    Bought this light bar from a local guy a couple years ago - works great. I'm mulling switching out the work lamps for some LED work lamps this year though as the cheap carparts rubber housing work lamps, though they work well, could be brighter and throw a better pattern. The arm folds down out of the way to open the tailgait. It's just plugged into the trailer plug, and I have threatened to hook up a relay but haven't yet and haven't had any issues.

    Theres a new product I checked out at a Snow and Ice show here in Mass. Its called Back-Up Buddy.
    You can check it out @ backupbuddy.com or google it. It mounts to your reciever hitch and plugs in to your trailer light socket. Pretty cool set up.

    I have one and love it. They are a sponsor or at least used to be. I'll be ordering another.

    i never did post a pic of mine, what kind of truck? i have a 98 silverado (ecsb) and it has a factory trailer hitch on it, which hangs down a bit from under the bumper. so i took two cheapo 55watt lights from meijer, they are rectangular and about 1"tall, 4-6" wide, and mounted them in between the reciever and bumper. cant even see them standing behind it, and they flood out great. i will try to take or find a pic
