I agree with you, I like the way yours look as well. Nice job. I had the square D series Rigid lights hanging off my shackles. They hung too low for my taste but your lower profile units don't look bad at all. Good choice.
I didn't want to cut into my bumper either but also wanted something different then what I see around Dallas. The flush mounts don't look too bad in my bumper and the light distribution is perfect...for me...

What are they? How are they with the backup camera ? Any washout?
Fcancer, in his signature I believe it says the brand and wattage they are. Not sure but his limited Graco car seat could be making these even brighter. ha ( I love that "mod")

Here is a before and after picture of the camera view with additional reverse lights. It doesn't washout the image at all in my opinion. It makes it where you can see much more clearly and see a much wider view of surrounding potential hazards.

Hey man, for the price you paid for yours even if they only last a 1/3 as long they are a great deal. I like Rigid and went with those but there are many brands like yours that put out excellent light. It doesn't matter what's shedding the light as long as they are shedding more light then the anemic factory bulbs.

And the only reason I'm able to afford the Rigid's is because I got rid of my "Graco" car seat about 12 years ago (my baby girl is 17).
Seriously, glad to see you have your priorities straight.....

BTW- I noticed you had the "Limited" Graco version car seat so you aint doing too bad. Back then all I could afford for my daughter was a orange 5 gal Home Depot bucket and some ratchet straps for her car seat.... and it sure in the heck wasn't inside a new F150. LOL
