    after seeing alot of guys around here add flush mount LEDs to there factory bumper i had to jump on the band wagon.

    i bought some clear/red S/T/T LEDs off ebay, then decided where to cut. then wired them to the tail/brake lights on my 1998 ford expedition.

    hope you enjoy, i plan to add some extra reverse lights also at a later date.

    If you relay those with an LED flasher, you'll have your stock functions AND strobe functions!!!
    That's how I did mine; (sorry about the thread hi-jack)

    What did you use to cut the bumper, and how are they fastened on? Looks great.

    yep lights just pop into the rubber gromit and thats what holds them in.

    i used a 2 1/2" hole saw and sawzal to make the cuts.
