Bestat, do you still have this BU light installed? I'm hunting for something to show me the way in reverse. This looks good, but is it? Thanks!

If you order part #0004198, YOU CANT USE THE HITCH to tow. That sucks.
So if you order part #0004199, you need 3/4" clearance between hitch tube and bumper. My hitch tube is resting against the bottom of the bumper! This one won't work either.

I have the factory hitch. Is yours 3/4" from the bumper?
I guess a solution could be to put spacers on the hitch bolts, but that might have its own towing comprimises. That would also mean getting a shorter drop receiver so the trailer would remain level with the spacers installed.

Oh well, back to google...

I got a set at Autozone that can be mounted on the hitch or anywhere with a bolt also. I mounted mine on the bolts that hold the bumper on. You have to grind the bolt hole on the light brackets to a square to match the square head on the bolts. For that little amount of work and an outlay of $25 to $30, you get lights that work excellent and have a very wide dispersed light that allows you to see alot more that with just the stock backup lights.

The lights work so well and are so slim, that I recently purchased a second set and mounted one up behind the spare tire that shines down to light up the back 3-4' of the underneath of the truck. This works great when you have a flat on the road, for hooking up a trailer or tow strap or for night wheeling. I will enventually hook up the remaining light and maybe one more to light up the rest of the underneath for when I'm out at night off road to make sure I can clear obstacles I may encounter.

^^ Good work, sounds like you have some great idea's...

Anyway we could get you to post some pictures?

I'm concerned about them looking like an afterthought, the kit they are talking about above looks like it could have been factory, or at least they do in the pictures...

I believe Bestatchess has the same setup as I do as far as the backup lights. They set against the bumper almost like they came with the truck. As far as pics, I have a digicam on my phone that might get the job done.

EDIT - It was this guy not Bestatchess that had a similar setup. This guys hangs down about 3/4" to an 1". Mine are flush with the bottom of the bumper.
