    I like it, looks good. I would definitely shorten up the ground wire when you can. Rule of thumb, no ground should be longer than 6 to 8 inches.

    Yes! Very nice!

    Another tip, if you want brighter light, buy the tractor lights and remove the bulbs. Go down to your local napa or guessing mostly any parts store and pick up a set of aircraft landing lights. Yes, the same bulbs planes use for landing. They fit in the tractor light housing and work good. I used them for offroad lights in place of KC Highlites or any other high priced brand.

    Great info, I never knew they were called porch lights.

    I have since converted the lights to go through a relay so I don't have to run all that power through the switch in the cab. I've also added 2 pairs of lights on the front of the truck as driving lights...

    Did know if anyone knew but most 86 and up but not all gm have a white wire in the rear that is used in the trailer harness that is a reverse light wire. I will get a picture.

    It's a ground trigger

    Definitely, please get a picture and details of that. I've actually had a new and improved circuit for powering my porch lights in my head that involves a SPDT switch and a trigger off my reverse lights to automatically turn the lights on when I go into reverse. With my circuit I'll also be able to turn them on on-demand or force them to stay off.
