aux. backup lights on. Pics

thanks to STL515273 for the idea. i used the same harbor freight lights he did and put some backup lights on my f150, and my dads 06 f150 also. heres some pics of mine. for power i used the backup lamp circuit for my camper plug. its a 20 amp fuse and these lights only pull 4-5 amps per light, so it should be plenty. ill get some lighted up pics tonight. enjoy/comment/discuss.

yea the looks not for everyone. on my dads we made some brackets and mounted them to the rear hanger of the leaf springs. kinda out of sight. BUT we are already looking at some better lights because these are kinda flimsy.

I have some sitting in my closet for the back of my truck, but haven't got around to putting them on yet. They will get mounted between the two tubes on my rear bumper so they don't hang down.

Looks good.

Did your hitch give you trouble? Or were you able to use the bolts that came with them

Could you just splice those into your reverse lights without using any relays or anything special?
