Default Can anyone suggest a tailgate LED light bar?

Hello,

As the title states I'm in search of the LED light string that's mounted below the tailgate in the space between that & the bumper. I've tried searching the forums for related threads but it keeps bringing up Rigid lights or the front mounted LED lights in the grill. Any opinions, suggestions or problems welcome!

FYI- I do live in Iowa so I am wanting one that survives the seasonal elements. Thanks!

Running lights, left turn, right turn, and brakes only.

VLED makes the best rear light bar I have seen. Never heard of anyone having an issue with them. Probably the brightest one on the market. The bar is 60 inches and indicates braking , turning and running lights, but not reverse. No need to apply any external weather proofing as it is sealed from the factory. I have had it for over a year with no issues.

It can be hooked up via the four plug trailer connector or hard wired to the tail lights.

How much and where to buy? I went on their website and didn't see it as an option to purchase.
