Center Hole Third Brake Light

Is there a company that sells a 3rd brake light that fits in the center hole of the spare tire? I have gone to oversize tires and don't want to modify the stock 3rd light on my '03 Rubi.

Thanks, Ken

I just put in the Rock Hard 3rd brake light that i ordered from 4wd.com. Had to drill 2 tiny holes on the stock carrier and reused the factory ends on the wires. Took about 25 minutes to complete.

Just go to any auto parts store (Napa) or even Walmart to buy a light. The links above are just repackaged truck lights that have been marked up.
You can find them for even cheaper on Ebay..any 2" to 2 1/2" LED round marker light will work.

I've been considering doing this exact setup bit kind of want to build it myself. I haven't been able to find the grommet mounted leds locally. At least not in anywhere close to the right size. Any ideas?
