WOW, bright! Do they come on when the truck goes in reverse, or wired separately on a switch, or both?
Wired them into the reverse circuit. Seems like work to have to remember to flip a switch lol
Ha. Well I suppose it could be handy once in a while to have the lights on WITHOUT the truck in reverse.
Yes but I had to have the most installed in an hour. No time for fancy wiring then. Later I'm going to change them up. Likely will get a better flood pattern and change the out later. These though have been awesome so far though

It's nice to see you working on your truck without snow as the primary background in your pictures. :rockon:

It is ridiculously awesome having the shop now. After so many years lying on my back in a snow suit (cause dodges always break when it's coldest out) finally can just coast around in a sweater. Have some tunes and NO WIND!!!!

Progress!!! The uprights are 5/16 steel and the eventual body will be 3/16. Lots to go but the uprights clear the grill when the hood opens. Barely. Winch has about an inch of clearance behind it before it contacts the ac condenser.

Well a long day of measuring amd making stuff up here's where we are at as of midnight!! Tomorrow I pretty much need my truck driveable so extra motivation. I'm just hoping this turns out decent. So far I'm pretty happy. For clarification i am mostly making this up as I go!
