    Search the threads

    There have been several recent threads on this subject. You'll need some tabs with holes in them to mount the lights. You can ground to the rack, if it's bolted to the top rail of the bed. Then you need a hot source. Some guys use halogen fog lights from Autozone or Walmart, some use farm tractor work lights. Some run a switch and a relay from the backup lights. Mine are just switched manually, as I use them for work lights and lighting up my truck bed.

    I've been there - this came with an AWDirect switch panel. This lightbar is no longer made, and I haven't found any on eBay or at any of the strobe distributors. No luck at the Code 3 website, either.

    Goto walmart autozone etc. Either the work lights or like I did. I got a set of bright fog type lights (55 watt) and mounted to the rear. Hooked to reverse electrical. They are fully anglable etc.
