Rigid LED Lights SRQ2 Diffused Flush mount bumper--WHERE TO MOUNT
 
So I have purchased a set of SRQ2 diffused and will be mounting them in my rear bumper. They are flush mount versions as don't won't anything hanging underneath my truck.

I currently have Dually's flood pattern and love then as reverse lights. However I'm looking to go diffused to disperse light to a more broad range verses the spots which do work but tend to be more focused.

Before I go hacking into my bumper I need all of your advice.
I have photoshopped 3 pictures of possible locations to mount them.
I'm looking for input as to what you guys think looks the best.

Option 1 pic is far outside above rear parking sensors. I like the idea as it spreads the lights to the edge of the truck more on both sides.

Option 2 pic is more centric between sensors and license plate. aesthetically this looks the most symmetrical.

Option 3 pic closer towards the center which may not light sides of truck in rear as much but is an option.

Please let me know if you were doing this where would you cut into your bumper and mount these.
With diffused it may not matter where in the rear bumper as both lights will probably cast pretty good light out back where I can see not only from my camera but also my side mirrors.

Lets vote and give any reason specific for why you chose a certain option.

Option #3 looks the best to me.

Thanks Slick!
They do look good pulled in towards the center a bit like option 3. I guess my thinking on pushing them to the outside is to have more side to side light in reverse.
I have never used the diffused version before but from what I understand they spread out very quick so it may not matter where they are physically located on the bumper.

Love those lights! If I were putting them on my truck Id put them in Spot #2!:thumbsup:

Thanks Todd!

I'm hoping I get more feedback to see where the majority think they look best.
I'm down to option 2 or 3 now, option 1 doesn't look natural over the sensors.

Appreciate the input.

I think option 3 looks the best!

I personally like number 2, I'm a symmetrical kind of guy. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the feedback guys.
So as of right now its tied, 3 votes for Option #2 and 3 votes for Option #3.

That's not making my mounting location decision any easier. ha ha
Well, I think it does say Option #1 is definitely out.

Count me for # 2
Nice looking ride Danny!

X2 for symmetry, I'd go with option 2. As you've already said, I think it will give you more useable light in your mirrors in that position as well.
