Hitch Mount Back-Up / Aux Lights?

Recommended Posts

Soon2BV

Anyone have light mounted on their hitch for extra lighting when backing up / connecting / etc?  Are they wired in to your back up lights or on a switch?  Did you purchase a kit or make something? 

My truck has both the round and flat-5 connectors on it, so i have connectors available. 

E-Trailer has a few options, but they are $$.

I had this one for about 2 years.

Worked very well, I had it wired in so that I could either use the switch or have them go on when the truck was in reverse.

Two problems.  First, they did eventually fill with water (but they never did burst).  I ended up getting rid of them when I switched to an adjustable hitch, and I couldn't raise the hitch as high as I wanted.

I do miss having them.  I think my next one will be an LED light bar wired the same way this one was.

I've had this for a few years. Works great. Just plugs into round plug and is activated but being in reverse or you can also flip the switch and use it as a light if the car is parked or something.
