Pacer Performance Vehicle Lights - Roof Lamp - PP20-236S Review


Ellen: Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the Pacer Performance High Five LED truck cab light kit. It's going to come with everything you see laid out here on the table, and this is basically going to give us that big rig look for our truck, even if we don't already have those lights. These are styled after the 1999 through 2016 Ford factory Super Duty trucks that have the high five or those lights up in the top of the cab. In addition to looking cool, they also help you to stay more visible, even in inclement weather so other trucks can see you out on the road, especially in areas where there's a lot of fog, mist, rain, snow, things like that.

It just helps to keep us more visible while we're out there driving.With our five lights, we're also going to have the little gasket to provide some water protection so we don't get any water coming down into our headliner on our truck. The thing that I would note right off the bat with this is that you do have to make some modifications to whatever vehicle you're adding this to. You do you have to do some drilling, so keep that in mind.Each light will take three holes, two for the studs, and then one for the wiring to drop down through. I'm going to go ahead and hook up one of our lights. It comes with the LEDs to make the connection.

It also comes with the amber incandescent bulbs, as well. You don't really need them for this kit since if it comes with the LEDs, but if you wanted to use them for something else, of course you can. They're going to be a T10-194 style bulb. It's actually pretty common in a lot of other applications anywhere that uses a little wedge style light. These LEDs are also in that same style to fit in the socket.I'm going to connect my power to the red wire.

Ground goes to the black wire with the ring terminal. Turn on my power source here. If your light doesn't come on at first, you might need to switch it around. They are polarity sensitive. Take that out.

Turn it the other way. Pop that back in. Try it again. There we go. It's always a good idea to check that before you actually get this installed, just so you don't have to take everything apart to get that light changed out.You can remove this bolt to take the lens off, if you want. It does make it a little bit easier, as far as checking that later on. I'm going to turn the lights out in the studio so you can get an idea of how bright this is, even in low light situations. It's not going to be terribly bright. It's not going to illuminate the night or anything. It's just there to give you a little bit better visual as you're out on the road. I can really only light up one at a time with my setup, so you have to just use your imagination for all five being lit up. This is the smoke lens, so it's a little bit darker than the clear lens, and you can also find. It does also come in amber, which is the more traditional look, as well. You can find both of those variants here at etrailer.com, if you would rather check those out.Again, as far as our install, we do have to do some drilling to get everything installed. You'll also have to drop down your headliner so that you can get the hardware in place. It takes some nuts to thread that in place and get it stabilized. One thing to note there with the wiring, it comes with these quick splice connectors. Normally, I warn people off of these, but in this case with the way the install goes, it actually will be just fine. Since these are going to be living inside the vehicle, you don't really have to worry about any kind of water protection. You're going to be splicing this in with your bulk wire, so your bulk wire's going to go in one line and then each of your lights need to splice into it. Quick splices actually do a pretty good job of making that a little bit simpler to do.It comes with enough to do that, also comes with a switch so we can bypass our factory lighting system. We don't have to worry about cutting into our factory wiring, voiding any warranties, and causing any issues with that. It is also going to be fuse protected. We'll have this little inline fuse that goes in the back of the switch, so we don't have to worry about any shorts from our vehicle to the lights or anything like that. The power source will be off the battery or maybe off of a fuse, if you want to go that route.A pretty complete kit, it is going to last a long time with those LED bulbs. We won't really have to worry about changing that out anytime soon. That's definitely an advantage over the incandescent bulbs that it does come with. It does meet SAE specifications. As far as the size of each of our lights, you about four inches long by three inches wide at the widest point and about one and three quarter inches tall.That's pretty much going to do it for our look at the Pacer Performance High Five LED truck cab light kit for the Ford. If you want to check out any of those other colors I mentioned again, you can find those right here at etrailer.com as well as a lot of other things to make life a little bit more enjoyable while you're out there on the road. Thanks for watching.
