What are the lights for? Do you drive backwards or something.

rear lights are great. You may only use them once a year but when you need em, they are priceless. I got the oval 55 watt small lights from Walmart. They work perfect for what I need them for and I can angle them any way I want.

Seriously, clean your truck. I'm not crazy about the light in that location. They are kinda tacky imo.

i put a third light on it today i think it looks better then it did with two and it helps a whole lot having a light facing straight back.
