I would find the light first then figure out how big a hole you need not cut a hole and then try and find a light.

1jeeplvr - Find the light that suits the kind of driving you'll be doing. For a bumper, you may want fog lights or driving lights or flood lights. There's lots of options. Decide how you'll use them and we'll make recommendations based on that.

Not sure you read his entire post. The kind of driving he will be doing is in reverse.

He wants lights in the rear bumper.
