Does anyone know of a manufactured bracket for a reversing light on a 06 Patrol or are there any good ideas out there for making one. Can't see a thing the way it is now.

Not sure if you are wanting a full time reversing light as you see on some 4x's where they have a stand, usually off the back of the spare.

I have done something a little bit different and purchased one of these

scroll down to the one with the magnetic base (FLOOD BEAM WITH MAGNECTIC BASE- 72438)

What I do is when I get into a situation (narrow track, one way etc) and I have to reverse out I simply attAch this to the back of the Nissan. When I am clear of it's not needed I take it off and store it away again

The magnet and the suction cups stick like stuff to a blanket I kid you not :-)))

Hi altim,
I've just had a (quick) look through the Alanco cattle dog
www.alanco.com.au (highlight, copy and paste) and they have a number of work lights that may suit you application, though the magnetic base suggested by KiwiAngler does sound good. May be a cheaper and safer alternative to a mounted light.

Cheers,
Wayne.

There is a guy on the patrol forum who was making some of these. I got one for a GQ and he told me he was putting the finishing touches on the GU. I have his phone number if you want me to email it to you.

I've done it a little different. This is on a 98 GU so may be different to the 06. The bracket uses the spare wheel bolts to hold it on. Wiring is through the middle of the wheel bracket.

How do you get the tyre off, is the light and bracket smaller then the center hole in the wheel or do you have a plug that you disconnect.

The light has got a 2-pin plug and the socket sticks out the middle of the wheel holder. The bracket is held on by the 3 bolts that hold the spare wheel on. The bracket does not interfere with access to the bolts, thats how it was made.









Got a bit excited about the photos! Hope that helps.
