    Nice! Do you have your back-up lights on the back rack on a 3 way switch or just when they come on in reverse.

    If you put them on a three way switch, you can have them either "off" "on" or "on w/reverse" then you could shut 'em off completely when you get out of the truck for the night, and they won't come on when you unlock it (as courtesy lights) but when you get in to plow you can turn 'em on to "on w/reverse" and they will save a little battery. Or "on" you can get out of truck in park and see in the bed or behind you... just a thought... I had them that way on one of my previous trucks. The ones I have on this truck are just either on or off, because I didn't feel like messing with the extra effort of wiring for reverse function, but I may change that one day soon... Also it has a 100 amp alternator and dual batteries so i'm not that worried about battery drain really, will probably leave 'em on the whole time i'm in a dark lot pushing.

    Good luck this year.
