    There are reverse lights here http://www.retro-solutions.net/

    They are very bright and not too bad on the wallet. Plug and play led lights. Just search for your type.

    I got an $18 pair of lights from Wal-Mart, mounted them to magnets then wired them to a seven prong plug. I stick 'em to my bumper/hitch frame and plug 'em in. Summer time they sit on a shelf.

    They look great!! White light is far better then the yellowish colour your rack lights shine.

    The pics show how to do it as well if anyone decides to put the same lights in.

    I give you 2 Thumbs Up and a :salute:

    I bought rubber mounted amber fog lights from NAPA and mounted them on a bracket that goes on the hitch in winter. I like the amber light when it's snowing hard.

    Awesome light..Thumbs Up

    Agree they are not "cheap" but well worth every penny.
    I just dont understand the word cheap. This is a piece of equipment used on a vehicle some make a living with.

    Buy once cry once. I have alot of expensive hobbies. over the years you learn a lot . Do it right or dont do it. Dont mean to offend anyone at all. Just never understood why some people use garbage.
