Question Flush mount LED's into rear bumper...

Anyone have any tips?

I just ordered 2 flush mount square LED lights to use as back up lights...

Says it needs a 3-1/8" hole. Guess I'll tape it off and use a dremel or something. Anything I can do to help prevent chrome from flaking and peeling in the future?

Also, best way to get the wires into the CAB under the dash to tie into a switch? My old F150 had a hole on the firewall near the break master cylinder. I would assume my 2013 will have one too??

1. Yer gonna need something a bit stouter than a dremel to make that hole in the bumper.

2. Wire routing (encased in wire loom). Not through the firewall, but the door sills. As shown here:

I think, depending on what's behind it clearance wise, I might try to mount them in the plastic part each side of the tag. Between where it dips in, and where the chrome starts.
