All Lights Off:



Hazard Lights/Turn Signals:



Detail Shots:





Output shots:









Note that I did not edit the "output" shots at all. Those are just taken on my DSLR on the "Auto" setting, and they are close to what I see in "real life". I did edit the other pictures for appearance, and to try and even them out for brightness.

Umm...That looks awesome man!

It gives the van a meaner, more badass look!

What's next for the van?

Next things would be tinted front windows, body colour front grille, and then maybe the HD brakes + 17" wheels

Those won't be any time soon however.

that just looks incredible!!! Very nice job.
Thanks!

Looks awesome. Nice even output on the lights too.
Thanks :)

The cut-off shot on the wall picture is a bit misleading, as the van is pointing down in that area because of the slope of the floor. The cutoff is higher than that, as is shown in the other pictures. I was just showing that for the cutoff lines.

That's bad a$$!!

I might get some details on those
Thanks.

I think I posted them in the other thread, but if you have questions let me know.

Hey UN4GTBL, Was that some sort of Kit that you got for the LED's around the Headlight Cover? I Be Likin That! :thumb: Just also wondered if you had to plug in a resistor for the LED strip's? Unfortunately am not as handy as being able to do something like that, but there is a shop that I have used for years, that should be able to duplicate that, If it is all right with you! Really, Really, like it! Thanks for sharing that, and all of the Hard Work you have put into it! :ThumbsUp:

The LEDs that I installed around the headlights are LEDs in some silicon tubes that alternate between the white LEDs and the orange LEDs for parking lights and turn signals. I changed the factory incandescent front parking light/turn signal bulb to a switchback LED as well to match the LED strips

I do have resistors installed to avoid the "fast flash" although if you kept the factory turn signal bulbs, they probably wouldn't be necessary.

I got the idea from horntxjx (who actually gave me the black headlights) as he has the LEDs along the outside and bottom of the headlights. But as he has a T&C and I thought it imitated the current Chrysler style, so I looked around and saw the new Chargers, and decided to imitate their LED DRLs. I definitely don't own the idea, so do as you please, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery lol :)

Thanks, am Off, (Actually am always Off, but am leaving the house also), too take a picture of the front of your Van that you posted, to see what they are going to charge me to do that to my Van! Will keep you all posted as to how it progresses and cost! Thanks again for sharing! :thumb:

Quick question. How did you get the headlights apart? My company just ordered a 2016 SE Plus with the Blacktop package, and I want to put my factory HIDs into the black housing. I have heard you put them in the oven for an amount of time to get the glue to warm up, but I REALLY don't want to ruin my HIDs, or the new blacktop ones for that matter...

I opened a set of black aftermarket lights that were rather easy to open by putting them in the oven for ~15 minutes. But OEM ones are harder to open - I opened the OEM lights on my Caliber, and don't wish that on anybody. See if lowfat could direct you.

OEM headlights use a permaseal sealant. It is very difficult to remove. Heat, pry, cut, rinse, repeat. Expect to spend hours if not days cutting it off. Then you install a new butyl glue (windshield glue).
You opened your factory lights right?
