Did you just splice off it or cut bulb connector off ?
Thanks ...

I was going to go with diffused but I have an OR fab tire carrier and can mount so it sticks out past the bumper and would cut off a lot of the light from a diffused dually. I needed more throw as well as light to the right/left.

attached is the spec's for the 3 lights, if a "wider Beam" is what you are looking for then the Diffused are clearly what you want. as for tire carrier blocking the light, I to am packing a big meat on the rear bumper and I was concerned about it blocking light also but as you can see from the picture posted earlier it did not effect the lighting behind me.

when you are backing up you want to be "Lighting up the ground" and the immediate area around you. as I was told from rigid when I bought these "you are not driving 60 mph in reverse, you do not need to light up 300' behind you, you need to see clearly all around you 25-50' "

look at the spec sheets, and buy what you need to accomplish your reverse driving needs. And if your still unsure call rigid 480-655-0100

and here is the link to the full spec sheet http://www.rigidindustries.com/v/rig...int/dually.pdf

And this only the diffused back up lights on, no other artificial lighting.

Backup light help

Im planning on getting a set of rigid dually flush mount led lights to put on my rear bumper so I can actually see when I back up at night. What would be the best option to get for this specific application?

1) Diffused

2) Flood

3) Spot
