Backup Camera - Poor night vision - Backup Lights
Since I back in at night, and that for some reason the backup camera in the 2019 Traverse does not work well at night, I had to add backup lights. Some suggested lighted bumper steps, but I really did not want a "butt-wart" on the back of the vehicle. I wanted them mounted similar to a factory install. I started by planning to install flush mounted units, but was too much on the back of the bumper to get that to work. So mount them low, just above the exhaust.
After a bit of a pain (getting the rear lower fascia off then on again), but assisted by a trailer plug to make wiring easy .. got them in and tested.
When mounted you almost don't see them down by the exhaust (image 1). An earlier comment suggested that LEO might ticket me for "offroad lights", but image 2 is what he would typically see in a driveby. So I don't think that is a problem.
If you backup during the day they are noticeable, but not too bad (image 3).
At night they work great (image 4). The backup camera kicks into daylight mode (better resolution) and much easier to back up. As an upside they stay on a bit as perimeter lights. Took longer than I expected due to learning about how the Traverse is put together. But if parts are in hand and the wiring harness done ahead of time, probably could be knocked off in afternoon.
