New LED reverse lights

I had my body guy install my LED reverse lights today. They're wired directly to my tail lights. I was going to install them myself but I rather have a pro cut the bumper and it was pretty inexpensive. Total cost about 145$ Click image for larger version

I'm very happy with the outcome, and it didn't break the bank.

Thanks man, I initially was going to make a removable setup using the hitch wiring, but I only have a 4 plug setup. I really love the look of the permanent placement. Post pictures when you set yours up.

Nice setup, Surely it would be noticeable at night even in day time.

Love this. I am going to order the lights based off your Amazon link. I understand how they would be wired, and I understand cutting of the bumper. However, based off the link you posted, those lights have at least a 2-3" casing in the back so how did he mount them to stay put?

Thanks for any input. Looks great.
