Default Extra Grill LED's?
Has anybody considered installing extra LED's behind the front grill?

When I look closely, the 3 stock LED's are placed in oval shaped cutouts which the lights reside in... opposed to the rest of the holes which are rectangular.

So, I know that the stock LED's wouldn't fit perfectly, but I bet that adding two additional stock LED's and securing one on each far side (5 slots over) would give you a total of 5 LED's on the front grill and look better than the 3.

Also, I haven't undone the screws holding the LED's in place, but it looks like the posts are directly screwed into the back of the grill... so, you might have to drill a couple small holes to mount the additional LED's.

As I said, it wouldn't be a perfect fit, and splicing into the two wires on the existing side lights... I wouldn't think that would be a problem, there just LED's that don't draw that much power.

What do you think?

That, or I thought about installing a Red LED in the middle of the grill in one of the only 2 small square holes on that grill... right between the O and the R... Kind of a "Knight Rider" thing.

The current marker light set up is required by the DOT due to the Raptors width. One on each side and three in the middle, frnt and bk. I guess they don't require the lights to be place at the top like you see on tracker trailers.
I do like your Night Rider idea, I know you can find scanning led lights online.
