Sometime ago I mentioned in a post about removing the stock reversing lights on my Disco and replacing them with individual LED lights. While they did work well, I was never 100% happy with the outcome due to the huge holes left in the steel expedition bumper where the reversing and fog lights were.
Trolling ebay UK I found a nice set of "lower light guards" for the rear fog/reversing lights and ordered them. A little bulkier than most, they hide the holes in the bumper well. They also give the lights a lot of protection from errant parkers and backing up into my trailers.
With them ordered and the holes drilled to mount them, it was time to move in. Out came the 2.5" 800 lumen lights, the 7-way trailer receptacle, and the rear fog. In went slightly small 2 inch 900 Lumin lights. 1@ 130 degrees, 2@ 65 degrees and 2@ 30 degrees for a nice wide spread across the back. I also added to smaller flush mount lights to the sides of the bumper. Nobody will ever have an excuse to hit me in the rear again when I am in reverse. All told 6300 lumens of light!
Yes, the bumper needs some touching up and my truck needs a bath. I should also put the filler piece back in on the corner above the bumper. Someday...
I brought home my Disco over 4 years ago when I bought my SeaSprite 23. I needed a vehicle that was not a pickup for both towing and daily driving duties. The fact that I did not want an American SUV led me to either a BMW X5 or a Land Rover. I could not afford the 5er, so this lovely red Disco it was.
