Reversing Lights

I launch my Bass boat before sun up or after sun down alot. I would like to throw some major light when I put it in R, and have the option just to turn it on.

I have seen the White Night system sold by Sears and others. Does anyone know a " higher end " one?

Thanks,

There is a led light bar called "Fire & Ice" from Recon. I have the White Night & the led bar. No problems illuminating the area behind my truck

Thanks Rick.

I am sure that the white night would be fine. Just looks a little plasticky. Was wondering if there was something that is built better.

Bear Hunter did an excellent job with his write-up! Thanks F250 for linking to that. I have been looking for a set of lights to put on my trailer, but I did not want to make it look like I had lights there. Those will work just fine...

I bought a set of thoes oval fog lights at Wal*Mart last year with the intention of mounting them on the rear for light. I just haven't gotten around to putting them on yet...

Here is another idea. http://www.defianttruckproducts.com/...rt.php?prt=120

When installed, they sit no lower than your trailer hitch.

The only issue with using it to back a boat down a ramp in the dark is the glare you will get off the boat hull. I put mine on the outside of the back bumper - there are holes there already so that I can light up the area outside the hull for better visability.

You hit the nail right on the head. That's what I found with my old F150. All I could see was the hull of the boat glaring back at me. Meatco1: those brackets are awsome. I'm going to have to pickup a set or build me a set of those!

When you can buy two of these brackes for less than $80.00, I'd rather just write the check. With the time saved from having to measure, cut, & weld, it's money well spent!


JMHO,


Richard

That's exactly what I was thinking Meatco. I just like the idea of not having to drill anything on the truck and they look good! I'd rather have a nice clean fit than something I try to hack together lol.

the lights will glare off the boat hull, but when you have a truck as big as bear hunters your not going to be able to see the boat anyway, so its all good!
