    saturday i got bored and figured i would try something. i mounted some 4" led backup light in the rear bumper on my truck. i have them wired into a 3 way toggle using a double relay to eather be on, or on with the reverse lights. all in all i think they turned out well.:D

    Looks great and very practical. Stock bumpers are worthless anyway... why not make them truly more functional? Excellent job!
