Flush mounted LED Floods to my stock 2014 3500HD rear bumper

Postby jjs405 [OP] » Jan 21 2020, 7:35pm

Here's how I added two Rigid LED Floods to my stock 2014 3500HD rear bumper.

Requirements:
• Skill Level: Anyone who can use power tools without causing injury to themselves or others
• Time: About 2 Hours or so, maybe a little longer to pretty up the wiring harness
• Special Tools: Angle Grinder or Dremel, Soldering Iron, Wire Crimper.

*** All pics at the bottom ***

- I used masking tape to outline the area that I wanted to mount the lights after checking clearance behind the bumper. The necessary clearance dictated where to mount the lights. I used an angle grinder to cut out the metal (Not shown), but you could use a Dremel tool as well.

- Pics 1, 2 & 3 show the cut-out area in the bumper. I touched up the bare metal with paint to protect the exposed surfaces.

- Pics 4, 5 & 6 shows what I purchased. Rigid # 925113 Flush Mount LED Floods.

- Pics 7, 8 & 9 show the mounted lights prior to me zip tying the wiring up inside. I protected all the wires with wire loom and ran it along with the factory wiring, zip-tying them together.

- Pic 10 shows the schematic of how I wired the lights; you don't need to be this complex. I wanted the On-Off-On switch so that I could turn on the reverse lights on demand as needed. In the middle position they don't come on at all, In the other position they turn on manually as needed or with the switch in the other position they come on with the reverse lights.

I used a relay to carry the current and used a fuse tap under the hood as the signal wire so that I did not have to use or potentially damage the factory wiring harness. (Initially I was going to mount a weather-proof relay inside the rear tail light area & tap the reverse light there, but later changed my mind to this version)

Conclusion: I wanted it to blend in with the truck & am glad that I went with the flush mount LED's. They have been on for 2 years now and I do not regret the install & would do it again!
