Stealth Reverse Lights Mounted with pics

This was a MOD that I wanted to do on the new truck for a while now. For this install, I wanted to keep everything as stealth as possible. I had been keeping my eyes out the right set of lights for quite some time. My original plan was to run HIDs out the back (which I still want to), but in the interim these lights will fit the bill.

Ultra White 55w fogs with crystal rod lens (found at Autozone)



Pic of the light itself



This is where I mounted them (shown by the red circles). The lights were small enough to fit recessed between the hitch and the bumper....beam pattern was not affected in any way



...and this is how I wired them. Power from the battery through a 30amp relay. Primary trigger is the reverse wire which is found inside the frame (Black/green). Secondary trigger is Upfitter Switch #3 using a diode to prevent the backflow of current. (Upfitter #1 and #2 were already used for high idle, and undercarrage lights respectively):



Here is how they look lit up:




I'll get a day pic tomorrow showing the lights between the bumper and hitch. You cant even tell they are there unless they are on.

Holy Crup! I wasn't expecting that kind of light output from those little things. That's awesome. What'd those set you back if you don't mind me asking? Might be puttin a set on mine this weekend. Great mod! Thanks for the diagram, too.

Oh... you look like you're all done moddin the new truck. I think we should trade and you can start all over with mine... No? Ahh, worth a shot. I love it.

Bear Hunter, those are sweet! Is Ultra White the brand name? Do you have a part number? I don't have a local Autozone and the website wasn't a lot of help.

Thanks guys... lights cost around $36. The part number on the box is: UW3534. It did not come with a relay.

Here are the day pics...they are kind of tough to see:
