Installed Some Backup Lights

Recommended Posts

To light my way down the ramp at night. Used 5/16 x 4" galvanized bolts and thru bolted the mounts I went overkill on the wire. I could have run a single wire from the brake solenoid to the lights and just tapped the negative off one of the taillights. Instead I ran 16/2 rubber insulated the entire run. Thankfully I was able to fish it thru the framerail relatively easy.

I like it. Have you had the opportunity to use them yet? Does it work well? I can always see my trailer cause it's lit up like a Christmas tree but often I can't see where everything else is in relation to it. That setup would solve that.

Just installed them today. I'll probably put them to use next weekend

They look nice, I'm thinking of doing the same thing. My trailer doesn't have them so I'm usually left with tapping the brakes to light up whatever is behind, but back up lights would work so much better.

Nice, take a pic of them in action next time your at the ramp.. Are they LED's?  I've been thinking about adding some lights under the rear bumper of my truck.

Been thinking about doing the same but how did you tap into your vehicle reverse system?

I tapped into the brake solenoid. If you have a 5 pin connector its the blue wire
