What Tailgate LED

So Iím looking to add one of those tailgate lights that acts as a brake light. It also appears that some offer backup light and blinker capabilities now as well.

What brands are people running? What brands are lasting?

are you looking for one that runs along the entire base of the tailgate, or a small one, or several small ones? and do you like having access to your spare tire?

Looking at the 60Ē or equivalent models that cover most of the gap between the tailgate and bumper.

Iíll be removing my spare here shortly since I canít use it with my 37s.

Iím running the same one as Rhino. Itís on my bed rack though and has running, brake, turn, and reverse lights. I donít think it would fit under the tailgate.

Although a very nice light that would work well on a rack; unfortunately, for my application, that light is too big.

Iím looking for something like this:



The one pictured is made by opt 7, and is really the only one Iíve found from a legitimate, non-eBay/Amazon Chinese junk manufacturer.

I hoping that there are others

For reference to anyone looking for something similar, I ended up going with a Putco Blade 60Ē bar with red turn signals to match OEM turns and a white back up light.

This is what I run. Connect to the wiring behind the Trailer in bed connection. I still have access to the spare tire hole with it installed. Didn't want the Orange Blinker like the others as there is no orange blinker on the truck and I liked the White Reverse.
