    I know that I am not the only guy plowing late at night in a tight lot with things that will mess up your bumper. Dark windows, toneau covers and quad cabs make it tought to see all of those nasty barriers, etc. So, here is a little rig that I had built up on an old hitch plug. Easy on and off when you are finished. Added flood lights for those dark corners. Wired to a seven wire plug, the large center pin is the backup lights on my Dodge so the come on everytime you put the truck into reverse. So far, works great. Just thought you may like this idea and make a unit for yourselves. Griz

    Thanks. It is kinda amazing what one thinks of after waking up at 2:00AM. I have about $90.00 in materials including the lights & plugs. About 2 hrs of fab time and I am not fast. Griz

    Every single person who owns a dodge has a quad cab with a solid body color cover on the bed:)

    Neat idea.. wonder how you could implement that with a salt spreader. I use pivot mounts to my hitch is free but damn hard to get to.

    Wow, I just wanted to post an idea I had that maybe would help others for their trucks. But the Bad Vibes about Dodges kinda makes me think we have a few a-holes aboard! I can only guess what they must be driving. Griz
