    I noticed my reverse lights are a little dim. I would like to upgrade to a brighter light. Any recommendations???

    Sylvania Silverstar is a whiter, brighter light that helps you see. Another option is aux back up light, I have one its great it lights up everything behind the truck.

    Extra lights on the Back like these on a hitch or bumper will help alot...

    I won a set a few weeks back on here. There are 2 options for wiring. There is a plug that you can just plug into your trailer wiring plug and there is a lead that goes to light set. You can see the plug if you look at Enkeiavalanche's first photo. Alternatively, you can wire hard wire them. You just need a ground, a hot wire and your reverse wire. What is really nice is that there is a toggle switch that allows you to turn them on without your truck running or without it in reverse. I can see very well behind me now. Here is a review I wrote about the lights: http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/sh...ht-Backup-Lighting-System?p=530752#post530752

    Yep, that's why you run a hot wire as well as reverse, we use a park light triggered wire instead of the hot but that is just because if you walk away from the front if the truck you might not realize you left the reverse light on, whereas if you have it park light triggered you'll see your park lights on from any angle

    Lol enkes I'm back up in the oil fields for a couple months

    Hmmm! That is a good idea. After I leave it on accidentally one time and kill my battery then I will change it over. I soldered all my connections, so changing over is not as easy as it would have been if I used the included wire clips.

    Good that you soldered, always the preferred choice!!
