Default Mounting rear led lights??

Has anyone mounted led lights on the rear of your ranger? I ordered a light bar with two 4 inch cree lights and am wanting to mount the 4 inchers on the rear. Preferably under rear bumper on each side of hitch? If anyone has done this or mounted on rear anywere please throw me some ideas and pics. Thanks

If you dont go off road anywhere outside of some fire or back roads you might be fine incorporating some aluminum/Steel angle stock and creating a bracket for a light adding a backstop behind it to protect it some. However, keep in mind any departure angle whether in forward or reverse could catch on them possibly if you've ever dragged your hitch receiver before.

Something I did for temporary purposes was a single flush mounted cube on the passenger side. In process of designing a rear bumper multi carrier so a pair of lights will be massaged in as needed.

I can activate them by putting the truck in Reverse, manually turning them on/and or off as needed.

Looks good! I ended up using the 2 holes on the end of the bumper mounts and mounted 2 four inch cree lights and it turned out great! Similar to yours except mine are mounted below my bumper spread out. Not wired into my reverse lights. Didnt wanna di that. Just used separate wiring with a relay and toggle switch so i can turn on manually whenever i want. And yea i camp and ride atvs alot and hunt also so theyll come in handy
