Thanks for the pics Eric! I might have to use my hitch somehow to mount them to. Probably on the tie loops on each side of the receiver.

I really like the lights in the bumper, but I would definitely have to find a test bumper to work on...

You can't go wrong with the 20.00 ones from Wal-Mart. Just remember, the have a "fog", and a "driving" light. Get the driving light, it'll give you more light where you want it. Here's my set-up. Name:  0331.jpg

LMC truck sells a bumper with reverse lights already molded into it, but it's the older style bumper that I don't agree with for the newer trucks

Thats awesome! I want to do that..

You aren't going to get enough light out of one of those to do you any good.

I got some $20 driving lights from walmart. They are very bright and I just upgraded them to 100watt bulbs so they are even brighter now.

Best picture I have showing them.

You just have to be careful if you go down a seep incline wile off roading, that is if you do. I just broke the lens on both of them a couple days ago because I smacked them on the ground. If you have a hitch and mount them the same way then you will be fine though.

hooked up the plate light temporary to see how it works...if doesn't work to my liking going a similiar route...don't really off road backing into a snow bank by mistake probably my biggest concern for damage to them ( had to remove my plate guard for starters... not too enthused about that)

My RECON line of fire emits a noticable amount of light. I also installed the LED 3rd brake light, and when I reverse I open my rear slider and look out that way to reverse. Between the taillights, RECON, and LED 3rd brake light, I have more than enough light to reverse out of anywhere.

Reverse w/ cargo lights.

I tried changing bulbs as well, but honeslty, I didn't see a difference.

Maby its how you have it wired. It may also be the way the reflector is setup in the housing.
