    My ideal placement is off a roll cage up high by the 3rd brake light. I'd even like the move the backup camera up there. WAAAYYY more useful in my opinion.

    I got you. I've got a mount I'm putting together that may be perfect for this.

    Damn I didn't see this post. My mount would be a little lower. Once I get it together I'll shoot you a pic

    Satoshi grill, BPF skidplate & recovery point, retro headlights, LED fogs & ditch lights, King remote resi with clickers (front), MaxTrac 4" spindles, vented/slotted brake discs, SCS matte dark bronze Ray10 17" wheels, Nitto Trail Grappler 34" tires, AllPro standard leafs, Icon remote resi shocks (rear), limo tint all around, JVC double DIN head unit, component speakers, 2 amps, 10" woofer in custom rear console box, air horn, Bestop Supertop
    The bezels for flush mount should have a bit of a lip on them, probably 1/2" that would cover up the hack job you'd do on the bumper hole. Also for mounting on tube racks these are stupid cheap/easy/stable (like my ex) https://www.amazon.com/GS-Bracket-O...qid=1486079997&sr=8-9&keywords=led+tube+mount if you flush mount yours just don't throw away the mounting bracket.

    I always thought mounting up by the 3rd brake light would be ideal for bed & reverse visibility, but the installs I've seen have not been pretty. Now that I have a Bestop that wouldn't work too well so tailgate bracket above the tail light will have to do. If you mounted it on the bed by the cab I think the shadows would be pretty bad directly behind the truck.

    You're a wizard I was gonna text you later tonight about getting together a few bed rail mounts for the lamps. Send what you have when you're ready. I'd also like to book coming out to look at the bumper.

    I'd augment it. Some up high for general viewing and some down in the tube bumper/tire carrier for the low viewing. Since I won't have the backup camera there it shouldn't matter much anyway. Combined output should be perfect.

    @digitaLbraVo Are you deciding on bed lights or reverse lights?
    I've been running just an extra set of nilight floods spliced into the reverse lights for awhile now. Works the ticket if you can figure a way to mount them.

    Precisely! I can't shake the feeling it's over priced though. :(
    A bit of both. I actually had planned my switches out for reverse lights to have a switch and "area lights" to have a switch. I'd piggy back bed lights likely to the area lights... Or add a switch somewhere. I was torn.

    I've gone away with the "area lights" plan right now. So bed/reverse lights make a bit more sense. Even tied into one switch. I go back and forth. On the bright side changing switches is just moving around the female spade connectors :laugh:

    Had a great time at the first pub meet in SD but my hotel fell blah blah blah. So I went to my folks in hemet by not before running half of bee canyon. Its fucked. So rugged, I actually had to go in 4 low in reverse. Be careful.

    Back to the pub meet, great friends and no shut talking. That's what's up. Nothing but love.

    Much appreciated. My plan was to hang back in sd at a hotel and go fishing on the New Seaforth but the reports didnt look too good with this cold onshore weather projected. I pounded plenty of water and took it easy all the way home. I was cool. Thanks again though. Respek!
