LED Reverse License Plate Light

Has anyone installed one of these on their Superduty? I think this would make a great reverse light. I am very interested in buying one of these, but I am not sure if there is enough room for the light in between the license plate and the bottom of the tailgate, also I do not want the tailgate to hit the light when you open the tailgate.

Looks pretty cool. You might want to contact them to get the dimensions of it so you can compare them with your license plate and the space above it before you buy it.

Alberta,

Can you send me some more pictures of the 12" Xmitter Low Pro? How did you mount yours? Did you have any issues with tailgate clearance? Thank you for the information.

Thanks,

Joe

It is kind of a tight fit to get the XMitter Low Pro in there. Hence the reason why it is mounted kind of low. The frame of the light on the bottom is flush with the top of the bumper and I angled it down slightly so that it would shine on the ground in the path of my backup camera. This gave me plenty of clearance without notching the bumper to open and close the tailgate and remove the tailgate without having to remove the light or having to fumble around with the tailgate when removing it. I wired it up along with the two Solstice Solo lights to my reverse lights. The other lightbars, the 8" Evo Prime bars, are wired to an aux switch. I wouldn't go any larger than a 12" model though because of the spare tire wind down thing. I'll get some more pictures for you tomorrow. Don't have any good closeups of the lightbar. As for mounting it, I fabbed up a bracket. I'll grab some pictures of that too. Basically, the brackets look like a "Z". Hard to explain what I did but hopefully, pictures will help you out.

Alberta,

Yes, if you could send me some additional pictures that would be great. I have an idea of what you did with the Z-Brackets but I would just like to make sure. I sent you a PM with my email address.

Thanks,

Joe

Still working on trying to grab those pictures for you. Rained again today. The XMitter Prime Low Pro will definitely fit though. I got mine in the widest pattern which helps to illuminate the area behind the backup camera. The 2" Solstice Solo lights are in a spot configuration so I can see what's behind me. The girlfriend's ranch has long and narrow stalls for trailer parking so it helps a lot with the spots at night.

Both of the 8" lightbars on. Don't have any with just the XMitter Prime and the Solstice Solo though but they are bright.
