I say A also, because it's unusual, and not in a similar location as the LED light bar. Since you're shaving the tailgate anyway, it wouldn't be too much more trouble to mold those in! Great choice, BTW!

I am leaning toward B, but if you get a or have a Line of fire too put it in A. A and a Line of fire would look best. I wouldn't do just A because all the brake light will be to high for little cars and they wil run into you and complain that they can't see your brake lights.

The smallest car I've been in puts your eye level at the top of the tailgate area...what are you talkin about? This would be blindingly obvious to those behind you in smaller sedans!
