The Tressa MOD!!!

Okay Im guessin this has been done already but here is my spin on what Im callin the Tressa mod. Tressa is my 16 year old who informed me she couldnt see the rear tires at nite. Im not sure what the rear fenders cost and I could already hear the " well Dad I TOLD YOU I COULDNT SEE THE REAR SO ITS NOT MY FAULT!!!" so this is what I came up with...
I removed the front 2 lights that I didnt reeley think did much good any way, and that also opened up some air flow. I took the wiring for the lights and ran the power for the Tressa mod so u use the dash switch for on/off.
This is what I get at nite-
And ya I know somebodys gonna say something about rear facing driving lights but a cops gonna have to be lookin reel hard to notice these so Ill take my chance.
Well thats my first mod...so what do ya think?

They look good! Any reason you didn't wire them to come on with the reverse lights? Or did you want to be able to use them in drive also?
I don't think a cop would hassle you unless you leave them on while driving.

Ahh, ok. That makes sense, especially with the dually fenders. You're brave letting your 16Yo drive your truck. the majority of the 16Yo girls I know would never be allowed to sit in the driver seat with my truck in gear. The exception is my girlfriend, she pulls her dads 16 ft enclosed behind his cclb f350 like it's nothing.

If you are looking for some really bright reverse lights, they make a hid kit for the reverse light bulbs... I had some of my regular LEDs in there before and they are nothing compared to the hids, they are like $65 for the pair but are way brighter than the $40 Cree bulbs some people sell. Here is a picture of them in my buddies dodge. The good thing about these is that they are contained in your tail lights so unlike extra lights no need for more wiring,extra switches,lights to bash,etc

The 2 lights I removed were the dual 3x3 lights next to the plate. Never reeley thought they did too much good and they looked like they blocked alot of air flow.
Ill go out today and pull the end cap off and take a pic but reeley nuttin to show. the light wedge's itself in pretty tight and with a health dose of epoxy she aint goin nowere. We used this stuff to hold panels and lights together back when I drove trucks out of Michigan so it should hold up.
