A client from here in Anchorage came into Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security in search of some lighting upgrades and a remote starter for this 2016 Ford F-350. The client explained that he liked to go camping up near Wasilla, so the extra light would make evening drives much safer. We had a look at the truck, and showed the client a few options. He had done some research and found an auxiliary lighting solution that he also liked. We scheduled an appointment to perform the installation.
HID Upgrade Kits
We started by removing the factory headlight and fog light bulbs from the truck. We installed Turnagain H13 BiXenon bulbs in the headlight housings. Additionally, we added 9145/H10 bulbs in the fog light housings. Both bulb sets have a 6000K color temperature that gives them a great balance of light output and a cool modern look. We used a Hi/Lo harness on the headlight installation. We mounted the ballasts included with the kits securely, and we secured all the wiring out-of-sight. The result was a factory-looking installation with premium performance.
Led Light Bars
The client asked us to install a set of Rough Country LED light bars for him. Rough Country makes a kit that mounts a pair of single-row 30-inch LED light bars in the factory grille. We had to make a few minor adjustments to align the lights perfectly, but the kit made the installation simple and effective. The curved light bars match the contour of the front grill nicely.
We set the truck up with a DroneMobile cellular interface and a Compustar remote starter with an RF-1WG6 remote control. As with all of our remote starter installations, we check the truck into the shop and confirm the functionality of the basic electrical system. Once we complete and test the installation, we have a different technician double-check everything. Then we use our tablet-based app to recheck all the vehicle systems. Our process adds a few minutes to each installation. But when it is combined with our attention to detail such as the use of Tesa cloth tape and soldered electrical connections, we can be sure that every remote starter installation is as perfect as we can make it.
Using the DroneMobile, the client can control locking, unlocking and remote start functions from anywhere (as long as both his truck and his phone have a cellular data connection). He could be on the beach in Cancun and still can communicate with his truck!
