    Has anyone mounted any flush mount flood lights in the rear bumper? I'm thinking maybe the two red reflectors in each corner could possibly be removed and would be a good spot to mount them. Maybe something like these? https://www.rigidindustries.com/d-series-pro-flood-diffused-flush-mount-black-2-lights-212513.html

    for the sport S owners out there, those of you that already have your trucks, can you see anything behind the reflectors that would prevent you mounting there? is it backed by steel in that area or is it plastic that could be easily cut with a hole saw?

    Great, thanks for the pics. Hard to tell if those are flush or surface mounted, but at least it looks like I'm on the right track for a good location.

    Innovative Creations Inc (ICI) has Magnum Series Rear Bumpers that feature KC Hilites however I don't see that KC sells them separately. I really want a set to retro fit into my stock JT bumper but can't seem to find them anywhere. Here are the specs -

    • KC Branded and Backed

    The red reflector is a removable panel. It's held in from the back with three screws.

    I bought a set of the KC Backup Lights to mount in the rear. I found them on Amazon for $145. I went with some EAG Bumper mounts for $26. They fit great and go on easy. I just used a split washer and M10 nut to attach them to the lower bumper bolt. They hang down about an inch, and have three holes in them for attaching items.

    The description is a little misleading, but they clarify further down that it's only the brackets that are shipped.

    No white light emiting from rear of vehicle when driving. Some guys use 50in light bars for back up lights.
    When I do my rack I'll probably put a 10 or 20in single row on both sides and the back. I'll tie it's activation into the reverse as well.

    Yeah. Reverse lights are fine but a broken tail light where red lens is gone and white light is shining backwards is probably cause for a stop and a ticket.

    Here's a picture of the reflector from the back. There's just three small bolts holding it on. It has a hanger on the back that holds some of the wiring.

    cool, @Troybilt has a plan to make a bracket to attach a light to those mounting holes. This looks very do-able.
