I was going to cut holes in the bumper, but it was too much of a hassle (I'd have to drill through the steel bumper, not just the plastic to mount them). They may look kind of goofy, but my main intention was for safety and function, not appearance. Now when I reverse its like having headlights in the back.
I have them on a three way switch (On, Off and Auto), so I can flash those peky tail gaters at night.
id put a switch on them too, for the tail gaters. i bet thats perfect when your backing up on those dark roads :thumbup:
edit: didnt read the last post :thumbup:
i have been thinking about a tiny strobe for that same reason. they will back up realllll quick.
And suddenly flashing a bright light at a tailgater is a really bad idea (you're endangering yourself, the tailgater, and everyone around the both of you). Signal a turn and get out of the way (I know, it doesn't sound fair, but sometimes its better to be in one piece than to be right).
Your plan is all well and good, and i have done that many times, but the shitty part is when they follow you, we have little mop headed highschool kids all over here and they think its funny when your get mad and like to piss your off. enter..................... strobe.
