LED reverse/work light install

Thought I would share...
36 watt CREE LED 7" Bars mounted to tabs, welded to the hitch frame. They are wired to come on every time its in reverse or I can manually switch them on.

Looks good. Those lights are bright. Can you post brand and part numbers for relay and leds. I have extra backup lights but there not led and only work on reverse. Thanks

^link to the LED lights. The relay that you need is a single post dual throw automotive relay 30 amp is usually the norm for them. You can buy them online or at pretty much any auto store, i got mine from napa. One of the pictures is a horribly drawn out diagram of the wiring... Reverse light wire on the truck is black with pink tracer. The trailer AUX power is what I used to power them when I am in reverse since thats a 15 amp circuit and my trailer doesnt have reverse lights... That wire is the center pin on the rv plug, I believe its black with green tracer.

I was actually just buying parts to do this also. I was going to use 18W LED work spots. I wanted to wire up a 3 way switch, so I could have "ON" / "ON w/ Reverse" / "OFF"
