Cab Clearance Light

Postby kennyawong [OP] » Jul 21 2013, 4:45am

Sup everyone? New to the forum. I've had my Chevy Silverado 1500 for a few years now and I've done a few mods here and there, lifted it a bit. The only problem I'm running into right now is that I am trying to install Cab Clearance Lights. Its one of those 5 Piece teardrop sets, I personally don't like the 3 piece set up.
My question is that I am trying to splice these wires up to the Low Beam. Can someone give me some sort of instruction as to how I would wire them?
-Each light only has a ground coming out of it, so I am going to add a positive lead onto each light.
-Would I have to change the fuse for the Low Beam on the fuse box or use a wired fuse within the circuit?

I think if you look the wire that's coming out of them is actually the positive wire.When you screw them to the roof they will ground themselves.you should be able to see which screw is the ground because it will have a metal contact under it.As far a wiring them up why run them to the low beam run them to you front marker lights instead that way they can be on with out the headlights on.
