Project S71 2021 Chevy Silverado Overland Build, Episode 5: Bolting-On Some LED Off-Road Lights & a Light Bar

After installing a suspension lift, bigger wheels and tires, and some vital trail armor, the Summit Racing Project S71 Chevy Silverado is well on its way to becoming a serious off-road overlanding rig. And now the build team is focusing (pun intended!) its attention to lighting.

Proper lighting is a key part of any off-road rig, and Project S71 is no different. It now benefits from handy LED light pods in its front bumper, accompanied by a massive light bar front and center.

But what’s really neat is the wireless switch unit the Summit Racing folks installed to control it all—not only did it make the install a breeze, it gave them the ability to control Project S71’s lights from a smartphone. Watch the install video above and see how it all works out. And you can get precise details on the parts used in this video below:
