WRECKER UNDER-GLOW LED Light Kit 

Easy order Under-Glow LED Light kit for your Wrecker! The closest you'll come to a custom fit without bringing your truck to Boogey Lights HQ.

Boogey Lights® super bright Heavy Duty LED light strips are ideal for working truck applications including commercial tow trucks and wreckers. This UNDER-GLOW LED light kit can be configured to fit any 2, 3 or 3 axle wrecker. It is designed to attach to the bottom of the wrecker and provide under-glow lighting. For flatbed/rollback and hook & chain wreckers, the under-glow lighting is full perimeter (all four sides of the truck). For all other truck types it's three sides: drivers, passengers and under the front bumper. There's even an option to add wheel well lighting. When installed properly, you'll only see the glow from the LED strips; you'll never see the actual LED strips themselves.

We realize there is a lot of information on this product page. We encourage you to take the time to review the information we have assembled here before making your purchase decision. Our lighting systems are the best in the world but they also offer more options and features than anything else. It's important to take time to read the product details to achieve the look you want. Be sure to scroll down, expand each text group section and read the information presented. We think you'll find it's very thorough.

This product is built on our popular high performance HEAVY DUTY LED STRIPS. They 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 wrecker and tow truck commercial applications.

PRODUCT OPTIONS

This kit is 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 as well as single zone or dual zone strobbing and flashing capabilities. We offer complete customization capabilities too for those unique situations. Below is an overview of all product options offered.

WRECKER TYPE: Select the type of wrecker from the drop down box. This tells us the body style. If you're not sure of the type, we have diagrams of each type in the WRECKER TYPES text group in the product description below. Scroll down and take a look.

NUMBER OF AXLES. Select the number of axles (including the steer axle) for your wrecker. Important this be correct.

WHEELBASE (in inches): Select the wheelbase (in inches) of the wrecker from the available range of options in the drop down box. These measurements are in inches. This is super important to be correct. Do not guess at the wheelbase measurement of your wrecker. We strongly suggest measuring it yourself before placing your order. Do not assume the number you were told is correct. Measure it. Scroll down to the next text group to see diagrams of how to take the wheelbase measurement for your wrecker. Did we mention it's important to get an accurate wheelbase measurement before placing your order?

LED COLOR OPTIONS: This option tells us what color format you want for your wrecker under-glow led light kit. There are two multi-color, seven dual-color and eight single color options. We have a detailed discussion about these LED color options further down on this product page. Be sure to read it. It's important. If you select any of the two multi-color options, you'll be presented with a couple of LED CONTROLLER selections (essential to operate RGBx LEDs). If you select any of the nine dual-color or eight single color options, you'll be presented with optional switching and control options.

CONTROLLER CONFIGURATION: This option is required for any RGB or RGBA color selection. In addition there are options for both single color and dual-color LED selections. There is a detailed discussion about these options further down on this product page. It's important to read it.

WHEEL WELL LIGHTS: If you want to light up the wheel wells of your wrecker, select yes from the drop down. The default is no.

MANUFACTURER NAME: Type in the manufacturer of the wrecker.

MODEL NAME: Type in the model name (and/or number) of the wrecker.

WHEELBASE MEASUREMENTS

The wheelbase measurement is the most important piece of data we need. If you get this wrong, your light kit will not fit properly. In our experience, lots of guys think they know the wheelbase of their truck but more often than not, the number they use has been passed down to them from the dealer, previous owner or some website post about the truck. Do not assume the wheelbase number you were given is accurate. We strongly urge customers to take an extra 10 minutes before ordering to take an accurate wheelbase measurement of their wrecker. The other problem of course is that not everyone knows what the wheelbase measurement is. To assist customers, we have created three wheelbase measurement diagrams based on the number of axles to show what that wheelbase measurement is. Scroll down.

WB = Wheelbase. This is the measurement we need.
AF = After Frame measurement.
CA = Cab to Axle measurement.
B = Bumper measurement.

