    After being rear ended twice in a year, figured I would do something to catch a few eyes away from cell phone screens...

    OPT7 Redline Triple 48” light bar with amber turn signals

    Sylvania zevo red super bright leds with a strobe module.


    48" Redline TRIPLE LED Tailgate Light Bar w/ Sequential Amber Turn Signal - 788 LED Solid Beam - Weatherproof No Drill Install - Full Function Reverse Brake Running 2yr Warranty https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HUJY0AO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_JKRwAbQF1953V

    SYLVANIA ZEVO 194 T10 W5W Red LED Bulb, (Contains 1 Bulb) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CKQP4SO?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

    Update: after a few requests, see pic where I had to use a dremmel to create a little more space for the spare tire bar. I used touch up paint to finish the exposed metal.
