LED Reverse Lights

Just installed a pair of led slim work lights as reverse lights. Makes a world of difference when backing up at night. they really brighten things up. I will upload some night time pictures tonight. Let me know what you think.

I got these for cheap really good quality. All you have to do is relocate the trailer connector over a little and use some 90 deg. brackets to mount them to the underside of the bumper. I have wired up to a relay and tapped into the stock reverse light wire to switch it on.

Nice. Can you post a couple pictures of relays? I don't know much about auto wiring. I would like to hook it to one of my factory aux switch. Do I need a relay if I do that?

Thanks. I figured it out. I wanted to just wire it it the up fitter switch so I can turn them on whenever I need them.

It does help. I did it with my truck a few weeks ago.

I tinted my Windows last spring, ever since then I've wanted to install back up lights, just to give me more light. Those look nice. Might need to order 2 sets. One for the wife's jeep. She's been asking for some for years, probably a bad idea to install some on my truck without doing hers. . Lol
