Custom lights are one of the easiest and most functional upgrades you can make on your truck or Jeep, and they add instant aesthetic appeal to both!

With so many different options, how do you know which type of custom lighting is best for you? This is your guide to options for custom lighting.

Interior Custom Lighting

If you've only thought of lighting as an exterior mod until now, then you aren't alone. However, you can deck out the interior too! The most common type of custom interior lighting is colored LED lighting. You can choose from an array of different colors, including red, green, blue, purple, and more.

Interior lighting is typically installed along the bottom of the dash or the rear window. Please keep in mind that custom lighting should never interfere with safe driving practices.

Off-Roading Custom Lighting

Navigating the great outdoors calls for visibility. In many cases, standard headlights won't do the trick. Let's check out the most common exterior lighting options for off-roading vehicles.

  • Upgraded headlights - Custom headlights such as HID provide the best visibility by having the longest reach of almost any style headlight. As a bonus, the cooler radiance elevates the look of your vehicle.
  • Rock lights - Installed on the wheel wells, rock lights increase ground visibility and come in various fun colors.
  • Spotlights - Most typically mounted on the roof, spotlights are perfect when camping or even working on a late-night project.
  • Cube lights - Mounted on the front of the vehicle, cube lights aid the headlights by increasing visibility.

This is a non-inclusive list. The sky is the limit when it comes to outfitting your truck or Jeep for off-road adventures. Floodlights, bumper lights, and grille lights are additional options for increasing visibility no matter where you may be.

Street Style Custom Lighting

If you plan on sticking to the streets, the chances are good that you care more about increasing the aesthetics of your vehicle versus increasing visibility. The best place to start is with the headlights. Halo lights are a popular choice because they add a really cool "halo" effect that instantly takes the look of your ride to the next level. Diamond clear headlights are another favorite choice. The lenses are made of several different angles, which means light is reflected off all the angles, making them seemingly sparkle and stand out.

However, it is underbody lighting that takes the cake for being the most exciting custom lighting option. Installed on the underside frame of your vehicle, choose from many different colors and use a Bluetooth remote control to change colors as often as you want. There is no question that you will turn heads wherever you go!
