    Looks great OP, great job. I went with the Rigid Ignites in the black part of the rear bumper, wired into the factory back up lights; I love them. Added back up lights are helpful every day, not just for the trail.

    Pretty hard, no way to hold backup on the mountong nuts, the boots on both side of the light goes through a hole you drill beside the opening for the light. Not accessable from behind the bumper like 2nd gen, had to drill a hole in plastic part to pass wires through

    Seriously not as hard as you would think. Pop a couple clips out, and pull the caps off. Literally takes 2 min per side.

    They’re smaller holes though, and they have some tabs I imagine engage the sensor, so I used a dremel to remove those, then used some sand paper wrapped around a funnel actually, till the lens clicked in

    I have no idea how he did it. I’d of gone about it completely different had there not been an existing hole. Just got the idea from his pictures.

    Damm, not bad..... and then there were the Ridgid lights at $130. Not to bad for a nice clean look. Post up some photos when it's done.
