Rear facing lights

Looking to replace my rear work/flood light with something better. I would like to see what you are using to light up the area behind your jeep. Looking to light up behind the jeep when backing up and setting up camp at night.


I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

Mine..




Definitely does the job. I'll be swapping in a 40" bar as soon as my new mounting brackets arrive from some friends in Banning, CA.

For most, it's overkill. Comes with the territory for me.

4" LED backup lights. Obviously not as bright as a bar or pod but they're pretty damn bright. Currently reworking them to include reverse function, on function and strobe function.

Strobe? You throwing parking lot raves? You could help out these poor fools tripping balls in the Mimi's parking lot

No, I'm doing it for the same reason DJFLYY did his, roadside breakdowns, either for others or myself. My rig is broken down as much as it is on the road.

Would wiring it into the hazards do the same thing? Its a good idea.

They would just blink with the hazards. I'm probably going to wire in a resistor on the strobe circuit as they're probably too bright to run as is.
