    I came acroos these and thought that they were really cool. No drilling and for $80 for the pair, they arn't that bad of a deal. I'm going to get a set once I figure out if I'm getting a new truck or not. I figured some of you guys would like these.

    It sure beats bolting it to your bumper. I wonder if it will fit all hitches ?

    You'd probably bend the bracket since hitting the lights is almost unavoidable. Ide prefer to have them on my bumper and just break the lights then to have them there and bend the sh*t out of an $80 set of brackets.

    edit...the site says $52 for the pair not $80, either way, i still wouldn't do it

    hmmm that looks pretty cool, they have some for the bumper of a dodge ram as well, too bad I already drilled some holes. Maybe when/if I break them, ill buy these brackets.

    I'd like to seem them mounted on a truck from behind and see how low they hang. I guess they arn't supposed to be any lower than the trailer hitch. I still think on top of the rear bumper or a headache rack is the best place to mount lights for plowing.

    I wonder how good this works. I looked at this last year but ended up buying the back up lights and bolting them to my bumper.

    I've thought about that night buster too. For the price it is probably worth a try, but you get what you pay for. I decided against becuase I would want back up lights for hooking up trailers and seeing that the night buster plugs int the trailer light package it wouldn't work for me.
