    I did a bit of searching and couldn't find anything that did not include a hard tonneau...

    I would like to install 2 lights behind the cab, level to or maybe 3-6 inches above the bed, facing towards the rear. I have a access roll up soft tonneau (not gonna get rid of it). I would like the light output to be enough to see whats behind me for maybe 200 feet maximum when i flip the light switch on for them.

    I hope some of you can help me.

    Thanks much!

    Can't tell you how to mount them above the bed, but mine are mounted under the rear bumper and have been very effective there. Unless you are a serious wheeler you won't hit them on anything.
