Actually that may come in handy if someone wanted to install a bright spot or something. Probably would work out nice in the dark desert if you have to backup.

Hey Thanks for that we are building a cage right now with a back up light in the rear bumper, and wanted to wire it into reverse. Havn't had a chance to look through the Teryx with a fine tooth comb.. Thanks for the useful tip!!!

A customer of mine tried to use this pig tail and promptly burnt out the switch or something along the line. He said it came on for about 15 seconds and that was that. I would suggest using this lead to power a relay switch ran to more power....

Is that for a reverse light or a backup alarm? Alot of the mules have backup alarms installed for contruction use. If the switch burns out quick running a light, I would think that it would be for a backup beeper which don't take much power to operate. By the looks of the plug, a backup alarm should plug right in to it.

I have a 55w halogen fog light wired directly to mine.The way it is wired the light can't be grounded to any metal or it causes a dead short.I mounted mine to the plastic under the tailgate.

My son also installed a 55W lite from Wal-Mart. I don't remember what it cost, but I know it wasn't much. It really lites up the whole area to the rear & has been working real well so far. I believe the description on the package said "Tractor & Implement light" so it is designed to light a large area for backing up. The only problem I noticed is that it will have to be relocated if I later install Muzzys.

Has anyone run the rear gusset w/ lights on this wire? Does it go hot when you put it in reverse? Thanks for the help.

Smile Backup Light

This has probably been discussed over & over, but I have not been on the site for awhile. I bought a relay & my son is going to wire it for me. We have the light installed on the frame. Is there something special we'll have to do so we don't create a dead short & burn the light out? I have heard that mounting it to plastic works, but would like to leave it where it is if possible. Any suggestions?
