Take a 6" x 1.5" or wider piece of 1/8" sttap or thicker, drill a 1/2" hole at one end and a 3/8" hole at the other for a bracket. Remove the outer lower bumper nut (18mm head) and bolt the 1/2" hole end to the bumper and then bolt the lamp to the 3/8" hole end. Run the lamp power leads to the trailer plug area and splice to the light green wire (Dark green is rght turn) and bolt the lamp ground to body or bumper.
By mounting to a 6" plate and angling it with the bumper brace, the lamps stay out of harms way. 4 amp apiece and I've never had a problem running both lamps on the stock light green wire and fuse. And for the best lighting, angle each lamp 30degrees outward.
These lamps are the finest I've ever used, for $25 or ten times more. They are definitely industrial, durable and bright.
i have a set on both of my trucks. i got the kit from KC Hilites. they are "series 26" lights and come with all of the wiring as well. here is the link to it. http://www.kchilites.com/2x6-Back-Up-Flood-LightsbrSystem-517-P1C26.aspx i have 20% tint on my front windows with 5% over factory on the 3 rear windows of my 04 and dont have trouble seeing with them. big differance between stock and having them on.
