Rear Camping Lights on the JK

Today I fitted 2 new rear antenna/light holders to each side of the spare.
Just to check it, I got a couple of cheap led lights to put on and the light output is amazing.
I went for "low profile" lights to minimise the blocking of the visibility through the rear vision mirror.

A couple of D2's might replace them a little later.

What type of lights are those? They look like LED. Where did you get them?

Ironically, I have the same lights you have on the sides of your bumper pulling duty in the same manner you have the new lights you installed. I plan on doing the Rigid Industries SRM Mini's when they are released to market next year as a replacement for my rear floods.

Unfortunately, I'm not a jarhead but the sticker is to remind me of a great day spent with 2 marines on Miramar MCAS a few months ago when I was taken all over the base and shown lots of good stuff while banging about in the back of a (real) Hummer.

I'll wait for the minis if it means I can have the performance in a small package!
I'm still trying to get time off so that I can go camping and enjoy the JK.

I need a light weighted flashlight

I am planing a camping trip this weekend, when I am packing my camping bag I found it too heavy, so I decide to cut some weight, finally I noticed my camping flashlight is too heavy since there are lots of light weighted flashlights online. But I am going out this weekend, paying express shipping cost as more than USD 12.00 seems do not worthy . So should I bear my heavy flashlight this time ?
