    35 watt backups with the amber strobe. $219 I think, These are built like a tank and since its snowed I have backed it right into the snow bank, no worries just pulled the lites back out where I want them and the step is actually alot easier to use the a2" ball to get up in the bed of the truck.JMO but I think you'll be happy with anyone of them.

    How it works is you slide it into any 2" or 2 1/2" receiver, plug into your 7way on your truck. Thats it no wiring or tools needed. There are two 3 position switches on the back of the unit one powers the utility lights and one powers the strobe. Both the strobe and utility lights can be set to come on automatically in reverse or with your parking lights on can be set to stay on. Right now I leave mine in reverse mode so both come on automatically in reverse just because I feel when it is always in running mode people get lulled and don't pay attention to it, but when they get blasted with the light and strobe it seems to trigger them to pay attention. JMO.

    Hope this helps if you need anymore info let me know.