CONTROLLER CONFIGURATION

This product offers seven different Controller Configuration options. Below is a review of each option.

No Switch Mechanism. Provide Your Own.: This option is available on all single color and dual-color LED light selections. It's not an option for RGB or RGBA LED color options. Select this option if you have your own switching mechanism. NOTE: We strongly suggest using a relay. These lights are bright and as such, pull more amperage than a typical LED light (see specs tab for details).

Single Color On/Off with relay (hard wired): This option is available for any single color selection. It's a simple on/off switch with relay.

Single Color On/Off with relay (wireless): This option is available for any single color selection. It's a simple on/off wireless switch with relay. Includes two keyfobs with a simple on and off button. See photo in product photo carousel.

Single Color Flasher (+ Strobing + Solid On) with Dual Zone control:  This is a dual zone flasher controller that offers three modes for single color lights: solid on, 3 burst flash and strobing. Both the flashing and strobing modes have 5 different speed settings. There's also 5 brightness levels. It's controlled by a hand held RF wireless remote (see photo in the photo carousel above). Because it's a dual zone controller, each zone can be operated individually (e.g. zone 1 = red, zone 2 = amber) or they can be operated together. This flasher controller includes our 'Quick Switch' feature that allows you to wire in a toggle switch (e.g. on the dash) to turn the lights on (or off) in the last used settings. This Quick Switch feature is zone specific. This flasher will work with both single color and dual-color LEDs. Scroll down for details on this controller option.

Dual Color On/Off/On with relay (hard wired): This option is available for any dual color selection. It's a simple three position on/off/on switch with relay. For example, UP = Amber. Down = Red. Middle postion = Off.

Dual Color Flasher (+ Strobing + Solid On) with Dual Zone control: This is a dual zone flasher controller that offers three modes for dual color lights: solid on, 3 burst flash and strobing. Both the flashing and strobing modes have 5 different speed settings. There's also 5 brightness levels. It's controlled by a hand held RF wireless remote (see photo in the photo carousel above). Because it's a dual zone controller, each zone can be operated individually (e.g. zone 1 = red, zone 2 = amber) or they can be operated together. This flasher controller includes our 'Quick Switch' feature that allows you to wire in a toggle switch (e.g. on the dash) to turn the lights on (or off) in the last used settings. This Quick Switch feature is zone specific. This flasher will work with both single color and dual-color LEDs. Scroll down for details on this controller option.

Multi-Color RGBx Single Zone and Dual Zone: For the two multi-color LED options, this kit offers both SINGLE ZONE and DUAL ZONE controller options. As the names suggest, a Single Zone controller has just one single lighting zone. All LEDs wired to the controller are on one zone. Whatever color or feature set you apply will be what you get on all leds. Pretty simple. With our Dual Zone controller, you can set up and operate two distinct lighting zones which can be operated and controlled individually or together. On a Dual Zone controller each lighting zone is capable of supporting up to 1500 LEDs for a total of 3000 LEDs. It will work with your Android® or iOS® Smart phone. It will also work with the included M7 Style RF wireless remote. Details on features are below.

GEN2 LED CONTROLLERS: RF + Bluetooth Combo Wireless Control

The LED Controllers offered in this kit are our GEN2 Single Zone and Dual Zone Heavy Duty Bluetooth COMBO LED Controllers. COMBO means they can be operated using either the included M7 RF wireless hand held remote OR your Bluetooth enable smart phone (and our free APP). Both will work. The RGB version is capable of displaying 16 million different color combinations. The GEN2 RGBx version can display even more color combinations depending on the type of LED strips connected to them. In addition, lighting effects on the Bluetooth 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 smart phone screen so you can adjust the speed and intensity to get the lighting the way you want it.

