Projector Back Up Lights

I'm looking to install these on one of the upfitters. I was looking for some advice on brand and also installation. I'm hoping I don't need to do any hole drilling. I've been looking at the Recon Brand, I just can't see how you would mount them. Thanks in advance.

Literally just posted these on another thread haha. They drill into rear bumper and wire to your upfitters and your reverse gear. Here's a pic of them mounted in my old bumper.

This is my truck. The two lightbars on the sides are controlled by an upfitter. The two near the hitch and the one above the tailgate are triggered by the reverse signal. They are all Vision X lights. The ones near the hitch are 10 watt Solstice Solo, the tailgate is a 12" XMitter Prime low profile, and the two on the outside are 8" Evo Prime single stacks.

This is my 06 f150. If you go the rout of getting a headache rack and rear replacement, I suggest getting the maxxima hybrid light. Bright as chit. I'm going to do the same to my 6.7 as soon as I can build a headache rack for it.

I went with the recon light. Claims to be submersible, but they both have condensation on the inside. Sent one back for replacement, and the same thing happened. They still work fine, but you can see moisture in there.

I'm thinking of buying Hella's pot string daytime driving lights for my rear bumper. They're one inch around and come in four, six and eight light strings. That way everything is flush and nothing is hang down.
