There is no way in hell I am paying not even 50 bucks for a hitch light assembly. My buddy gave me these lights (free) and I had this scrap lying around. Made some tabs to "recess" the lights back a little and tigged them on. I will be making a protector for them as well. This also protects my trailer plug. It also will act as a step. I might put some parking lights on it as well if I can find them in my boxes of lights. I know these will eventually get smashed but hey they were free. I want to run a relay for the reverse lights though.

i hear this.....home fab all the way
I saw your vid about the 7 pin charge wire harness. My 02 250 Superduty is a gas motor. So can I still use the "charge" wire for the relay main power in.
Thanks.

Beautiful welds, is that TIG?

I would like to get a tig welder sometime. I currently have an old Craftsman 220V AC arc, Millermatic 212 Mig, and Hypertherm PowerMax 30 plasma cutter.
Yes it is tig. Done with a Miller Dynasty 300DX machine.

what relay you using
I think I got a 30 AMP bosch style laying around somewhere. I am going to wire it like Dissociative's video shows how. He posted it on this site somewhere.

Nice fab work. How about some protection around the lights just incase you back into a snowbank :dizzy:
Not done yet. In my original post I stated I will be making a protector. Did some more today. I did a full weld on it. I also found a GM LED third brake light I had laying around. I might put it below the lights on the protector "strap" I make. Does anyone know if the (BR) in the 7 pin connector supplies 12volts when the brake pedal is pressed. Or is this (BR) just for a brake controller to the trailer brakes where different voltage is applied from the brake controller to the trailer brakes. If so, then I will not run the LED brake light. I might just put some recessed LED lights in there. Next up wiring and paint.

TJS I like what you are doing!! I recently put auxillary reverse lights on my HD, and I don't like where I placed them (on the bumper, near license plate). I was thinking about making up a hitch style assembly, and now seeing yours it makes me want to do it more. When you are done, send me some pictures.
