PeterBilt 379/389 Grill LED Light Kit

Light up your Pete's Grill with our 165 LED Light Kit!

Light up your grill with our super-bright LED light kit built for the 379 or 389 grill. Offered in multi-color RGB, RGBA, Dual Color (your choice of 7 primary colors + amber) and single color (8 choices) configurations. This kit can also be combined with our BREATHER LIGHT KIT and / or our UNDER-GLOW LIGHT KITs for the 379/389 too. 12vdc.

The 'purple' looking color in the primary photo of this product is not a true purple. It's MAGENTA which is a hot-purple. True purple LEDs are really Ultra-Violet and not very bright.

Unlike most every other light kit out there, these light kits are ACCENT LIGHT KITS. When mounted properly, you'll never see the LED lights themselves. You'll only see the glow from the LEDs. If you're interested in learning more about WHY Boogey Lights are different than any other LED lighting system on the market, click here: WHY BOOGEY LIGHTS . We do a deep dive into the ten differences between Boogey Lights® and all the others.


  • Stand Alone: Single Color. This is the default configuration. Just the LED light kit for the grill light. No switching or battery connection wiring included. Assumes you are going to be wiring the lights into an existing 12vdc circuit or switch. Be sure to allocate additional amperage draw which depending upon the color, can be as much as .75 amps per 72 LEDs.
  • Stand Alone: Single Color w/RF Wireless ON/OFF + battery connection wiring. Includes the LED light kit for the grill (single color) PLUS a wireless on/off RF remote control along with battery connection wiring.
  • Dual Color - No switching or battery connection wiring included. Assumes you are going to be wiring the lights into an existing 12vdc circuit with your own switches. Be sure to allocate additional amperage draw which depending upon the color, can be as much as 3.3 amps per 300 LEDs. In all cases we strongly suggest using a heavy duty 30 or 40 AMP automotive relay when wiring Boogey Lights to your existing system.
  • Dual Color with two On/Off switches, two relays and battery connection wiring with two 30amp fuse holders.
  • Stand Alone: Multi-Color / RGB w/Wireless LED Controller + battery connection wiring. Includes the RGB multi-color LED light kit for the grill PLUS a wireless RF/Bluetooth combo LED controller along with battery connection wiring. NOTE: You have two remote control options here: Key Fob or M7 style remote. The M7 style remote is the most popular because of it's nine large, easy-to-use and see buttons. Each button has one function so no sharing of functions. It measures 3.5" x 1.5" x .25". The KEY FOB style remote is smaller and is key chain ready. It has four smaller buttons each of which have more than one function. The KEY FOB remotes have a sliding cover to protect the keys from damage and are easy to put in your pocket without accidentally pressing any buttons. It measures 1.75" x 1" x .5". See photos.
  • Integrate with existing Boogey Lights Under-Glow or Breather LED Light Kits (Single Color or Multi-Color). Includes either the Single Color OR RGB multi-color LED light kit for the grill plus wiring to connect to an existing Boogey Lights Under-Glow or Breather LED kit that already has switching and/or LED controller in place.


Single colors are going to be brighter than RGB (multi-color) LEDs. The reason is that in an RGB LED there are three diodes: red, green and blue. The LED controller mixes those three colors to create other colors. For example, equal amounts of red + green + blue = white. In a single color LED, all three diodes are the same color. So in a single color white LED, there are three white LEDs which is much brighter than an RGB led mixed to show white. If you're for the absolute brightest color for your truck, go with single color. If however you want to be able to change the colors from time to time, go with RGB. Just be aware that the RGB version of isn't as bright as the single color version.

RGB / Multi-Color: For RGB led lighting an LED Controller is needed to operate the lights. The controller is what operates the lights and mixes the colors. In addition to providing a wireless on/off capability, the LED controllers offered allow you to control your lights with your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smart phone and our free smart phone APP (Android and IOS) OR the included RF wireless remote. With the included RF remote you can change between 7 colors and functions of on/off, blending, strobing, breathing, flashing, fading and dimming. You can also use your Bluetooth enabled smart phone to create that custom look with over 16 million different color combinations plus three pre-sets.

NOTE: If purchasing RGB, be aware that an RGB LED cannot create the color orange. It can come close but not exact. Why? As mentioned previously, RGB leds have three color DIODES: RED, GREEN and BLUE. It's the mixing of these three colors together that create other colors. The color ORANGE is created by mixing RED + YELLOW. The color YELLOW is created by mixing RED + GREEN. With an RGB LED, there is only one RED diode so it can only be used once. To get something that looks more like orange to the human eye using RGB LEDs you need to mix equal amounts of RED + GREEN (actually just a bit less green since the human eye is more sensitive to green wavelengths). This will give you the color YELLOW. Then, increase the intensity of the RED just a little (or, pull back the green). This will essentially add a little red to the yellow to effectively mix a color that has an orange tint which is closer to AMBER. It's not perfect but it's as close as you can get to the color orange using RGB led lights.

