Back up Lights

I would like to know if there is another backup light that will fit. I installed strobe lights. I went to put them in the backup light but they hit the light so I would like to know if anyone knows of a smaller light that will work in there.

Just install the strobe in the back up light bulb spot... then install some aftermarket back up lights..

Does the law in Mass say you have to have bulbs in there or just that you have to have back up lights?

Well, I searched google and had no luck finding the law. The lights dont come on tho when I put it in R, only by a toggle switch. Anyone know how I could make them come on when I put it in R, but not draw the power from the R circuit, and still be able to switch them on whenever I want? Sorry for the complicated question (or simple to some idno).. doesnt hurt to ask..

You need a ON-OFF-ON switch. You will have three connections on the switch, connect one to the reverse wire, one to a 12v source and the common to a relay powering the lights. The relay will get its power from wherever you connect it. The ON positions would be either a manual on from the 12v source, or from the reverse wire. Optionally, you could use a ON-ON switch, but the the lights would either be manually on or switched from the reverse wire with no off setting.
