or submersed in water. The flexible PVC provides an extra, dual layer of protection above and beyond our already tough LED light strips. Ideal for off-road machines, ATVs, side-by-sides, tool box compartments, vehicle storage bins, truck beds and heavy duty truck commercial applications.
NOTE: The customer's truck featured on this page has our single color GREEN Heavy Duty LED strips in the following configuration:
6 - 75 LED strips
8 - 15 LED strips
2 - 60 LED strips
1 - 30 LED strip
RGB OR RGBA MULTI-COLOR OPTION
The multi-color RGB LED version provides over 16 million color combinations that you control and includes its own on/off wireless switch. The multi-color RGB and RGBA kits include our GEN2 Heavy Duty combo Bluetooth + RF controller so you can control the lights with your Bluetooth enabled smartphone or the included wireless RF G2 M7 remote control. The CONTROLLERS navigation tab of the product page has more details on these controllers. With any of the Boogey Lights® BLUETOOTH controllers you can control your lights with your Bluetooth enabled Android or IOS smartphone. These high-tech controllers are capable of displaying 16 million different color combinations. In addition, lighting effects on the Smartphone controller are significantly more controllable in terms of speed and intensity. Each color and lighting effect is controlled by "sliders" or a color square on your smartphone screen so you can adjust the speed and intensity to get the lighting exactly the way you want it. Our controllers operate on 12vdc. Also, all of our Bluetooth Combo controllers include an RF remote control allowing for quick on/off of the controller. You can operate this controller with the included RF wireless remote OR you can use your Bluetooth enabled smartphone and our free smartphone APP (Android and IOS). Boogey Lights® RF Controllers will display seven colors (steady on + four lighting effects): RED, GREEN, BLUE, WHITE, LIGHT BLUE, BOOGEY LIGHTS GREEN (LIME GREEN/YELLOW), HOT PINK/PURPLE. The lighting effects options for our RF Controller include: DIMMING, BLENDING, BREATHING, STROBING. In the Blending, Breathing and Strobing modes these features can be set to remain on a single color or to cycle through each of the 7 colors. You can also adjust the speed at which this happens. The RF remote control offers SEVEN levels lighting effects (e.g. 7 levels of dimming). For the DUAL ZONE Heavy Duty LED controller, these functions work independently per zone OR both zones together.
The Quick Switch feature comes standard on our HEAVY DUTY SINGLE ZONE and HD DUAL ZONE LED Controllers (all RGBxx controllers). Whatever color LED you have connected to the WHITE output wire on the controller is the color that will display when the Quick Switch is triggered with 12vdc +. The most common use for this configuration is with commercial vehicles who want to be able to instantly turn off whatever color they're running and turn on a DOT compliant AMBER which is on our RGBA LED strips. For these installations, the yellow trigger wire is connected to a toggle switch or other wireless switch that activates the AMBER leds. When the Quick Switch trigger wire is not energized, the LED controller operates the RGBxx diodes normally. NOTE: This Quick Switch feature eliminates the need to use a relay for RGBA LEDs.
SINGLE ZONE OR DUAL ZONE
If ordering RGB or RGBA, you have your choice of a SINGLE ZONE or DUAL ZONE GEN2 Heavy Duty LED Controller. As the name suggests, a SINGLE ZONE controller has one lighting zone. All LEDs wired to that zone display the same color and features. For DUAL ZONE, there are two distinct light zones. All LEDs wired to Zone 1 operate the same. All LEDs wired to Zone 2 operate the same. Each zone can be used independently or together.
PRE-BUILT LED CONTROL CENTER (OPTIONAL)
We offer the option of pre-building the LED Control Center with your order. These LED Control Centers make for a professional looking installation. Also makes the installation a little easier for DIYers since the controller wiring is neatly organized and easily identifiable. It's also a huge time saver. Can easily save two hours (or more) when doing a typical installation.
The pre-built Control Center has the LED Controller and power connections mounted to a PVC board. The power connections make it simple to connect your battery power as well as the LED strip power leads via a terminal blocks mounted to the board. Simply strip the end of the battery lead cable and LED strip power leads, push them into the terminal block and tighten the screw. This design also makes trouble shooting easier. The board has four 2" stand offs with plexi-glass mounted on top which keeps the components protected. You can read more about this option on the LED CONTROL CENTER product page. We include some photos below. The LED Control Center option is only available when an LED Controller and/or relays are ordered.
