Yep, in the local one here (well about 40 miles away) they're right below the trailer wiring crap.

use a hole saw on a drill.

i haven't done 4" round tails but if the lights are 4" then you'll need a 4 1/2" hole i would think.... figure that out before you drop the money on a hole saw that's too small.

yea i didn't like how they looked with the 2" body lift so i cut them off



actually.... when doing the comp cut they had to go. when i build my new cage i'll work body mounts into my design. in the meantime it'll have to sit on the other 9 body mounts so far no problems missing those two. there is another about 6" from the rear in the middle...

Don't do a kit. Unless you want to pay a chit load for it. Check out raneys truck. They have a good selection of quality lights. All you need is the light a pigtail bitt connectors and a way to make a hole.

Depends on your states law for the amber blinker. You can get the LED tail light with integrated backup lights. Pretty simple and straight forward to wire up properly.

Your going to need an EL-12(I think that's right) electronic flasher for them to work. You can get it at auto zone.
