Default New hitch reciever and aux lights.

Yea, i ordered my receiver on Wednesday and got it Thursday surprisingly. And very simple to put on, took me about 20 minutes.


And then today I got some sheet metal from the store and put on my aux lights.




Right now i have the Xenon bulbs in them, I would have a picture but my phone being retarded doesnt like to save them after i take it.....

On a random note, this is a real Land Rover. This guy lives around the block from me, hes got 2 of these.


EDIT: I just went outside and took pics with the xenon bulbs. Bright as Shi-!

looks great!!

brett, if you're considering aux backup lights might i recommend stashing them further up under the truck to keep them out of sight until needed? lowered/street trucks dont look good with random lights hanging off the back.

any chance you have pictures of the actual mounts for the lights? i want to do the exact same thing, but I'm not sure how to get the lights to hang on to the receiver like that.

those old rovers are really cool, theres a blue one by me that I see sometimes.

Hell i have a friend who mounted them on his frame rails, had them angled so they lit up the back of the truck perfectly, but then again, his was stock height, might be kinda hard on a lowered.

And im thinking of doing a little nightshade on the lights tomorrow, make them blend in a bit better.
