    I just have cheap Amazon flush mount pods in my rear bumper and for what they are I'm fairly happy, I choose a flood pattern for mine. As we speak the only thing that concerns me like every cheap led is the build quality and life to them, so far they haven't had moisture inside and I even dunked them into deeper water a couple times but I guess we'll see how they hold up over time

    These are the ones I bought https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    When they do eventually give out(not much faith for the price I paid) I'll get some nicer Kodiak LED Flush mount pods

    Directed towards me? Looks like the amazon link I posted no longer sells the lights I had bought. So far mine are still holding up but next month I am replacing them for the nicer Kodiak flush mounts

    I was gonna add an aux reverse light, then decided to keep it simple and just get some nice bright LED bulbs for the factory reverse lights.

    I did the same thing, JDM LEDs on Amazon. So far they’ve been great!

    18 watt led Chinese lights from eBAy. I went with a flood/spot combo
    Would like to have flush mounted them but didn't have a good spot and didn't want to cut into the bumper.
    So far I have them wired into a switch in the dash on a curcuit that stays live when the vehicle is off.
    I paid less than $30 for the pair and couldn't be happier. They throw off tons of light.
    The plan is to tap into the reverse lights wire and have it trigger the relay but I'll have to wait until we come out of the deep freeze to get it done.
