Volvo VNL Boogey Lights® LED Accent Light Kits

You select which LED light kits you want for your VOLVO VNL truck!

Light up your VOLVO VNL semi truck with a Boogey Lights® LED light Kit. These super bright LED accent light kits are built tough. They're designed specifically for outdoor use on vehicles that move, vibrate, flex and contract. They're available for both Generation 2 (2004-2018) and Generation 3 (2019+) VNL body styles. Offered in multi-color RGB, RGBA, Dual Color (your choice of 7 primary colors + amber) and single color (8 choices) configurations. To order, select YES or NO for each of the possible Light Kits offered for your truck. You can order just one light kit or all. Pricing and kit components will automatically adjust based on your selection.

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.

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.

SINGLE COLOR VS RGB (MULTI-COLOR)

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 looking 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. The single color version is available in your choice of one of seven super-bright colors: Amber, Orange, Red, Green, Blue, White or Pink.

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 (white, red, blue, green, light blue, lime green, pink) 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 along with color rotation programming with either 2 or 3 color sets. There is significantly more detail on the BLUETOOTH APP navigation tab on this product page. Since our Dual Color products use the RGB chip on the RGBA led strip, it is considered a multi-color product even though you don't need an LED controller to operate.

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.

WHAT IS RGB + AMBER (RGBA)?

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 our GEN2 LED Controller or 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.

TWO LED STRIP FORMATS

Boogey Lights® is the only manufacturer that produces two types of LED light strips - one for light duty applications where the LED strip is mostly protected from a direct strike and one for heavy duty applications where the LED strip will be mounted in locations where a direct strike is possible. Both styles use the same custom made, 2 oz copper PCB, clear poly-urethane UV resistant coating and super-bright tri-chip 5050 LED components with more LEDs per foot than any other product on the market. The difference is the HEAVY DUTY LED strips are encased in an industrial grade black flexible PVC which make them ideal for tough outdoor and commercial applications where the light strip might be subjected to direct impact or corosive road chemicals. The flexible PVC used on the Heavy Duty LED strips provides an extra, dual layer of protection above and beyond our already tough low profile led strips. For our CASCADIA Light Kits we use a mix of both our LOW PROFILE and HEAVY DUTY LED light strips depending on the mounting location as follows:

  • Heavy Duty LED Strips are used on our Under-Glow, Rear Fairing Accent and Tail-Turn-Brake light kits.
  • Low Profile LED Strips are used on our Under-Cab, Grill and Air-Vent light kits.

SIDE STEP LED LIGHT KIT

We offer the option of lighting up the side steps built into the Volvo fairing on both sides of the truck. The LED strip itself is mounted inside the step under the step cover shinning upward. See photos below. The kit includes Quick-Disconnect cables too so that when the side skirts are removed, the LED power lead cables can be safely disonnected. If you want to add the Side Step lights, there are three options:

  • Just the front steps
  • Just the rear steps
  • Both the front and rear steps

TAIL-TURN-BRAKE LIGHT KIT

When purchasing the Tail-Turn-Brake (TTB) light kit you have two options for the Color Configuration (referred to as the TTB COLOR CONFIG on this product page). The first option is THREE diodes all of which are RED (tail, turn and brake lights are all RED; one diode for each). This is the default setting if you purchase the Tail-Turn-Brake light kit. The second option is FOUR diodes. Three of which are RED and the fourth is AMBER. That fourth amber diode can be used for the turn signal light. The first red diode is used for running lights and the remaining two red diodes are used for the brake lights. If you're not purchasing the Tail Turn Brake light kit, leave the default setting of 'Not Applicable'. Only if you select YES for the Tail-Turn-Brake (TTB) light kit do you need to make this selection. If selecting the Tail-Turn-Brake light kit and you don't make a color config selection, we'll default to RED only.

TTB Optional Side Skirt Lower LED Strip: If your truck has side skirts, you can add an optional Heavy Duty LED strip which mounts to the rear of that skirt on both sides of the truck shining rear-ward. Scroll down to see a photo of what we're referring to. This option includes a quick-disconnect connector which allows the side skirt to be removed for servicing without damaging the LED strip wire connection to the truck.

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.

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.

Your choice. More details about this controller can be found on the GEN2 Dual Zone LED Controller product page as well as the CONTROLLERS navigation tab on this product page.
  • Integrate with an Existing Boogey Lights system. Select this configuration option if you already have an existing Boogey Lights multi-color RGB or Dual Color installation and are adding another light kit to your existing system. Example: You previously purchased our Under-Glow multi-color light system and RGB LED Controller. Now, you want to add the Grill and Air Vents to that existing system.Since you already have the RGB LED controller (or Dual Color switches), you don't need to buy another one.

Using an RGB Controller with Single Color LEDs

YES! It can be done. The advantage of using an RGB controller with single color LEDs is that in addition to being able to turn them on/off, you can also dim the lights as well as access additional features such as flashing, strobbing and breathing. Plus, if the LED Controller is Bluetooth capable, you can also control your single color lights via Bluetooth.

If you're thinking of using an RGB LED controller with single color LEDs, here's a wiring diagram to assist you.
