These are on sale at HF for 7.99 right now. I'd recommend sealing them up with some silicone though.

There should be a hole in the bottom of the bumper already, use that.

Theres a lip right under the plate on the bumper that I mounted mine to, I think it looks clean. You can't even notice the holes if you were to move the lights later down the road.

Even if you seal the harbor frieghts lights, it may not matter. Mine still have water in them from Friday night when I got stuck in some ruts under water and they were submerged for a little while. I had completely sealed mine. I did blow both bulbs.
Since I took my hitch off and my spare tire out, I just mounted them in existing holes on the tire carrier. They never hit or dragged so I liked that but they sucked that water in. I am going to get a couple marine lights and that should take care of that.
I love having the rear lights. It really helps out at night when reversing or just lighting the way a little bit better for someone behind you.

Sure, does this help?




There's just 2 bolts on each light, the lip that pokes out from the bumper is just big enough to tuck them under there

I think they look good. I especially like the white truck in the snow.

Well Since I got water in my other aux rear lights, I decided to get smaller lights and mount them on top of the rear bumper with enough clearance to let tail gate down still. They swivel and can be pointed up or down. They were the cheap $16 platinum burners at Walmart but until I figure out where I will do the least damage to them, I'm not spending a lot of money on them. They are 55watt and light it up just fine for my purposes.

I should have turned the flash off for this pick with them on but oh well. Maybe tomorrow night.
