Custom Truck Lighting for Gen3 Ford F-150 Raptors

The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor has a reputation as a powerful and versatile truck for those who want to drive off-road without compromising on payload, towing, comfort, or technology for daily use. The F-150 Raptor performs well as a family hauler or a work truck and its robust capabilities make it ideal for thrilling off-road adventures and demanding on-site tasks. In this post, we’ll review two recent Gen 3 Ford F-150 Raptor builds and explore how you can add custom truck lighting to a Ford F-150 Raptor to enhance job site safety and offroad performance.

Custom Truck Lighting Upgrades

You can add custom truck lighting to your vehicle in various ways to improve its versatility and functionality. Some different truck lighting options include flood or work lights, off-road lights, safety and emergency lights, or accent lights.

Flood & Work Lights

One of the most popular truck lighting upgrades is the addition of flood or work lights. These lights provide broad and intense light, illuminating a large area around a truck. Flood lights are perfect for worksites, camping trips, and other activities that require ample illumination. Whether you need to set up a campsite after dark, work on outdoor projects or need better visibility in low-light conditions, flood or work lighting upgrades can significantly enhance the functionality of any truck.

Off-Road Lighting

The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor is renowned for its offroad capabilities, and offroad lighting upgrades are a must for enthusiasts who love venturing off the beaten path. Offroad lights, such as light bars or pod lights, are designed to withstand rough terrains and harsh weather conditions. These powerful lights offer long-distance illumination. Off-road lighting upgrades enhance safety during nighttime off-roading adventures and add an even more rugged and assertive look to the F-150 Raptor.

Safety & Emergency Lights

Safety and emergency lighting upgrades are essential for those who use their trucks for professional purposes or require increased safety on the road. These lights include strobe lights, beacons, and lightbars which you might use on construction, law enforcement, or emergency response vehicles. Safety and emergency lighting upgrades ensure that the F-150 Raptor remains visible and alerts other drivers, enhancing safety during roadside work or emergencies. These lights prevent accidents and protect drivers and other road users.

Accent Lights

Accent lighting upgrades are an excellent way to add an extra touch of personalization and style to the Gen 3 Ford F-150 Raptor. These lighting enhancements create a unique ambiance and eye-catching appearance for the truck. LED strip lights, underbody lighting, and interior accent lighting are popular choices for accent lighting upgrades. Accent lighting enhances the truck’s aesthetics and make it easily identifiable and a standout presence on and off the road.

Enhancing Functionality & Versatility on your Gen 3 F-150 Raptor

Lighting upgrades for the Gen 3 Ford F-150 Raptor can significantly enhance its versatility and functionality. Flood or work lighting provides broad illumination for various tasks, while offroad lighting enhances visibility during adventurous journeys. Safety and emergency lighting upgrades offer increased protection for those using the truck for professional purposes. With various lighting options available, F-150 Raptor owners can customize their vehicles to suit their specific needs, whether for work, off-roading, or ensuring safety on the road.

We recently completed two different Gen 3 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor builds. Both builds feature custom truck lighting upgrades installed by Wicked Warnings.

2022 GEN 3 FORD RAPTOR 37 Construction Truck Strobe Lights

This 2022 Gen 3 Ford Raptor 37 features a construction truck strobe lights package. We installed two Auto Flasher Kits to strobe the fog lights and the front 5 amber DOT lights. We also installed two 3″ mpower strobe lights within the grille. The truck’s rear displays another Auto Flasher Kit on the factory reverse lights and a 3″ amber-white mpower underneath each tail light. We used the factory aux switches to control all the construction truck strobe lights throughout the truck.

The front of the truck features a 6 Light Gen3 Raptor LED Grille Bar Kit that we created just for this vehicle. The front also features the Diode Dynamics amber backlit C2 lights.

We installed our Wicked Warnings Auto Flasher Kits to strobe the 5 front amber DOT lights, the outer SS5 pro lights, the Rigid fog lights, and the backlighting on the C2 lights. We also installed four 3″ mpower strobe lights within the grille.

We used three more Auto Flasher Kits to strobe the factory reverse, tail, and rear fender lights. You can also see a pair of Diode Dynamics SS3 lights under the tailgate. We used the factory aux switches to control all the emergency lights throughout this Gen 3 Ford Raptor truck.

Overview of Diode Dynamics SS5 Pod Lights

While strobe lights focus on vehicle and work safety, Wicked Warnings offers various options for flood, scene, and offroad lighting. In one of our latest Raptor builds, we customized a light bar using Diode Dynamics SS5 pod lights to cater to the customer’s needs.

These offroad lights are designed for extreme durability and high performance, making them the perfect companion for the 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor during offroad excursions. The custom offroad bar design allows for seamless integration with the F-150 Raptor and offers a robust setup that can withstand the rigors of offroad terrain.

What are the Wicked Auto Flasher Kits & how do they work?

Wicked Warnings has been around since 2005 with stellar references and we have been using our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) module since early 2016 with zero reported vehicle failures. There is no known risk to using any factory lighting as flashers that we are aware of. Of course, all your factory lights will always revert to factory function when the strobes are not being used.

Many of our builds feature a combination of factory lighting as well as purpose-built emergency lights to create a more effective display, so we urge you to consider more than just factory strobe lighting on your build. We have many options available to supplement the factory lighting.

How does the Auto Flasher connect to my truck anyway?

We have 3 connection methods used in our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) kits. The way that we manipulate the factory lighting is through the wires. We DO NOT reprogram any of the computers. Everything we do is easily reversible, and any number of individual kits can be combined onto a single switch if desired. There is no single kit to flash all factory lights, as we must retain circuit individuality. The following three methods are used to interface with the factory wires.

  • Wire Cut: In certain lights, like the white cargo light by the third brake, the only way is to cut a single wire (at this time). We understand that some people are uncomfortable cutting wires and we are working hard to offer “cut-free” solutions as fast as we can. This is how some of the current website kits are sold. Sometimes, this is the only option to achieve the desired display.
  • Wire Swap NO CUT: This is by far our favorite solution and how most of the new generation kits will be made if possible. Wire Swap is how ALL the Headlight and Taillight kits are going to be made for the FORD and many GM trucks. We are working to update the current website options to this new “wire swap” kit and will continue noting any changes on the product online as they happen. It really is just as easy as swapping a wire. Again, the kits will have notes in the description stating which version they are. Click here to watch a video showing the Wire Swap method.
  • (NEW & COMING SOON) Plug N Play Extensions: Plug N Play extensions can be purchased for an extra cost. Please bear with us as these are all handmade and fairly difficult to source parts for. We have some availability and are waiting on some parts for others.

We hope this helps to answer any questions about our Auto Flasher Kits and hope you enjoy these products!
