Mine is the Smittybilt CRES (Cargo REstraint System). You can pick one up brand new for about $100.

Here's a couple more pics.

I am wanting to get these lights. What else will i need to get or make or do to have these be legal??

Anyones help is greatly noted!

This is what i want:
I was wanting the flush mount too but didnt want to have to add a seperate pair of reverse lights. So these are what I ended up with. They arent flush mount but only stick out about a 1/2".

Installed my new SRC bumper. Xmas present from my girlfriend. Also installed my new soft top from my parents. Put a fire extinguisher in the jeep and cup holders in the rear and led lights that wrap around the roll bars for lights inside at night.
