Want to really show off your truck? Mounting rock lights to your vehicle is going to give you the perfect underglow. You'll turn heads when you roll up. Better yet, when you're out climbing boulders or off-roading, you'll see even more of the ground. Install a rock light kit to make an impression with your good looks and your mad skills.
What Makes the Best LED Rock Lights?
An LED rock light has to do a few things for your vehicle. Here's what you want when you install rock lights:
They've got to look good. Your LED rock lights should provide great ambient lighting in one color or in multiple color options while looking stylish themselves.
Your off-road vehicle needs reliable lights, so they should work well and keep working even if they get wet, bumped, or treated roughly.
Your LED rock light kit should provide good coverage and off-road lighting. Look for multiple lights, RGB rock lights for different colors, and the level of light output you want.
Finally, the right rock lights will also be easy to install. There should be clear instructions, simple wiring, and solid control options.
3 Things to Plan When You Add Rock Lights to Off-Road Vehicles
Rock lights are mounted underneath your vehicle in the chassis. Pick your installation spots, usually tucked away neatly, and add the lights. There are a few things to think about, though:
Some people use magnetic mounts, but we think these are bound to cause problems when rock crawling. Instead, we use a rubber surface mount and standard screws.
Rock lights drain the battery, so it's good to plan for this with your battery size or installation. They shouldn't be a big problem, but it's something to keep an eye on.
You can use white rock lights or a single color rock light with no problems at all. If you want RGB lights, you'll also need to install a controller. Some people sell a bluetooth controller, but we think the standard RF controller is more rugged and reliable.
So, plan your installation to account for a controller if you need one, screw holes for mounting rock lights securely, and the effect it will have on your vehicle's battery.

Black Oak Rock Lights
We know our rock lights are brilliant. Our customers know it, too. We sell a solid light and controller that can be combined to create the look you are going for. Two lights under the chassis to see? We got you. Want a whole set of RGB lights to party in music mode? We can do that, too.
Let's show you the only two things you need to form a great set of rock lights.
LED Off-Road Rock Lights
Black Oak LED's Rock Lights are the perfect addition to any vehicle! Whether you're rock crawling in Moab or out in the sticks, Black Oak LED's Off Road Rock Lights for trucks and other vehicles will keep your undercarriage and surrounding terrain lit up. These ATV underglow lights come in the color of your choice.
These lights are about 3" x 1" with mounting holes spaces close to 2" apart.
Total lumens is 495 for white rock lights and 220 for colored lights.
Amp draw is 0.35A
IP69K rating for complete waterproofing and durability
Stainless steel screws and mounting pad
Buy a pair of these to set up courtesy lights, augment your interior lights, or complete your outdoor, off-road look. For a full vehicle kit, you may want four, six, or even eight of them.
You can choose single-color LEDs, even if you combine multiple single-color lights in one package. All these will work with the dimmer controller. If you choose the RGB lights, you'll want to use the new RGB controller.
Wiring Instructions: These only draw 0.35A, so they can be run with a single relay, fuse, or switch. Multiple lights can be chained together in a single kit. Our rock light controller can handle 25A, so it would be possible to run more than 50 lights off a single controller. We don't recommend that many, though! Wiring is simple with a two-wire system. Check out this guide on how to wire a light bar for instructions and diagrams.
Black Oak LED Dimmer Controller
Connect all your rock lights to a single controller so you can easily switch them on and off, adjust their brightness, and change colors. This controller is strong, robust, and easy to wire up. There are multiple options here, with an RF remote control and sync ports with an RJ45 connection for more advanced configurations.
RF Frequency: 433.9MHz
Max Output Power: 300W(DC12V)/600W(DC24V)
Max Output Current: 25A
The controller body has two easy mounting points to attach. Simply drill holes where you want it, then screw the controller into place.
Wiring Instructions: The controller handles 25A and can produce 300W on 12V systems and 600W on 24V systems. This means a practical limit of about 30 LED rock lights per controller. That's a horrendous number, though. Most installations for cars, trucks, and ATVs are between 4 and 10 lights. Wiring can be done in sequence and a fuse and relay should be used when you combine multiple lights. Check out this guide on how to wire a light bar for instructions and diagrams.

Are rock lights a worthwhile investment?
Yes, they are! Your vehicle will look amazing with the underglow effect. Also, they add visibility and safety for working after dark, driving off-road, and even camping.
Will rock lights drain my battery?
Yes, but not by much. Calculate your drain rate by dividing your battery's amp hours (usually between 40-60 for standard car batteries) by the current being used. So, if you have four rock lights drawing 1.4 amps from a battery rated for 45 amp hours, it will go flat in about 32 hours. Of course, don't get stuck in the wilderness before testing this! Have a battery charger or friend's jumper cables ready and do a drain test on your own battery for more accurate results.
How many rock lights should I get?
We think four is a great number to start with. This puts one rock light in each of the wheel wells. Many people go on to put another light at the front and one more at the back. This will give you full visibility all around your vehicle.
