New backup lights

I had a little time, so I thought I'd make my backup camera work a little better at night and add some lights similar to the other install posted here. I found this kit at Meijer (a dept store like Walmart) for about 20 bucks. They're 55 watt flood lights. It comes with L brackets that strap around the hitch tubing. I modified it a little bit to hide the brackets.

It made a HUGE difference in the backup camera. It looks like daylight for about 100 feet around the truck now. With the top I just got, I use the backup camera exclusively. The rear view is pretty useless.

It took probably 2 hours total. This mod is definitely worth doing for the time and money it takes.
