The VMP-FSD-2017 is constructed in Texas from durable aluminum for the frame, brackets and the mounting plate surface. This mounting plate has been designed for 2017 model year and newer Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 Super Duty aluminum body pickup trucks and offers operators a sturdy and reliable platform to deploy permanent mount lights of any type such as spotlights, strobes, beacons, hunting spotlights, signal lights, security lights and warning lights, on the top of their truck for optimal performance. The VMP-FSD-2017 is installed via the rear cab lights and has a weatherproof seal on the back side for secure, dry installation and protection against scrapes to the body of the truck. The mounting plate requires absolutely no drilling for installation and is powder coated for added durability, can support up to 20 lbs and is offered in a black, white, or grey finish. The VMP-FSD-2017 also features a windload okay for highway speeds. (User provided equipment may vary.)
Installation of Lights/Equipment: Prior to installing this mounting plate on a compatible truck, operators can decide where they want their permanent mount lights and other equipment to be mounted and drill the appropriate holes in the aluminum mounting plate. Once the holes are drilled, the light or other piece of equipment can be mounted to the plate. Then the entire assembly can be mounted to the truck via the third brake light as explained below.
Truck Installation: The VMP-FSD-2017 is easy to install and requires absolutely NO drilling to mount to the truck. This mounting plate installs via the 3rd brake light on 2017+ Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 Super Duty aluminum body pickup trucks between the body of the truck cab and the light. Operators simply remove their 3rd brake light, position the mounting plate bracket and reinstall the light through the bracket.
3rd Brake Light Camera Option
Having a reverse camera in the third 3rd brake light (NOT in the tailgate or bumper) will change the mounting bracket design. Those with a camera must choose the "camera" option in order to get the correct design. Please choose the appropriate option below.
*Please note that the VMP-FSD-2017 is designed for trucks with incandescent 3rd brake lights ONLY. Operators with LED 3rd brake lights will require the VMP-FSD-2017-LED. Incandescent mounting plates and LED mounting plates are NOT interchangeable.*
