That looks great which light and mount did you use?
Thanks
That was a 3rd brake light relocation bracket and a flat piece of metal. Since then I've changed to the Zroadz Bracket!

So the trailer wiring connector has a reverse light circuit? I didn't know that.

My apologies...I probably wasn't super clear. I know there are wires already going to the aux buttons and I know where they are at. As I previously stated, my lights are already hooked up to the trailer hitch wiring harness to come on when I put it in reverse. I want to be able to additionally turn them on by using the aux buttons...do I just run a wire to the factory installed wires that's already run for the aux buttons?
Roadmaster diodes seem to be commonly used for this on this site. I have a few sitting around for future projects...
