    I found this on ebay, of all the ones I have seen this one looks to be very well built. I ask the seller if there was a buy it now price, he said $150 shipped. I'm going to buy it but i was wondering if anyone else has one already? If so have you found any problems? the only thing that i am going to add is a switch so that i can turn them on or off when i want.

    I like that this one has a 3rd brake light in it, the only thing i don't like about this style is i can't use my hitch for anything else while i'm using it. I thought i saw one last year that would allow you to still use the hitch, the only one i found like that this year is made of plastic.

    you could make one of these your self for under 50 bucks. you wouldnt have to add a switch thought as it would come on right when you go into reverse

    I said screw it and made my own. Went to harbor freight and bought a hitch insert and mounted 2 lights to it then wired a plug to the lights and wired a plug to the truck reverse lights. So when I dont want to use it just take it out and when I do put it in just like a normal receiver and plug and go. think it cost me like $30 tops

    Wow, What a rip off. I doubt there is 12 bucks in steel in that thing. The lights, plug and wires are probably 50 bucks.

    X2, but check out past auctions, one went for $150, another for $160!!!!

    I should make some to sell, haha. I am unfamiliar with the 7 plug harness, I guess it has a reverse lead? :confused:
