Hi all.,,

For those of you that have rear lights (whether rear backup or work lighting), what are you using, and where are you mounting them?

Looking to put an 12" LED light bar on the front of my 2017 Grizz, and wanted to add a task/backup LED light(s) in the back.. just need a few ideas...

Thanks in advance!
Norm.

I originally was looking at the Rigid A series lights, but didn't want to spend that kind of money, so I went with cheap IP67 rated Rock Lights. They've been on for a year and work great. They throw out enough ambient light to light the area around the grizz just fine. They're small and were easy to mount. I believe they're like less than 30 bucks for 4 on eBay or Amazon.

Hey man

I have a rear rack seat/storage trunk so i rigged up my own set up. the rear break light i wired directly up to my factory tail light. my rear work/auto on reverse lights took some doing to get working right but you can see my schematic as well, my reverse lights i have them wired to come on automatically when i put the grizz in reverse as well i have a switch on the dash to manually turn them on and off. hope this helps and i know others will chime in, and probably with better comments :)

Hey Norm. I put a couple of cubes on the back of mine. One would be more than enough for me but I could only buy them in pairs. I just mounted mine to the bottom of my trunk.

Totron is a popular brand around here. Many report they are as bright at Rigid and just as dependable.

I also recommend wiring it where it can be turned on anytime (not with reverse). We just rode in conditions so dusty that we all ran our rear lights just to be able to see where the machine in front of us was. That's why mine were on in that pic.

I use a small Totron cube with a handle bar mounted switch. Plenty of light for a back-up light for me.

Another good spot, that's clean looking and out of the way. I like it!

Ya they don't do bad for the size. I usually use them when we're taking a beer break just to have some ambient light. I'm thinking of adding 4 more blue ones and having them shine under the grizz just because i can haha. You won't be disappointed with them, especially for the price.
