The right placement of each rock light is probably even more important than the size of the rock light kit you get!
Over the years I have had 4, 8, 12 and now currently 20 rock lights under my lifted Ram (see pic below)
And here’s what I have found to be the best spots to mount Rock Lights...
1. How Many Lights Do You Really Need?
This question is like asking somebody what size of lift to get, it depends on how extreme you want to be with it!
There is no one size fits all answer, however generally speaking if you want to get a kit that will cover as much area as possible with still spending under $300 then your answer is…
Wether you drive a truck, Jeep, or SUV the 12 Piece Rock lights will be able to provide you with a compete glow from front to back of the vehicle with practically no shadows at all! If Mounted Right!

2. Wheel Wells (Most Basic)
Often I will see folks get a 12 piece Rock lights kit and they will put either 2 or 3 in each wheel well / wheel arch & sometimes folks use up the entire 12 pod kit in just the wheel wells alone.
If you choose to install them ONLY in your wheel wells you are going to be leaving A LOT of shadows under the body of your vehicle so I highly suggest taking the following approach when installing your Rock lights kit
1-2 Per Wheel Well (12 Piece Kit)
Your going to be needing those extra pods in other areas of the vehicle to really set this thing off and make that UFO effect into a reality! ⚡️
This is a step that a lot of folks miss out on entirely when it comes to installing rock lights. I get if you have a brand new vehicle it can be scary to drill into it but hear me out here!
4- 6 Underbody (12 Piece Kit)
In the picture below I have marked out what I think is the absolute best spots for installing a 12 piece kit which involves putting.
1 Per Wheel Well (4 Total)
1 Under Body Aligned With Front & Back Doors (4 Total)
2 Past Rear Tires / Under Back Bumper (2 Total)
2 In Grille Shining Down / Under Front Bumper (2 Total)
8 Piece Rock Light Kit's I would suggest doing ⬇️
1 per wheel well & 4 under body aligned with front and back doors for the most complete glow!
If your worried or unsure how to mount underbody, checkout our Full Installation Breakdown to see how it's done.
The rubber mounting pads on the back of the pod will do a great job of protecting the holes made by the screws from taking on any water and rusting over time.
4.Going The Extra Mile
If your one of those guys who likes to go all out on something and really stand out FAR from what others are doing then then I’m sorry to say it but a single 12 piece kit ain’t going to cut it for you!
The unique thing about our Rock light kits is that you can use as many as you want all in sync, together!
Ex) One of our customers bought 4 x 12 piece kits and once they are installed onto his truck he was still able to simply pull up the app on his phone and his different colours while all 48 Rock lights turned to the selected colour in sync!
Here’s my top suggestion on how to install our popular but more savage 24 piece setup to really max out the rock light effect!
If you remember anything from reading this, just remember that installing rock lights both in the wheel wells AND the underbody of the vehicle is the major key to that WILD glow that will have everybody looking and talking about your truck when you roll by! 😎
Enjoy your kit and turn those heads baby!!!
