    It's actually not to hard, the mount goes in first, then mount the lights. After you get this done it depends on which lights you go with as too if you need to change out the connectors on the wire harness they provide. Get past that step and you'll need to decide how you want to run the wire harness. I dropped my skid plate, pulled the connections up and out of the way of anything coming off the tires and then used heavy duty zip ties to mount the harness across from the driver side over to the passenger side to the frame. There's a Y in the harness so secure the excess wire here at the Y and then run the single thread with your open end of wires straight up towards the battery, secure again at this point and run the remaining back to the up lifter wires that are tucked in behind the fuse box. You'll need to get out the Supplement manual to confirm which color wire goes to which switch. Power up and check your lights, if all is good then remount your skid plate and your basically done.

    Note from my experience: had some really weird electrical gremlins that were truck issues and not lights issues. They mostly cleared up on their own in a day but i still have one up lifter switch that doesn't have power under the hood. My trucks due for oil change so this is on the list to have checked out.

    Any further questions, just ask and i can walk you through it.

    I have the BD setup on mine as well, highly recommend. I did lots of research on these before purchasing, in conversations with Raptor specialty shops all unanimously were saying BD over Rigid for quality and better lighting. Who knows maybe they just get a better commission on the BD's! Mine have been great though, I have the sportsman 3-light setup from their website.

    These are from Rigid. The outside of the light is orange and the inside is the white fog. The orange outlined is wired into my running lights, The fogs are wired into the Aux. switch in the cab. So cool. If someone comes out with a light bar in black that mounts behind the grill, I'm in
