    i did with my 91,it worked but to much draw with 4 lights,better off using a simple bosch style switch off the reverse lights and run aux power feed back to the extra lights for the best results.

    I would have to agree with Chester on this one. Do yourself a favor and put a relay in that uses the stock reverse lights to turn on. Then run a main power line from the battery to the new lights. You don't want to ruin the stock lights in any way and this seems to be the most common way this mod is done here on the forums. Good luck if you try this!
