Got a source for your lights?

Edit: "local trucker store" I missed that the first time...still haven't seen these before...but I like them since they have reverse lights built in

I hated the license plate door/spring. It was like a rat trap. I remounted the plate under the spare with a small led for a light.
Removed all the plate crap.
