If you haven't been stuck, you haven't tried hard enough

Get a rearview with the two lights on the bottom of it. You can get one at the junk yard. Many cars have them. I did it, and ran the wire down the side of the windshield. Bought some wire covering from Wally. Lights plus a bigger rearview.

look above at post #4907 : use a 2 inch round LED marker light, works great in the center cap of the spare tire.
