Thanks Guys. Picked up a couple of LED trailer lights and spent a couple of hours in my shop and made up a mount out of angle iron. Wired the lights up, painted and all's well. Thanks again.

It's really easy. My 14 yr old grandson ordered 6" LED stop/tail strips for motorcycles (or whatever) and installed them on my rack in less than 30 minutes (assuming you have a trailer plug on the back of your rig).

My Dispatch mounted on my truck for testing.

I used these lights Lights

Mounted them an a piece of aluminum angle using a 2” square u-bolt around the frame of the rack. Wired it to a 4-wire trailer plug.

I also added a pair of these Strobe Module really grab your attention.

With my 1up 2-bike rack I needed to add a 4" x 36" x 1/8" piece of aluminum to have the turn and brake lights visible to following cars. The Curt light kit is pre-wired and fast to install although the lights are not the brightest.
