If you're referring to the side-step lamps, then yes, they do, either on door open or activation of the cargo lamp dash switch.
The OE harness has a relay in it for the cargo lamps, not 100% sure why Nissan felt 2 small bulbs required a relay, but I would have added one anyway otherwise, never smart to overdraw a solid state module ( BCM ) w/o having any idea what current it was built to handle.
Came out great, went outside here in MD after it was dark and had a look, they throw a puddle at least 20 to 24" from the truck outward, and very nearly the full length of the entire cab step. Boss is very pleased. Especially since the whole kit was only $21.00 and I still have 1 x 5' strip left, it came with 3 and an in-line fuse holder w/ switch. They seem to be pretty high quality, majorly surprising at this price point. The outer sheathing is a soft waterproof silicone and they flex quite easily. They can be shorted but then you must reglue the cut end to reseal it. They claim to have 3M brand adhesive tape, we shall see. I girdled them with a few wire-ties at strategic points to bolster the adhesive.

I bought a set like this for the bed of my truck, with a shell. Really lights it up.

Awesome I bet that looks pretty good when lit. I used the same stuff in my truck bed, can’t beat the price!

@ 10,303 Miles. Just swapped a few OEM bulbs to LEDs:

Third Brake Light – (Diode Dynamics 194 HP3 LED Bulb Red), Cargo Lights – (Sylvania ZEVO 921), Brake Lights – (Sylvania ZEVO 3157R LED Red Bulb), Backup Lights – (Sylvania ZEVO 921), License Plate Lights – (Sylvania ZEVO 168).

I was surprised to see the gasket for the third brake light wasn't double-sided sticky - I had anticipated having to tear this one apart, so I had bought one in advance. Turns out I didn't need to use it after all.

Debating on whether or not it's worth replacing the incandescent bulbs with LEDs is worth the hassle of dealing with resistors to prevent potential hyperflashing.

I'm strongly considering that too, I have a tonneau cover as well, if I order one more kit then I'll have two extra's left over, which could be used somewhere else.

On sale again so picked up an AFE exhaust and intake. I had an Injen intake on previously but wanted more of an OEM look with just some added performance.
