LED Light Test

On the shelf in my truck cap, under the gun rack I have a series of LED strips that allow me to adjust the brightness and color inside my truck cap.

LED lights are very energy efficient and inexpensive -- the newest set of color changing lights can be changed to eight different colors, different brightness settings, and a series of flash and fade patterns. I also have a strip of lights along the roof that provide full illumination of the truck cap, hooked to a dimmer, so I can adjust the brightness to fit my mood and light requirements.

I don't think I've ever spent more then $15 on any of the LED lights in the cap, the dimmer was maybe $8, and the newest set I have comes with a remote and many color choice settings that I got on Ebay for $11.

~Review~ TEQStone 6-Switch LED Light Bar Panel with Volt Meter USB & Cig Lighter 4 Truck, Jeep, Boat

I got tired of the awful Walmart switch box I used to control the lights on my truck cap. Damn wires kept pulling loose and switches sometimes would fail. Not good when your trying to turn lights on in the dark. Based on the reviews and nice big switches it had on it, this is the unit I got for controlling the lights on the truck cap.

The great thing about this unit is it uses blade clips and you can freely re-wire each part of the unit as you choose, to disable lights on the buttons or for that matter switch off the voltage meter, so it's not glowing while your trying to sleep.
