Guys, I'm looking for LED Rock Lights to install on my rig, and run off of my sPOD.

I've done searches on the board, but haven't come up with much. What has everyone had luck with or like, and where have you installed them with good luck?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts here...

RC :beer:

I have a set sitting in the box in my garage waiting to be installed...

I have a question for VisionX... is there a way I can bypass all the disco features these things have.. I just want to wire them strictly on/off to my sPod. I wanted to ask before I start cutting the cords..lol

Basically doing away with the blue master control box..

And how tough is the direct wiring to the battery to rid the cig plug?

I still have a set of 4 now (originally 6) blue single diode LEDs that I had mounted on my TJ. I picked them up from Bright Eyes back in '06 @ EJS. When I get home, I'll pull one out and snap a pic of it for ya. They were bright as hell too even for being blue. I haven't decided if they are going on the JK yet or not.

Yes, you can do away with the controller.
Cut off the plug ends of all the LED pods, and connect them all together, solder, etc.. Then wire them up just like any electrical accessory to a switch and power/ground. The total of 8 lights draws about 3-watts, so it should be pretty simple to do.
Thanks

Anyone have a electro schematic on how to wire this to a switch? (fuse rating/ relays etc.)

tantrums rock!



I spent hours and hours figuring the best spot that was both out of the way of the rocks and produced the best light for driver and spotter. The toughest ones were the front with the shorty bumper. I'm happy with the result. Wired them directly to the sPOD. Ditched the fancy disco effects. Wires run through the frame rails.

i have the tantrum kit, but i did a few things differently with mine.

first i only used 6 of the 8 pods...will explain.

I bypassed the remote and all of the funny business that comes with the kit and installed another lead in the splitter box. Reason being that i have the FLW rear bumper with the rock lights and used the other lead to power those lights. this unified the 6 tantrum pods (two along the sliders, one under the front fender) and i will then splice the front lights of on FLW front bumper in.

i have two extra pods that i still dont know what i will do with, but i have night wheeled iwth these things and they are awesome!!!!

tantrum all the way

you can get the basic kit. just lights and switch or get the optional remote. they blink in different patterns and will lilght up when the BASS hits. also in 7 different colors

This is a VisionX LED Tantrum Rock Light kit. It comes with 8-LED pods that have 15-mini LED's each that are water proof and the controller to do all the fancy stuff (if you like that sort of thing) they can be hard wired into an on/off switch if you want.
