    Anyone have hideaways in the new Rams? (03-and up?) I'd like to put some ambers in my reverse lights but dont think they'd fit. What about the front? Any pics would be helpful!!

    Hideaway tubes will fit in the backup sections, just be sure to check with the clearance of the fasteners for the tail lamps before drilling. The front lenses are double layered. To mount the tubes in the front lenses, drill a 1.5" hole through the first layer and then a 1" hole in the reflector layer. No pics, sorry.

    Im going with 4 heads, 90 watts be good? Sounds like this project's going to be a little tricky to get them positioned right.

    I have clear hideway strobes in my turn signal lamps and my reverse lights and they are 100% brighter than any color that you can buy. And they are a little cheaper, too. :)

    The wiring and all I can handle. Im just scared with the placement in the lenses. Dont wanna drill a hole in the wrong spot lol. I think I'll be fine once I take a better look.
