Rigid flush mounts. Learn from my and others mistakes, you get what you pay for. Skip the cheap LED's and replacement bulbs (their location sucks) and get some Rigids.

Those are the ones i have and so does FFBoomer.. However..my CREE reverse lights were not cheap...

The flush mounts put out a ton of light..

So far so good! I have no complaints and made my own harness. Soldered and heat shrunk everything and it's been good but time will tell, I still my pony up for rigid back ups. I love all my rigids I have now but just to have light in reverse I wasn't going to drop hundreds.

Eh, it's a couple small holes in a metal braket, clean it up and paint them and you're good to go!

I love people's reaction when I go into reverse, you can't see anything hanging down but it lights up the whole back of the truck! Lol

Oh c'mon, it was only like a hundo and a half. Not hundredS

All kidding aside, the Rigids are overkill, but worth every last dime. To each their own though.

Ahhhh see, this is the beauty of the switch.
Sitting at a stop light minding my own business, small ricer pulls up behind me and so close that I cannot see his roof, much less anything else on his purdy little ride. I love to flick the light from Auto to ON in this situation. If only I could see their face when those 1500 lumens come on.

I've seen people mount small light bars just below the license plate, i think the 6" ones.

Oh I know but I just dropped coin for two sets of duellys, one in flood and one in spot, And Bilinvic retro heads! It was going to be just a smidge hard to convince the wife I NEEDED to buy another $160 set just to see better in reverse.

Lol, mines 4 years old but still feels new but it is a little easier to drill in it.

I'm sure I'll get bored of these and do flush mounts like bucket did as that's what I originally wanted.
