I am considering putting some extra light either on my rear bumper or trailer that will give me better lighting for backing up at night. How many of all you guy have something like this? I just don't know how I would put them on or where. If anyone can help by explaining or sharing a pic I would greatly appreciate it!

I have rear work lights in my lightbar on the truck and I add reverse lights to all my trailers. The work lights on the truck are more for plowing and the reverse lights on the trailer give warning to other people I am backing up and also give just enough light when it is dark.

i you do put trailer lights on i would use led lights they draw less amps ,use at least 14ga wire and a circuit breaker inline would be nice . :usflag:

Get some good LED marker or running lights for your trailer works great. Those bumper lights are redneck backup lights.