SINGLE COLOR Strobing / Flashing Dual Zone LED Controller

Designed primarily for commercial, working truck applications this heavy duty LED controller is ideal for situations where you need to strob or flash large numbers of single color LEDs. A typical scenario is with wide load truck haulers, wreckers and tow trucks. The unique dual zone capability allows the lights to be segregated into two distinct lighting zones. For example zone one might be red LEDs and zone two amber LEDs. Another option could be to assign the two zones into LEDs mounted on different parts of the truck (underglow = white, grill lighting = amber). The options are endless. Each zone can be operated independently or together. In addition to ON/OFF control, STROBING and FLASHING, there's a STEADY-ON mode that offers dimming making it ideal for recreational vehicle applications as well. All of these features are operated using the included wireless RF handheld remote.

Each zone will support up to 1500 tri-chip 5050 LEDs which means a total of 3000 tri-chip LEDs on a single LED controller. The operating modes include strobing, 3 burst flash and solid on. The speed can be adjusted and there's a brightness setting too. All of these features are operated using the included wireless RF hand held remote. This controller includes our Quick-Switch feature which when paired with a simple on/off switch will allow the controller to be turned on/off via a hard wired switch (mounted on the dash for example) as well.

Key Features & Capabilities

  • Heavy Duty, Dual Zone, Single Color LED controller. Will work with single color LEDs. Each zone has one 12v+ and one 12v- output.
  • Dual Zone capabiliy. Each zone can be operated independently or together using the included RF wireless hand held remote (see photo in product photo carousel).
  • Three operating modes: Steady On, Strobing, 3 Burst Flashing. Each can be adjusted per zone.
  • The speed of the strobing and flashing mode can be adjusted with 5 different settings.
  • Brightness can be adjusted with 5 different settings.
  • Boogey Lights® 'Quick Switch' feature allows the user to connect a simple on/off toggle switch to the controller (one Quick-Switch input is available per zone) to allow the lights attached to each zone to be turned on/off via a switch mounted on the dash instead of using the RF remote. This feature does not have to be used if you don't want it.
  • Designed for 12vdc power. 1500 tri-chip capacity per lighting zone. 20amps per zone.
  • Measures 5.5" long x 3.25" wide and 1.5" high. Note that the overall length to accommodate room for wires is 10".

LED Color Options

This light kit is offered in eight single color options, seven dual-color options and in two multi-color configurations. Detail are as follows:

SINGLE COLOR: Each single color LED chip has 3 diodes inside which means single color LEDs are the brightest available since all three diodes are the same color. The AMBER Single Color LED chip is DOT compliant. The available single color LEDs are: red, green, blue, amber, orange, white, pink and magenta (hot purple).

DUAL COLOR: The Dual Color LED configuration uses our RGBA LED strip where the primary color can be one of 7 different colors and the secondary color is always amber. 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 a 3 position switch (or two switches) - and relays; one to control each color. The primary color is chosen from the available LED dual color drop down list. The secondary color is always amber.

MULTI COLOR RGB or RGBA: The multi-color RGB LED version provides over 16 million color combinations using the Boogey Lights LED Controller. The RGBA version offers the same color combinations as RGB except there is an additional diode in the chip which is AMBER. 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. See details about this controller in the above CONTROLLER CONFIGURATION section.

QUICK-SWITCH FEATURE

The Quick Switch feature comes standard on our HEAVY DUTY SINGLE ZONE and HD DUAL ZONE LED Controllers (all RGBx 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 RGBx diodes normally.

Quick-Switch Wiring Diagram

SINGLE ZONE OR DUAL ZONE

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.

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 somewhere in the circuit to turn them off/on. We offer a number of options in this kit for switching single color LEDs. 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:

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.

WHAT'S INCLUDED + OPTIONS

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.

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.

Installation Information

IMPORTANT. You must have an understanding of 12vdc power. An essential skill with installation of any Boogey Lights LED products is knowing how to correctly wire the product to a 12vdc circuit. This includes understanding the importance of having a properly sized fuse at the power source, polarity, how to properly seal an electrical connection, using properly sized wire gauge for the load, measuring voltage and measuring the additional amperage draw you're adding. If you are uncertain or unfamiliar with any of these concepts, we urge you to ask someone who has the knowledge to assist you. Electricity is unforgiving.
