Default Reverse / aux light

Well, a couple of 2004 or so tail lights traveled 1/2 world from Clintons garange to mine.

My truck is a 96, so it has 3 bulb set up. The new ones are 2 bulb and I didnt want to drill them, so I had no reverse light )im actualy using the original reverse chamber as turn/hazards).
I really dont care (metal bumper) but sometimes at night and with tinted glases... it was a problem.

I decided to buy this aux lights (I dont remember the brand, but its american) to use it as reverse light.

I want to know your opinion; do you guys like it? shall i relocate it? I used an existing hole to mount this...







sorry for the dirt in the truck... on weekend shes taking a bath

Please gimme ideas if youre not satisfied with it :s

get another light for the other side, under the rear bumper. I've never been a fan of One light mounted on one side.

Yes it is!!! and the door is even smaller. Even though my grandfather used to park a 1969 F-100 here during years, together with a 1965 Impala. That was the initial problem, at night with tinted windows and a tight garage door, it was the perfect recipy for a disaster!!!!!!

Ill get the other light

Definitely get another one, it would look even better if they were smaller and not what appears to be a tractor utility light.

Oh and WHAT DIRT?!? haha
