VNL GEN 2 / GEN 3 Grill LED Light Kit
The Boogey Lights® VNL Grill LED light kit is designed to light up the grill area producing a nice glow effect coming from inside the hood. Available in both single color and multi-color (RGB) versions these LED light strips mount to the inside of the hood facing inward (see photo for placement). The kit includes one 10' power lead. When paired with our Volvo VNL Under-Cab Accent Light Kit and our VNL Hood Air Intake Vent light kit, this Grill LED Light kit creates a nice lighting effect for the front of the tractor. If purchasing the RGB multi-color version, the power lead will need to connect to a Boogey Lights® controller which is sold-separately. Will fit Volvo VNL Gen 2 (2004-2018) and Gen 3 (2019+) grill.
NOTE: The photo of the red and blue grill light kit has an additional Heavy Duty LED light strip mounted on the bottom of the bumper shining straight down to the ground providing additional ground effects glow.
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.
Installation Info, Where To Mount
Total installation time is about one hour. In most cases you can complete the installation with only opening the hood (see photo). You'll need to determine how you're going to power the LEDs. In most installations the grill LED light kit is being added to an existing Boogey Lights LED kit (e.g. under-cab, air intake) so you can simply tap into that 12vdc circuit. Care must be taken to make sure you aren't however over-loading the circuit. The grill light kit contains 297 LEDs which on full power (white) will draw about 3amps. Before mounting the led strips, the surface must first be cleaned with alcohol and the prepped with the include 3M® promoter. Simply remove the red protective covering on the back of each LED strip and press firmly against the inside of the hood. Repeat the process for each strip around the grill opening. The power lead will need to be routed back to your power source and wire tied along the way.
Note on color selection: Amber (and Red if facing toward the rear) are the only colors that can be used while driving. If purchasing the RGB multi-color version, you can adjust the color displayed using the remote or your Bluetooth phone. We've found that white is very helpful when parked for working around the truck.
