Rigid D2 Flush Mounts, rear bumper.

Well I'm set on installing a pair of these flush in the rear bumper, before I have it painted to match.

I'm posting because, I'd like to know if anyone else has done this in the rear bumper of an F250?

I was also wondering what people thought about the drive vs wide, or even flood, spot, or diffused.

I've already got the 20" bar in the front bumper, which I love.

I was thinking of getting an aftermarket bumper, but I think I actually like the OEM rear bumper when painted to match better. I also don't want to mess with the reliability of the rear sensors. It seems the aftermarket bumpers don't have a good area to stand on either when using the bed.

I'd like to see some pics if anyone else has done this!

EDIT: I was miss reading. Noticed the spot/flood is just the 4 LED version. So for the Dually D2 it's only driving/wide/diffused.

Talked to Rigid and they recommend diffused for the widest spread. I'm not sure If I'd like that, or the driving light. I'd be using it more for outdoor recreational use, then for a backup light.

Just ordered. Went with the driving lights. The diffused only got wider a few meters earlier, but lost over 150ft of distance.

so are you cutting and fitting lights into the bumper? I was thinking of mounting some flush with the hitch mount, dark as crap back there with limo tint on the window and stock backup lights.

Yup, I'm going to cut into the chrome portion of the rear bumper and mount one on each side. Comes with a nice rubber gasket, and then I'll be painting the bumper white to match the truck.

Something like this. I'm not sure what my exact placement will be yet.

IDK about mounting them on a truck but I have 2 of the Dually Floods on my wheeler and they will light up really bright for a LONG ways. I love them. I am thinking about putting 1 more on the back so I can see back there.

Very good idea. Here is another option, remove the center headrest, open the sliding power rear window and woohoo! Never gets dirty, hidden, cant be stolen.....
