fairly easy to install. Hardest part is taking the door panel off. The special price right now for these are $75 for a set. We also have the Fender lights with sound activated control for $225 right now.

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
Image Light (All Vehicles) - $99.00 : The Double AA, Corvette and Camaro Modification Products

How to Install Image lights in Ford Raptor 2011-2012 (2010 and 2013 SEE BOTTOM)

Tools Needed:
- Small pick or small allen wrench will work
- Ratchet or screw driver that that will fit your sockets
- 11 mm socket – can’t remember but I believe this is the size
- 6 mm socket – I can’t remember but I believe this is the size
- 5.5 mm socket –
- Wire strippers
- Thin bladed flat head screw driver
- Beer (Smithwick’s or Left Hand Milk Stout is best for this job)
- Good Cigar

Firs things first, let’s remove that pesky door panel.

- The major bolts are behind the door release, bolt below the door pull and lastly all the bolts at the bottom of the door panel.

Use your handy dandy pick or small allen wrench and remove the plastic panel cover over door release.
This will reveal the 11MM Bolt(I believe it’s 11MM) use you ratchet or screw driver head to remove this bolt.
Next use your thin bladed screw driver to remove the cover on the inside of the door pull to reveal the other 11mm bolt and remove it as well.
The last sets of bolts you’ll have are at the bottom of the door and I believe that they are 6mm. Remove them (3) I believe.
Now here is where it get’s tricky. DO NOT PULL BACK ON DOOR PANEL. The door panel slides up and out.
Pull up on door panel and it should be loose at this point.
On the back side of the door release you’ll see that it has push releases on either side of it. Push those in and push the door pull through the door and turn it so you can slide it out of the door panel. You shouldn’t have a problem letting it just hang there for the time being.

- Drink beer
Pull back on the black covering (it’s held into place with a gluey substance)
Now you’ll need to see where in the door you want to mount the light. You might even want to try to rehook up the windows and watch it go up and down so you can see a good spot to mount.

Once you find this spot you’ll need to drill the hole and mount the light.

- If you have mirror lights then then you can use the purple wire from the harness that is going into the plug for power and you can ground out to any bolt on the door (verify that you have a good connection.

If you do not have mirror lights then you’ll need to do a bit more.

If you remove the door sill panel (just pulls or pry it up) you’ll notice a wiring harness that runs parallel in a channel. Remove some of the tape so you can get to the wires. For this purpose we’ll be using a 2011 Raptor for instances (2010 we’ll give you the details as well). You’ll be looking for the think purple wire and black and yellow (ground) that is running through (see picture).

I used t Tap connectors in the picture but you’re probably going to be better off using the red 3m fold over connectors.

The hard part here now is to run power through the door panel harness to the light. The lights aren’t generally designed to go this far so you’ll probably need a piece of wire to run from this location to the door panel.

It might also help to remove the door speakers so you have some more room that is where your 5.5 MM comes in,

After seeing this I’m sure you’ll need another beer so you can decide which way you’d prefer to run your wiring through the door panel.

Hint. I would avoid running 2 wires. Just tap your power from the purple wire in the picture and ground out through a good spot on the door.

Once you have everything hooked up test by opening another door as I’m sure the courtesy lamps have shut off. The image should be projected now if not check your connections and if day light it won’t show up well.

- To put door panel on just do a reverse order of taking off.

2010
Driver Front – Gray/Violet is your positive, (Ground to chassis)
Passenger Front – White is your positive , (Ground to chassis)
For rear doors you’ll need to run a bit more wire to these locations

2011
Driver Door – small solid Purple wire is Positive, (ground to door)
Passenger Door- small solid purple wire is positive, (Ground to chassis)
For rear doors you’ll need to run a bit more wire to these locations

2012
Driver Door – small solid Purple wire is Positive, (ground to door)
Passenger Door- small solid purple wire is positive, (Ground to chassis)
For rear doors you’ll need to run a bit more wire to these locations

2013
Driver Door – Thin yellow/green is positive
Passenger Door - Thin yellow/green is positive.
For rear doors you’ll need to run a bit more wire to these locations
