    Well isn't that just MERRY and BRIGHT! Looks good, be careful with the colored lights. Back in school a kid had a tree with lights in the bed of his truck and got razed by the local cops for the lights.

    I'd just buy a set with batteries sounds the quickest and easy?

    LOL, my dad has a metal christmas tree with lights mounted on a pallet he used to put in his truck, amazing how many people would stop and ask about it.

    I'd use white lights (not red or blue [location dependent]) and just fun them to an inverter in the cab.

    It was about 4 feet tall, it was a piece of pipe with 4 triangular pieces of steel mesh welded to it all painted green, he also had some metal ornatments and little metal candy canes. also had a star on top. He ran a extension cord into a power inverter in the truck. I think he did sometimes drive around with it lit up. That was a few years ago, I wish I had a picture of it it was pretty neat.
