Envoy Reverse Lights Upgraded!!!

Today I finally found some lights to replace the ugly red and extremely dim reverse lights on the Envoys. I got them from a local auto parts store called Bumper To Bumper. They are actually tractor lights made by Peterson, model number V507. They are clear(no red reflector) with a black rubber surround. They had metal brackets on the side of the surround, but they were in the way so I dremeled them off. I wired them directly in place of my reverse lights and they work great. I left them on for over 30 minutes and had no problems what so ever. My next step is to wire in the relay and an under dash switch so I can turn them on manually for when I am hooking up my trailer in the dark. I will post pics after it gets dark in a little bit.

They other Ascender light wont be going in for a few weeks probably. I am trying to get one for a good price and sometimes that takes a while. I bought the other one from ebay for $25 total, I want another at that price. Its dark, gonna go get some pics now.


Its kinda hard getting pictures of how bright they really are. I am not sure of the wattage, but they are much much brighter that stock. They dont look yellow in person like they do in the pics either.

Thats a good idea. The damn stock lights in our 'Voys suck. How bout some HID reverse lights .....with a manul switch to blind the 's that ride your but in traffic.
