Backup lights and polished rims

So went to Harbor Freight today and picked up some 9 dollar lights (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=37349) and put them on tonight. Also polished my rims which were in dire need of it, they were nasty. 0000 steel wool and mothers polish and they turned out incredible.

Just the lights on, these suckers are bright:

All my lights on:

Overall I love these things, for how much I paid and how bright they are I give them a 8/10 on the useful factor. I live down a pretty good length gravel driveway thats not lite at night so these make backing down it so much easier.

Wheels looks a ton better! I have thought about putting some back up lights on my truck. I used to live in a dark area at night and I could barely see behind me, but now I have lights around the driveway so I'm good.

After adding 2 on mine I feel like throwing more on there, if we ever get those windows tinted maybe it'll be worth it!
