Backup Light Mounting

Alrighty guys since I can't find any threads about it I figured I'd start one. Where are your backup lights mounted to? I have a pair of 3 inch lights I wanted to mount through the holes on the receiver behind the bumper with some washers. I'm trying to get some ideas of brackets to make and incorporate the hitch into it so that the output is as unobstructed as possible.

I saw a pretty cool setup, with a set of dually lights hooked to the shock mounts...couldn't see them but still pretty out good light....I'd love to do something like that...don't want to be able to see them just want the light..

I was looking earlier and don't see how you would mount them on there unless you were to share it with the lower shock bolt, but I think it's way too big in diameter to fit dually type lights

Mine are not installed yet. I plan to mount them to te side of the receiver. There are already holes on the side of the receiver. I will post pictures once they are installed.