If you really like orange but want the flexibility that RGB provides, we suggest using RGBA. RGBA will create a nice rich orange color by mixing equal parts RED and AMBER.


RGBA is a new type of 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.


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.


To achieve the full adhesive strength of the 3M® tape affixed to the back of each strip 3M® Adhesion Promoter (aka Primer) must be applied to the mounting surface first. This is an important step to ensure a secure bond. The 3M® Adhesion Promoter creates a chemical bond between the tape and the mounting surface such that the LED strip will stay stuck (at least until you decide you want to remove it). Using any other solvent such as rubbing alcohol or acetone is not the same thing as using 3M® Adhesion Promoter. While these solvents will help clean the surface, they do not prime the surface. There is a difference. 3M® Adhesion Promoter is included with this kit although you may elect to purchase more if you'd like.


True purple LED's are actually ultra-violet (UV).  They produce a soft, pleasant purple glow particularly when used on or near shiney reflective surfaces (e.g. chrome motorcycle engines).  The color however is not a real bright effect like you'll get with any of the other LED single colors.  If you want a subtle, purple glow that looks great, then the UV/LED's may well be for you.  If however you want the brightest lights possible, you will not be happy with UV/Purple. We do not recommend UV Purple for Semi-Truck applications for this very reason. The alternative to UV/Purple is MAGENTA (some call it a 'hot purple') which looks similar but has a brighter, pinkish tint. Magenta is available by mixing 100% RED + 100% BLUE which is what our single color Magenta is. You can also mix magenta using our RGB LEDs and an LED controller. Scroll through the photo carousel of this product to see an example of how the MAGENTA looks on a truck when installed.  You can also click on the SPECIFICATIONS tab of this product page and scroll down to see photos of all color options.  

Will Boogey Lights® Work with Other Brands?

The short answer is probably not. All Boogey Lights® RGB LED strips are COMMON CATHODE LEDS. They share a common ground and will only work with positively switched controllers. Most LED strips on the market today are COMMON ANODE because the controller technology used to power them is less expensive to manufacture. However they're not nearly as bright and are an overall inferior design when compared with COMMON CATHODE LEDs. For more information, click the button below.

Installation takes about an hour depending on whether or not you're integrating with another light kit. Here are the basic steps.

  1. You don't have to remove the grill IF you have a means by which to support the hood when it's open such that you can put your body weight on it. It's also wise to put a piece of plywood across the inside of the grll before putting your body weight on it (see photo). This helps distribute the weight. This will allow you to climb inside (more or less) the front of the hood to install the LED light strip from the inside. Not everyone is going to be able to do this -- particularly for those who might be a little on the heavy side. In that case you're going to have to remove the grill so you can gain access to the inside of the grill from the front of the truck.
  2. Clean the surface where the LED strip will be mounted with alcohol and then prep with 3M Adhesion Primer. It's important to make sure this area is clean and free of dirt, oil or grease before proceeding.
  3. Decide which side of the truck the power lead will route. In our installation we routed it out on the passenger's side because our other light kit power leads (Breather + Under-Glow kits) were on the passenger's side of the truck. In this particular installation we mounted the LED controller in the passenger's side storage box and thus why our connections are on the passenger's side. It could also go on the driver's side. Totally up to you.
  4. Once you have the power lead cable in the engine compartment, you can continue with wiring the LEDs to power and/or a switch.

    NOTE: You'll notice a shadow on both the left and right side of the grill (see marked up photo below). The reason is some trucks have rubber flashing attached to the top, left and right sides of the radiator. That flashing is designed to funnel air coming in from the front of the grill into the radiator. In newer trucks, the rubber flashing is ridged; it generally won't be an issue. In older trucks however the rubber is quite worn and flimsy so it sags which is what causes the shadow. In our installation the top rubber flashing was so bad it was torn; hanging down and blocking air so we removed it. If you want maximum illumination and that rubber flashing is worn to the point at which it's creating the shadow you have a couple of options. First is to simply remove it - or - at least a portion of it. Whether or not doing so will impact air direction/flow to the radiator we don't know but we doubt it's that significant. Second, reinforce the rubber flashing with something rigid (or tie it back) so the rubber doesn't bend or sag. In our case we left the rubber flashing as it was and let the customer decide later what he wanted to do - and thus why you see the shadow on the left and right sides of the grill photos. .
