Customer Reviews

All parts are of good quality.
Aaron Faletto
The reply that I received from KC HiLiTES bordered on rude: "...get some stainless screws at your local hardware store, we do not have any to send you."
TheoCoog
Nice and bright, good dispersion of light.

I purchased these for my 2012 F150 pickup. Anyone who has a recent model F150 knows what I am talking about - the back-up lamps on that vehicle are decorative at best - they throw no light behind the vehicle. I also tow a 30' travel trailer, so having bright floodlights that throw backup light off to the side is nice since backing into a campsite at night is always tricky. So the lights are mounted at an angle.

The package comes with everything you need - wiring, relay, etc. I have my own wiring harness and control module, so I didn't use the included relay or wiring. I was really only interested in the lights. Installation on the F150 is very easy, because the vehicle already has mounting holes in the trailer hitch frame. I am guessing the engineers at Ford anticipated this requirements. It took me about 30 minutes to install the lights and connect them to my pre-wired harness.

I was immediately disappointed with the light they threw. These are *NOT* flood lights, as advertised. They are spot lights. They throw a tightly focused spot beam, which means they only illuminate a narrow region of the field of view behind me as I back up. They are *NOT* at all suitable as back-up lights. They are so limited in their field of illumination that I am taking them off the truck, and I will mount them on the back of the trailer itself. I will buy better replacement lights for the truck - probably wide field LED lights.

If I hadn't cut the wires to splice into my existing wiring harness, I would have returned these. I recommend you do *NOT* purchase these as back-up lights.

I drive a 2007 Toyota 4Runner. The rear windows have factory tint and the OEM back up lights were never really useful. I purchased the KC HiLites 55w back up system from Amazon (which, as is the case most of the time, offered the best price). The system is a slightly more clostly than throwing a couple of cheapo tractor lights under your bumper, but the lights are slim and sturdy. The kit comes with mounting hardware, relay, everything necessary to integrate the wiring correctly, and I know replacement parts are available if needed. The only additional materials I used for the install were zip ties and electrical tape. I am by no means an electrician and it took way longer than it should have to install, but I went slow so as not to blow up my beloved truck. They installed nicely into pre-existing holes in the bumper adjacent to the trailer hitch. The only drilling required was to mount the relay and ground the lights. You can purchase a switch separately if you want to control the lights independent from shifting into reverse. I did not do this because the lights are mounted too low to be useful as camping/work lights and would only serve to blind traffic if used on the road. [For any 4Runner owners who might be concerned, the lights do not hang lower than the exhaust tip and do not look to be in danger of being ripped off unless you are doing severe off roading and havent lifted your vehicle.] Depending on the application though, adding a switch could be useful. The lights work well and are a great improvement over the OEM back up lights at night. I recommend this kit.

This kit comes with all the parts necessary to do what needs to be done. Although, I modified it slightly to fit my needs. I already had a custom switch panel inside the cab of my 04' Jeep Liberty, with leads into the engine compartment. I just swapped the location of the relay to inside the engine compartment instead of at the back of the vehicle, used hose clamps to strap it to the under side of my hitch (rather than using the supplied hardware & plates to install directly to the body) and locked it down with a nut driver. The floods are EXTREMELY bright with a nice wide beam. Of course, there is a center focus of light, but the lens spreads the rest nicely. I pulled the housing apart to see how difficult replacing the lamp is, and it's a piece of cake. It not a proprietary base or permanently encased. Just remove two screws and the lens with reflector. I might just buy the same model with similar lenses for various applications. Just spend a little more money than that generic crud, and you get all the needed wiring, (replaceable) relay with quick attach base, quick-release wiring from fixtures, even the split tubing to make it all pretty. The price here is much less than anywhere else.
I highly recommend!

This backup light kit (517) from KC Hilites has everything you need. The wires are plenty long enough for an install on a full size Nissan Titan pickup. The plastic wire loom included in the kit (to keep the wire from rubbing against the frame/body) was also plenty long. In fact it was longer than the wire and I had to cut it to length.

The relay included in the kit allows you to tap into the wire going to the OEM backup lights without drawing power from those lights for the new backup lights. KC Hilites also produces a switch kit (6303 sold separately) that connects into the relay and allows you to turn on the backup lights without putting the vehicle into reverse.

As noted in other reviews the description for this item is wrong on a number of accounts. Only one set of lenses is included, not three. These are the clear, long range lenses, not the fog or amber lenses. The illuminated switch is not included - that is item 6303 from KC Hilites. Light covers are also not included. The All Season version of this kit (516) does come with the extra lenses, switch and covers. Of course that kit is more expensive.
