Additional back-up light ideas

Hey guys, I'm looking for more ideas on mounted back up lights. Probably under the bumper and something slim.
I have the 7 watt 921 backup bulb in my 08 tails. But just want more, and probably something that can be turned on separately.
So what do ya got guys?

I would use a rigid industries Single Row Light. They make them in a bunch of different sizes and they are pretty slim. I have even seen them mounted between the tailgate and bumper.

PM Me for info.

Re: Additional back-up light ideas

these are 55W lights hooked though a 30A relay. they work in reverse or off of a switch...they light up like low beam head lights..there small so can be hidden out of reach of snow banks when plowing or parking..

I saw on one of the forums a guy had cut the bulb sockets out of a pair of old OEM fog lights and then cut out the reverse light sockets in his tail lights then epoxy the fog light sockets into the tail lights. He had night time before and after pictures with his reverse lights on and MAN were those bright!!

The easy way to do is would be to use a SPDT switch or a DPDT switch. You would only need the DPDT switch if you wanted the switch to light up in both settings. In one position, the lights would come on when the truck was in reverse and the other position would be on manually when you wanted plus an off position for both settings.
