    So, while at SEMA last year, came across the Warrior Products booth (primarily Jeep parts) and poked around. Found these 2-inch LED backup lights - I liked the look and the inclusion of the grommets, which I figured would make for a super clean install. Warrior Products 2910 - Warrior Products...
