    I have a set of Rigid Ignite flood and diffused lights for reverse. Got a good deal on them. Should have only used 1 set. They are super bright for a small light. Was really surprised.

    I put one Baja Design S2 flush mount into my bumper;

    I put it on it's own circuit but you could easily wire it into the reverse lights.

    I have a pair of Baja designs flush mount S2 PRO’s scene lights in my rear bumper. Tapped into the reverse lights but also connected to my spod so I can turn them on whenever. Really really bright light that makes backing up in pitch black darkness much easier. I also have one on either side of my roof rack for side lights

    Rigid flush mount. Wired to reverse lights. Comes in handy more times than I have counted.

    I wanted to buy these, but I've been told they tend to go out if you leave it in reverse for too long. I.E backing out of a trail

    I picked the combo yellow lens for both distance and close;
    https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/S2-Sport-LED-Driving-Combo-Amber-Flush-Mount.asp

    Someone did an install how to for the Rigids in that spot. I poked around up there and found where I wanted it. Template came with the light, drilled the corners and then used a dremel with a cutting bit to take out the rest. It's easy, protected, and very bright.

    I chose to wire mine on it's own switch - and not tied into the reverse lights. I figured that using it for hooking up the trailer in the dark, and getting out of the ski parking lot in the dark made more sense to keep it on. I also was wiring in the BD interior light into the bed so routing the harness went in together.
