    What’s up everyone? I should be getting my new rear bumper in about a month and am wanting to install the lights on it myself. I’d like to wire them to a switch I stead of the reverse lights. Is this something I can DIY or should I take it to a professional? I’ve been searching posts and am seeing a lot of diagrams that I can’t make heads or tails of.

    You should be fine DIY.
    They wire the same as any ditch light and any other mounted led light bar. You might need to cut and splice extensions due to the length of where they are mounted to the front engine bay to get power from the battery, and run the switch into the cab. I don't know all of the lights out there and how long the wires or for every brand so something to look in to.
