    I have a long, curved driveway and when backing up at night while plowing, it is very hard to see behind me. On my previous truck, I had some small rectangular lights (purchased at Walmart) installed under my rear bumper. They worked Ok but I always wished I had something brighter. I have a new truck now and I am looking for some bright lights to put under the rear bumper. I would like to be able to turn them slightly outwards so that they illuminate to the side and rear. Any recommendations on what lights to purchase?????

    I have the GG304LED back-up buddy and have been very pleased. The lights them self are on a swivel type mount so you can angle them in/out or up/down.

    Hi Goldpro
    Yes there is discount on both, if you click on the down arrow where the price for the 35Watt Amber strobe is, the 50Watt Amber will be next, and all the other options. The discount is on all GG304 and GG304LED models.

    First thing: Dont waste your money on those lights from walmart!
    The best thing we have ever done was buy these lights. These are the same lights on John deere Combines. Yes for a pair its about $130 but they are the best We have ever used!

    I have fairly dark tinted front windows on the truck which, when up, make it tough to see without the aid of some good backup lights. Currently, I've got 2 35w utility lights hanging from the bottom of the bumper but I need more light. So, I really like the backup-buddy but need to know what the absolute brightest possible unit is....is the 50wLED brighter than the 50w regular? Can you go any brighter?

    I would love nothing more than to turn the area behind me into daylight but I do not want to mount lights all over the back of my truck, so the back-up buddy type system would work great.

    Take a look at the photo section from backup buddy. The 1350 lumen LED is insanely bright. I originally had the 280 and returned it. One because I found out I wasn't able to plow that season and 2, it just wasn't bright enough for me... It was more of a direct light to me then a flood light. Now that Gary has the 1350, I'm ordering again..
