Has a 30 day no questions asked money back warranty. Here is a video that explains how to wire a trailer plug. Never have to worry about ripping them off as they are flush mounted! I yell every time i go to back up at night because there is horrible lighting on a 60k truck!! I have had quite a few trucks threw the years with lights mounted to the hitch or rear bumper platform in one way or another and never lost one light to a snow bank. Was thinking about 2 in the bumper flush mounted but so far they have not been needed. Most rugged simple to use back-up lighting unit on the market today.
For safety it has a Whelen amber strobe and 2 utility lights that move up and down, in and out. I wonder if i can just splice in to the correct with on the back side of the 7 pin plug. I prefer using my mirrors, but the reverse lights offer zero side illumination. Connect the - cable from the led lights to the ground terminal on the plug. I know I have the Opt7 led bar on my current 2014 and I plugged it into the 4 pin but still had to run the wire and attach it to reverse light. Or do they need to be wired separately to the taillights somehow? Depends some plug into the plug 4 pin on back but the only way you will get reverse light is if you wire it into your reverse light or if it has the 7 pin plug which has the reverse light built into the plug. I also used the same plug to run my bed lights.
I turn them on when I'm spreading so I can see my spread pattern. But i'm not too keen on splicing into the factory wiring of a brand new truck under warranty. I only connected the reverse light lead and ground lead on the plug to the led lights. I also use my truck for doing repairs on trucks and heavy equipment on job sites. Ram should have used the turnsigal lens with led switchbacks it's a clear lens and would have put out great light for the sides and back.
Hope everybody has a safe and Merry Christmas. Now lets bring on some snow here to the north east. I've attached mine to my spreader. Last year I had to take my spinner off to pull our skidsteer out, and when I put the spinner back on afterwards I didn't attach it properly. Like these as an example. I plan on running it permanently though.
I haven't pulled the tail light yet to see if it's possible to easily retro, but from the out side it looks like the led tails are smd boards and not led bulbs could be wrong though. Automatically goes on in reverse and with the conveniently placed switches on back of unit you can with your parking lights on use it as a utility light for those times when you need that extra light. Check out the Nilight led flood lights on Amazon. Anyone in the Seekonk, Ma area can now pick up the Back-up buddy at Pioneer Heavy Duty Truck Parts on rt6. They are pods so you can just cut out a small 4 inch square in your bumper and flush mount them. Did you create the connector? I've been looking at adding some light to help improve night time camera quality, but I'm confused as to how they are powered? It is plenty bright for me.
I run with 4 led lights with my reverse lights, that have been frosted to spread out the light. That was my plan with a Putco Blade i bought but it will not fit a 2019 ram. Now of the ones I've found explain that very well. So, like others I find the backup camera at night to be useless.

You are doing it all wrong if you are losing lights. . Put it back on correctly and the lights still work perfectly. Do they plug into the standard plugs on the back of the truck where a trailer would? Connect the + cable from the led lights to the reverse light lead on the plug. I bought a set for my truck a couple years back and wired it into my reverse lights as well as wired it up to a switch to override my reverse lights. Its amazing clarity in daylight but totally sucks at night. This is temporary and can be reversed.
They are located on the frame behind the bumper 2 on each side and 4 on the headache rack on their own switches. I've got a version of this that they made for me. . . . . .
