2016 Silverado 1500 LED Light Bar Install

How to Install a Rough Country 50" Black Series LED Light Bar

2016 Silverado 1500 LED Light Bar Install

Postby Z71-or-bust [OP] » May 13 2018, 7:33pm

Hey All,

This week I'll be purchasing the Rough Country Sport Bar and 50" Black Series LED light bar. However, before I did that, I had a few questions.

1) Is anyone currently running this set up on their truck?
2) Does anyone know if the wiring harness is long enough to run from the light bar, down the back of the cab, under the cab, and then up to the battery?
3) Does the 2016 Silverado 1500 come with an accessories plug that I can just plug into or do I need to wire it to the battery? (My truck did come from the factory with LED bed lights)

If anyone could help, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I doubt that the supplied harness will be long enough to route that far, but they might offer an extension. I hooked my lightbar straight to the battery.

So through my topics. You will see the black series light bar install on a 2015 and 2016. It shows how I wired it and how I made the switch work.

I'm having a hard time finding it on your profile, is there any chance you could post a link to it?

Great! Thank you for the help, I'm glad there's an extra tab in the firewall grommet. I was wondering how I would get the wires into the cab. I really like the flush mount switch, I'm just not much of an electrician to figure that out. Maybe I'll take a stab at it.

Yeah I was really upset I couldn’t install it on my 2017 with the grill shutters. It’s a great light.
