If the sun never set, you'd never need the Extang B-Light Tonneau Lighting System. But, when darkness descends, this ingenious truck bed lighting system floods your payload with dazzling illumination. Simply flip the in-cab switch, and night turns into day.
Gone are the days of holding a Maglight in one hand or gripping it between your teeth while you hunt down that elusive 5/16" socket. With the Extang B-Light Tonneau Lighting System mounted under your bed rails, your hands and mouth are free to rummage. Whether you drive a modern F-150 or a classic LUV, the Extang B-Light works with your pickup. Its universal design fits any truck bed, even if you have a soft tonneau, hard tonneau or no tonneau installed.
Best of all, your Extang Tonneau Light packs some serious candlepower. Your kit comes with eight lamps all together—that's four per side. And, each lamp is loaded with six high-intensity LED bulbs. Add it up, and you're looking at 48 blinding bulbs drenching your entire truck bed from the tailgate all the way up to your bulkhead. It even includes a 1-year warranty.

I had one light fixture without the sticky tape, but not that big of a deal. The switch seems to be the issue. It is designed to attached with screws from the back. Well if you plan on installing the switch in the bed area like most people, then this is a problem, you can't get to the back to screw it in, as of now it's just hanging there until I find a better switch. It is a little bit of a pain to run a wire all the way up to the battery, I couldn't find a hot wire in the back area, but that's just the vehicle, not the lighting system. I got a great price but even then, it was just 'ok' I would just think that for getting a cheap switch that really has no business being included and a cheap product in general, it seems a bit over-priced. On a positive note, they do seem to light the bed quite nicely, especially when my tonneau cover is closed.

The lights were about as bright as I wanted. Not like a spotlight, but not dim either. Nice white/blue light. The wiring was easy although the diagram provided by the manufacturer was horrible. Installed in about 2 hours. The lights are high quality. I would recommend this to a friend. My dad is also going to purchase based on seeing them in my truck.

I can't seem to get these things to work. I have an F250 diesel, if that makes a difference? I have the lights connected to the switch and the switch connected to the battery. I don't have the original switch because that one melted on first attempt. So, my new switch has 3 connectors on it: (1) supply volts; (2) on acc; and (3) earth ground. When the + is connected to the supply volts and the - is connected to ground the lights come on, but they wont go off - its like it bypasses the switch all together. When the + is connected to the on ACC position, and the - is on the ground - it blows the fuse. So, anyone have any thoughts? Oh, and I had to run my own wire from the battery because the supplied was not long enough and I am using 14 gauge wire.
