IGuys here is my led rock lights I am using for reverse. They are bright as all get out! I'm thrilled with them. I ordered them from Steve @ http://www.sneveysoffroad.com

They are extremely durable maybe bullet proof lol.

Here is what they look like


Well first things first you have to
Pull the spare tire to get to the lumps of wire.


than pull taillights
and look at the reverse wire.
Should have 2x black one green.

green is power.

Now.. Get under truck find these two clips.. Ones blue ones grey.

blue is driver side and grey is pass side.
Locate the bright green wire and pull some slack..


For ground i used the bracket.. Where i tapped into the hitch receiver with a small punch to make a dent than drilled... And a self tapping screw.


Now where i marked the receiver


Another shot


I used red tap cons and extra wire and some loom and tapped into light green wire (power)

Note i used black paint on the bolts on right to compare... Much cleaner looking


Side view

And here is them lit


Lighting up the garage with door open



Very very easy install. Hope this helps yall. Will be adding night shots tonight.

And adding my led bar on tomorrow!!

If interested give Steve a shout. My opinion the extra light is needed and those bulbs ppl have been adding in taillights assembly do nothing compared to these!


4:57pm

Need to aim


Look at my buddies truck

Side shot phone camera isnt to great at night

I did something like this on my 2011 F150. I wired the reverse lamps on a switch tho so I could control them. Helped to flash those annoying tailgaters.

Very nice.  I had aux lights under my rear bumper on my 99 with a separate switch.  Of course that was before leds came out, but they were definitely helpful.
