you need to wash your floor.

Also, you COULD tie them into the back up lights. By using the back up light factory wiring as the 'switch' Just dont use the factory harness to power the extra lights, cause light output will suck and ull eventually burn out the harness (bad)

And that switch... seems like it could get easily knocked into the ON position blinding those behind you... maybe move it?

Othere than those few suggestions, it looks good! Now all you gotta do is wash your floor

You could wire it with a 3 position switch so you would have off, on with reverse lights, or on. That way you don't have to flick it every time at night, you can have them off in reverse in daytime, and also retain the ability to give a blast of light to tailgaters.

I got two questions...

1: Why do you still have your ball hitch on your bumper when you got a tow package?

2: Why did you put the lights right next to your reciever? So the lights don't stick down so far.

haha first what happened is its an aftermarket hitch...so lets just chalk that one up to sheer lazyness regarding the ball on my bumper. haha.

Second, underneath the bumper was two holes that had nothing taking them up and it was just pure convenience is why they are over there...ill probably try and move them closer to the hitch reciever at a later point in time.

The switch is actually pretty far out of the way...im a decently big guy so my seat is all the way back and my knee is no where near it so unless im crawling out the passenger side theres not really a chance i can think of to turn it on, on accident that is.


Thanks for the input guys! I appreciate it!

The function is good, but I'd rip them off in a heartbeat on a trail.
