    Hi,

    I'm looking for a hitch mounted LED light kit to help me see where I'm going in reverse. Something like this. Any recommendations?Untitled.jpg

    artesho, I did that already. Thanks. It's certainly better than stock.

    But I WANT MORE LIGHT!!! And I want to hook it all up to a switch on the dash so I can just use it when needed.

    And crackles, what does "Sub'd for interest" mean?

    I thought about doing the same thing with a Rhino tubular step. I have not done this yet to mine, but consider getting a receiver step and drilling your own mounting holes in it for the light brands you like. It will make a very strong light mount. I have a hitch on front and rear of my truck, so I could move the lights to either end of the truck as desired.

    There's a flush mounted rigid light that sits in the bumper you might like. I'll try to find a link to the thread.

    I like the Rigid flush mount option. And theft is an issue with the set up I posted. Just have to get the nerve to drill holes in the truck.

    Thanks,

    Very interested. I'll be home late tonight.

    Do the lights and related material come with instructions for setting it up without blowing up my truck??

    While I can't guarantee you won't blow it up, I'm pretty sure you'll be just fine if you follow our included directions and don't use an acetylene torch near your gas tank ;).

    Now on a less smart-ass note, here are the two sets of directions we include:
