Hook some fog lights up to a relay run of your reverse lights.

I mounted two tractor utility lights on the underside and they work just fine. The whole install took about 15 minutes and cost me 10 bucks.

Or do a Fire & Ice bar, then switch your reversers to LED's. :D

I used a couple of spare lights I has lying around. You, can use fog lamps, tractor lights or buy auxiliary back-up lamp kits.

I mounted a piece of “L” steel to the rear frame cross member and used the bolts protruding from the trailer hitch. I wired mine to a dash switch wired through a relay. I use them for hitching up my trailers and when I need more light backing up. You could also wire them thru a relay to work with your reverse lamps.

The lights I used are 55w each. Work pretty good in conjunction with the factory reverse lamps when backing up. With a tinted rear glass I won’t use any thing with less watts.

What Mazz Said

I am with Mazz. The White Night Backup Hitch Lights are a great solution. Especially if you have a hitch. I know that when I hook up to my trailer at night, a little extra light goes a long way. The light this system puts out is more tan enough to see what you are about to hit or run over. Overall, a great system, easy to install, and does not take away any ground clearance. Just what the doctor ordered (yesterday). :thatfunny

I have a pair of 100 watt oblong fog lights being frenched into a spare rear bumper as we speak. I had them originally fixed to either side of the receiver but having a rear camera there the light was too bright, putting them there is great, I can now see (when I temporarily fixed them) out the tinted rear or watch the screen. I have a camera in the front bumper too, it makes parking in tight spaces day or night easy now. The rear lights are on a wireless remote so in the dark you just hit the remote & ..................... daylight :)

I will put up some pics when I get it back.

I mounted a pair of Wal Mart specials to the brackets of my rear bumper...serves its purpose, lights up pretty well, and I have an aux. switch for it mounted in the dash, so I can use it to light up the back anytime, not just in reverse. 55 watt lamps, and a $20 mod. Not bad! :D
