Here is a closeup picture of the installed light. They light sitting on the bumper is the factory reverse light with ugly red reflector. The light I installed is a sealed beam light for a tractor. It is a 4411 sealed beam bulb with a trapezoidal beam pattern. Since it is sealed you can not add HID to this particular set up. HID would be way to expensive just for backing up.

I never said it was pratical But as for the HID melting the lens, no problems with a melted lens. True HID stays cooler than normal bulbs so there is no need to worry about melting the lens. I do think this is a mod for all of us 'Voys. I might try finding a different style of lamp though.

impressed! looks like it came like that! GM should have put in brighter back up lights IMO

The XUV reverse lights would remove the red reflector, but would not give me additonal lighting that is greatly needed. I was going to do the XUV lights when I first got my envoy, but I cannt remember why I changed my mind. I am pretty sure it was because they are a different size, or maybe they were too much money for the end result of just removing the reflector.

those reverse lights are sweet, I do hate that red reflector of the OEM ones, that was one of the reasons I tinted mine.....BTW were the Ascender lights easy to install, any difference in the wire setup?

Wiring is totally different. I had to get wiring with bulb holders from a late 90s S10 blazer and dremel the key tabs to fit the Ascender light. I then had to rewire the old harnes to the new one. Luckily the Ascender light I bought the other day has the harness and bulb holder with it, so it will be a matter of just wiring it in. There are only a few wires so it is pretty easy. The Envoy taillights dont have the reverse light built in like the Ascender does so I will have to run a reverse light wire to the tails. This will be awesome since I will hack backup lights in the bumper and in the tail lights. They will be wired with a relay to all come on at the same time, as well as having a switch to blind the s that tailgate. I mean...they will have a switch in case I need the lighting at night to connect my trailer.

Here is a pic of the back of the Ascender tails.

How To Mount These?

I just ordered a set of these lights to upgrade the back up lights on the 2005 Envoy.

Picked them up on Amazon: (Peterson Manufacturing V507 Tractor Light) $17.98 each. They are available most anywhere.

I understand they do have a fixed mounting bracket that you must grind off....

My question is: How did you mount them? What holds them in?

When I do the install I will follow up with how to photos.

Thanks
