Let's see your aftermarket reverse/backup lights

I'm looking for some aftermarket lights to throw on each side of the hitch to make it easier backing up in the dark, especially when hooking a trailer up. I'd love to see what you guys have done and list off what brand and wattage of lights you used. Also did you just run a toggle or integrate them with the reverse lights? I'm thinking it would be pretty sweet to wire them up so that they turn on when r is selected with a simple relay. Thanks guys.

I got some $30 rectangle lights from auto zone I use on my tractor that I'll be installing next to my hitch. I will post pics when I do it. in my head I think I have a plan that will let me hook them into the reverse lights AND be operated by a switch. Looking forward to ideas.

Wired mine with the upfitter switchs, I have an inline fuse for safety because the wires get a lot of kick up from water and what not. After having them installed for only a week water got in and kept shorting out one of the connections, drove me crazy...moral of story tape every connect goood! Used the stock holes in the bumper they work perfectly. Actually thinking about installing some on top of the cap for night work but i dont know if it will look good.
