Rear facing LED flood/light bar ideas

I'm looking for ideas for mounting either a couple LED flood lights or light bar on the rear of my rig. I'm open to any suggestions. I have already installed LED projector bulbs in the reverse lights, looking for a lot more light than that.

Pics, links, etc all appreciated, thanks.

Couple flush mount duallys in the bumper cover?

Those would look great on the back of my Jeep...

That's an option for sure.

Upon thinking about it, one thing that has me wondering though is the plastic shroud on our bumpers and if it might hose things up.

I have 2 Rigid Dually D2's in the diffused pattern on the back of my Rola. Sure makes it nice when backing up in a dark place, or hooking up a trailer or boat at night. I have pics in my build thread if interested. 4xguard also makes aux reverse light mounts now, you may want to check them out, nice idea for those without a roof rack. Here's a link: 4xGuard Aux Reverse Light Mounts

Those mounts look pretty slick, might have to try them out. I'd prefer to mount up high as anything bumper level or below tend to get beaten up during our long winters.

I saw someone on here install some flush mount Rigids on either side of the license plate in the rear. Looked pretty good to me

I'm wanting to get the 4xG mounts and want to rig up a relay so I dont have to flip a switch when I go into reverse, they auto come on when I go into reverse. I'm lazy like that.

This would be pretty easy to do using the feeds from the trailer harness. The hardest part will be to weatherproof the relay, or to find a good spot inside to tuck it in.

I have an 08 and mounted (2) chree LED's off the rack. Can be wired auto on when in reverse or manual on switch. Lights up nice and the LED's were like $30 but they are a quality light. If you want I'll post a pic. Used Mopar switches and the relay is mounted under the dash.

If you could post pics that would be great.
