Where did you get your work lights for the back rack. Recently bought a back rack and can't find the right lights. How much did you also pay for them? Thanks

mine too, i park at our schools stadium down the street, easier to get out of there than it is getting out of the school in the afternoon.

Came in today with all the lights on, people just stopped and stared!! it was great!! love this truck..

..as ive told other people, i was way more excited about getting the lights and the plow on the truck than i was getting my license!! This is a dream come true for me, ever since i was 8 years old, ive wanted my own plow truck with lights and all, and now, it has come true. Thinking about it, really makes me think of all the good things that have happened to me doing this work and how forutnate i am to have understanding parents that are willing to let me re landscape the yard evertime i buy something new and big!! almost brings me to tears on how this is all happening, im loving it!!!

Looks good mike! Like the light bar. Nice truck too. There is a guy around here that has the same truck as you same color same everything beside the light on top and he hauls around 2 Dixie Choppers every time I see that truck go by I like there goes mike some day. Already got the truck looking nice and all set up right. Now get your self some GM Aluminum wheels to set it off real nice.

I bet he would never hold up in this type of work since it looks like that car was pretty much given to him. I have really never had anything given always had to work for it. There is 40 kids at my school who drive these nice SUVs and cars one of them has a 2007 Cadillac STS with at least 15 grand wheels on it.

I bet your right...

It was funny when I was in HS (just graduated in June of 06) they took pic's of my 2001 Chevy 2500HD with the plow on it and my F350 Dump truck and put it in the year book. Kinda funny.

Anyways, truck looks good. I should have my 06 2500Hd next month, I want to do the same kinda lighting setup

I graduated in June '06 as wel. The yearbook had a picture of my truck covered in snow with the lightbar on plowing the school parking lot on the title page for the student section. It was really cool. I helped the guys plow the lots. They had helped me a ton and they are friends of my dad's. Under the picture it read "... and you think you go to school early." I don't know who took the picture. It was 3:30 in the morning. I thought they would put one of the many BMWs in there if they were going to put a car in the yearbook. It is just one of those little things that let you know that there are people (school kids) that appreciate some of the hard work we all do. Make you heart feel all warm and tingly lol!

How do you like your Back Rack? I'm shopping them around as we speak. Where did you pick yours up and how much, if you don't mind me asking?

how difficul is it to run those lights onto the trailer hitch? i was wanting to do that with my trucks as well. Are they on a switch?
