That'* a really good idea. I've seen a few trucks around here with lights on the bottom of the bumper. I haven't seen any of them lit up in person, and I can't say I'd want to be behind them when they come on. lol

I remember reading about someone doing that on a forum somewhere. That would be an awesome sight

where did you get the bulbs for $2? ive been thinking about something low profile to light up the back when im hooking up or tying down the quads in the dark. those under bumper ones would be too low and i dont want one of those luggage rack things sticking up either.

I got them on eBay:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/300648564044?...84.m1439.l2649

They were 99 cents with 99 cent shipping when I ordered them. They arrived fairly quickly for something from Hong Kong. I got them in a little over two weeks.

I haven't seen them in the dark yet, but looking at the reflection in a window earlier, they look really good, and considerably brighter compared to the old bulbs.

its a good idea i had no idea these were cheap. my yukon uses 3156 bulbs check these out 24leds. then maybe a toggle so i can just flip them on when i need them.

Those are basically the same as what I have ordered for my DRL/turn signals.

I noticed tonight that my reverse lights don't really put out a lot more light than the old ones, it'* just that its whiter.

Have you thought about getting some narrow fog lights?
