    Picked up a light for our vbox buyers salt spreader. Have a good idea of where I am going to mount it. But wanted to see if you guys have any recommendations on where to mount it to light up the salt best. Pics would be great too.

    We put 2 lights on our vbox's. Both lights on the top of the hopper on either side so you can see your salt, plus helps with visibility when backing up when looking in driver side mirror as well as passenger mirror. Not sure how bright your light is, but this has worked for us.

    I like to put a set of stop/turn/tail lights on the back that are wired to plug in to the trailer connector. and two sets of tractor lights. One set comes on when the spinner is on and are aimed to the sides. The other set are backup lights. i'm looking for a pic and will post one when I find it.
