Before i start, please don't start giving comments on how wrong this is, how illegal it is, how dangerous it is, or any of that crap. I am aware of all the consequences


I changed my back up lights to 65W 9005 bulbs. Then i proceeded to add a switch to it so i can be driving normal, and if someone tailgates me, or comes up too close to me at the light, i flip the switch, and it looks like i was backing up, Pictures will be up in 10 minutes or so.

The Switch hidden under my dash.

This is how i passed the Wire to the tail light. (PS. you need to rotate it)

Another comparison of the light, Driver side is 65Watts, passenger side is Stock

As you all Know, Images of Lights never do them any justice, but still, they're pretty bright, I m gonna try to take a video of it in complete darkness

Nope, not HID, i was gonna have them as HID, but didn't want the fact that they take time to warm up. My next plan is to make them Silver stars.

Nope, when the switch is off, they're still as bright, the only reason why i have the switch is to flip them on while i am driving forward (Blind tailgaters or scare the crap out of them). The way its wired is i got a bulb adapter (i'll post a picture later) i "quick tapped it into the factory reverse bulb adapter, and at the same time, i ran a wire from my remote start/ ignition and tapped it into the same bulb adapter (so it has 2 positives, one from the factory reverse, and one from the switch).


You can always go back to the original, everything is there.

I have never done it but my idea is to have a switch that turns on the tail lights, makes a loud squeal from a speaker or maybe an air horn, and lets out a smoke screen. I don't know how to do it but that would make a mess in their pants and learn to stay back.

I do like what you created.

Hook up your windshield washer fluid squirters to your bumpers and squirt some brake fluid on their paint......

Either that or get a qbeam and point it in there eye.

Or get those under bumper lights that write words on the ground. Would be hard to see in the daytime but at night can't miss it.
