Trailer Backup Lights - Again

So I know backup\auxiliary lights have been brought up many times and I used the search to try and find what I'm after but didn't come up with anything.
I am wondering if anyone has taken a light like this:



and flush mounted them into the back bumper for some extra light? I think it would give it a nice custom look and be functional as well.

Clicky to the lights

Looks like they are cheap enough it might be worth trying. I just figured there was some people on here that might have attempted this before. I'm thinking OC should have something like this fabbed up somewhere

That particular light is from etrailer.com (they had the best pic available) and there is a link to them under the picture. They can be had cheaper if you so desired from eBay, but you never know what you will get from there.

Imagine that, a trialer light at Etrailer.com, hahaha. They have always treated me pretty well; I can recommend them as a good group that stands behind their product line.

No more often than we need backup lights on our trailer, I just got 4 of these from Harbor Freight (on sale at $2.99 ea) and stick them on the back bumper if I'm trying to back unto a site after dark. They have a magnet on the back - not strong, but strong enough to stay on the bumper as you slowly back into a space.

We have 4 of these stuck to the vent over the stove top. Great little lights and we know where they are at when ever we need them! I will have to remember the bumper trick!
