Mounting Instructions

Step 1 - Identify Mounting Location

Identify the location you would like to mount your Stage Series Rock Lights.

Step 2 - Prepare Rock Light for Mounting

Remove the outer lens from your rock light, then remove the center rubber dust seal. 

Step 3 - Drill Mounting Hole

To mount the rock light using the center hole option, drill a hole using a 7/32" or 15/64" bit in your desired location.

Step 4 - Drill Wire Hole

If you would like to hide the wiring, line up the light over the hole you just drilled and drill an additional 3/8" hole in the appropriate location to run the wire through your mounting surface. Otherwise, pull the wiring to the side. 

Step 5 - Mount Rock Light

Use the included nut, bolt, and washers to mount the light as shown in the diagram below.

Step 6 - Mount with Zip Ties (Optional)

You may alternatively use zip ties for mounting the rock light to any available attachment point, with integrated tabs on each side of the light.

Step 7 - Reassemble Rock Light

Reinstall the rubber dust seal and clip the lens into position.

Wiring Instructions

Step 8 - Route Switch Wiring

Determine a suitable location to mount the switch, near the battery or main power terminal. Route the switch wiring to that location.

Step 9 - Connect to Battery

Connect the red power input wire to the positive battery/power terminal. Connect the black ground wire to the negative battery terminal or a factory grounding point.

Step 10 - Select Switch Location

Determine a suitable location to mount the switch in the cabin of the vehicle.

Route the switch wiring to that location. This may require going through the vehicle firewall. We recommend following the path of the factory wiring harness, and unplugging the switch while routing the wires.

Step 11 - Mount the Switch

Drill a 3/4" hole and mount the switch. Reconnect wires to switch.

NOTE: The gold spade on the switch should be connected to the black (ground) wire.

Step 12 - Route the Extension Wires

Identify the extension and splitter wires (included with 8-pack kits) included in your kit. Depending on the kit you ordered, you will have 3M and 5M extension wires. Route the extension wires to each LED, avoiding any moving parts or direct contact with heat sources. Following the factory wire loom is the best practice.

See the diagrams below for the most common way to wire the kit. Plug the output connector into the LED.
