Back up lights?

Hey Guys- I just installed some LED flush mount lights. I couldn't find any flush mount clear back up lights at any of my car stores in town though? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

6" oval lights

2" round lights

BOTH would be able to flush mount! I'm planning on doing one of these by the end of the month

If you're not dead set on flush mounting...
you might give these a shot.



I mounted two 55w KC back-up lights on my rear bumper.
EXCELLENT!
My windows are all Limo, and I can STILL see everything with these.
At $65, they're a great value.

I've got a set of the oval LED lights. I installed one of them in the custom 1/4" thick rear crossmember. It took forever for me to hole saw and grind through that crossmember for the one reverse light that I never went back to do the other. But its one of the trickest looking reverse lights you'll find on the trail

Just remember that you can't wire any thing that draws more than the oem reverse light without adding larger wiring and a proper sized fuse w/relay and get away with it for long.

I know I may be late with this but... I picked up some livewell lights that flush mount in a boat livewell. they are 1.25 dia. led. drilled them into the rear bumper and they look really sweet. I'll try to remember to snap some pics.

BassPro Shop, If I remember correctly they were about 20.00 each. the nice thing about them is they are totally sealed units. the not so nice thing is if you are wanting to really SEE behind you they don't "reach" very far.