WHAT IS RGB + AMBER (RGBA)?
RGBA is a new LED strip format Boogey Lights® developed. It is available in both our Low Profile and Heavy Duty LED strip formats. The RGBA led strip includes our core RGB tri-chip technology using a 5050 RGB LED with the addition of a fourth 2835 diode that is AMBER. Designed primarily for motor vehicle applications, that fourth AMBER diode can be wired to a separate switch on the dash (or tied into a relay to work with existing running lights) that allows you to quickly and easily turn on just the AMBER leds. Then, for those who want the flexibility to be able to display up to 16 million color combinations using the RGB tri-chip, they can do that too. RGB + A provides the best of both worlds. Single color amber plus RGB tri-chip multi-color. The product photo carousel of this product page includes a close-up view of the LED strip design and wiring diagram. Note that due to the addition of that fourth diode, the RGBA strips are a little wider than our standard tri-chip RGB and single color LED strips. Also, the power lead wires use five conductor vs four. For additional information including product specs, click the SPECS navigation tab on this product page.
WHAT IS DUAL COLOR?
The Dual Color LED configuration uses our RGBA LED strip but instead of pairing that LED strip with an RGB LED controller (to mix up to 16 million different color combinations), we hard wire a combination of one, two or all three of the RGB diodes (red, green or blue) along with the AMBER diode to two on/off switches. One switch operates the primary color diode(s). The other switch operates the amber diode. There are a total of seven Dual Color configuration options: RED+AMBER, GREEN+AMBER, BLUE+AMBER, MAGENTA+AMBER, YELLOW+AMBER, CYAN+AMBER, WHITE+AMBER. With a Dual Color configuration you don't need an LED Controller. Instead, you only need two switches (and relays); one to control each color. The primary color is chosen from the available dual color drop down list. The secondary color is always amber. Note: The Dual Color options includes one ON-OFF-ON 3 way toggle switch and two, 30 amp relays.
SINGLE COLOR CONFIGURATION
Single color LEDs do not require an LED controller to operate. They do however require a switch of some kind (not included) somewhere in the circuit to turn them off/on. There are a number of ways to do this but regardless of how you decide to switch your single color LEDs, you need to be mindful of the amperage you're adding to your system. If you're considering adding these LEDs to an existing circuit (e.g. with your marker or running lights) we strongly suggest using a relay vs simply tapping into the existing circuit. This is especially important on newer trucks where the LCM will likely throw an error when you add more LEDs to the system due to the increased amperage draw. If you're looking for some single color switch options - including relays - here are several:
- Heavy Duty 30A Relay
- Wireless On/Off Remote Control
- On/Off Toggle Switch
- On/Off/On 3 Position Toggle Switch
- Simple Push-Button Switch
- Wireless On/Off/Dimming/Strobbing Remote
Note: Any auto parts store (or big box store) will offer a wide variety of 12vdc switches and relays. And, many trucks already have unused switches available on the dash. We offer the above as a convenience only.
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.
OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED
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.
NOTE ON COLOR SELECTION
In most cases AMBER is the only color that can be used when driving on public highways in the United States. This is one reason why our Multi-Color RGB kit is popular. It allows you to change the colors to fit the situation. For example, we've found white to be very helpful when parked for working around the truck at night. Also, the controller in our Multi-Color RGB kit allows you to setup presets for your color selections as well as features which include dimming, strobing, breathing and color blending. As an example, for maximum visibility in emergency situations such as when parked on the side the road, with the Multi-Color RGB option you can program the lights to flash red. Or, rotate through a sequence of red and amber.
For those who want the option to run RGB plus AMBER, select our RGBA led strip. In this configuration, you can wire the AMBER led chip to a simiple on/off switch (not included) while using the included RF + Bluetooth wireless LED controller to mix up to 16 million color combinations and presets.
3M ADHESION PRIMER INCLUDED
Each kit includes 3M®primer. It's important the surface be prepared properly to make sure the LED strips stay stuck.
Why buy a KIT vs Individual Components? Our LED Light Kits are less expensive to purchase than if you were to purchase the components individually.
