    May want to post this in the 5ton forum. My guess says a moderator will be along shortly to move it.

    As for me, I'd just control them with a switch in the cab and call them "rear work lights", but state requirements vary so ymmv...

    Unless I'm totally missing it,

    I see no reason you can't post in any of the forums.

    I moved it to the correct forum.

    If you have trouble starting a new thread, post in the website help forum, or use the contact us link at the bottom of the page.

    hey buddie, I don't know if you have a Sprague transfer case ?? but on my m-51 I tapped into the reverse line on my t-case. put a t in the line and a brake light switch from a mack on it. had to run a hot wire to it from the batt, and a wire all the way to the rear to the lights.

    A pressure switch is added to the outside of the transmission to do what you want. Easy mod. Senses hydraulic pressure on the reverse clutch/band circuit in the trans.

    1/8" NPT pressure port located on passenger side of transmission, just forward of the MT654CR data plate.

    International switch shown below in pics can be found on ebay.
