So I want to add a couple lights on the back that would come when shifting to reverse. Are there wires tied in a harness somewhere for this? Or other suggestions?

I would think there is somewhere, because it shows up on the display when you’re in reverse. First place I would look is at the shifter area to see if there is a switch there, if not, then where the cable enters the transmission.

Why not install a switch for your backup lights, that way you can toss them on in case you need them for other things. (Such as finding a cold on in your cooler out back 😎)

It would be cool if they were turned on automatically while in reverse. I hope somebody figures this out.

just rig up a small micro switch down on your shifter under center console...........not that big a deal..............but I'd rather put it on a toggle switch dashboard mounted.

I installed mine on the roll cage with a toggle switch. Pretty easy to install with the help of this forum once I had all the parts. I ran the wires inside the roll cage where I could. I would like to add an electrical
Power Distribution Block under the dash wired directly to the battery so the key does not have to be turned on to run the lights. Sorry if the pics are too big, I'm a rookie.

I wanted mine to turn on automatically when I shifted into reverse. More so to let anyone in my group to see I was backing up but I also didn't want to forget I had the lights on. Bought the switch on Amazon and the lights from Menards. Whole setup was under 30.00

Awsome Scott68! That turned out great. What was the procedure to get it working?

Looks great! Do you have a link to the lights and mounts you purchased? That would be very helpful. Thanks!

Parts I used

Lights - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PXQGSPX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s03?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These lights may be a little over kill and I'm sure some smaller lights would do just fine and have less draw. The lights are very bright and I have not had any problems so far.

Brackets - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0753YM3VX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These required 2 sets (one set for each light) and I had find plastic inserts to connect to the lights to the brackets from HD or Lowes, I cant remember which store the inserts came from. the holes used to screw the lights to the brackets was too large but the plastic inserts fixed that issue.

Wire harness and toggle switch - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073TYH14Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This harness is listed at 12'. I ran the harness through the roll cage where I could and I had plenty of length.

There is another thread that contains a parts list that another member posted from Garrett at Deranged Off Road. It was my starting point. Of course you will need a push pin remover and other hand tools. I used water proof connectors from HD. I probably watched some youtube but I don't remember. I definitely watched a lot of youtube to install my Warn winch.

Hope this helps and Happy New Year!
