    Please recommend a white led I can temporarily mount to the back of my jeep ( I'll wire it and built the mount) so i can see while reversing at night. I'd like to temporarily mount it to my tire mounted bike rack which gives me about 10" ( wide) to play with. Which light do you recommend?

    Do you salt? If so, how about having the light on constantly so you can make sure your salt etc is coming out. This was my thinking.....so I am very interested in your responses.

    I have my lights mounted to my spreader and I use a 7 pin trailer plug to power them when in reverse. I also have it wired through the accesory wire on the plow to a switch on the dash for a salt light. These are both done through relays

    They do. They have a few different versions with more leds brighter. You get a complete harness relay fuse switch and waterproof connector to the lamps. They wont kill your battery either if you turn the engine off and leave the lights on. I also read they have a built in micro processor that senses if they are getting hot and will dim them slightly to avoid overheating.

    Here are a few vids.

    They are 1300 lumen, yet you claim they'll blow the 1400 lumen sound offs out of the water, not buying it one bit. And they're more expensive.
    I'll stick with Michigan made products that are high quality.
