What's this for?

I was looking at photos on website and was wondering what this was on the tailgate?

I checked all the photos in-service and have nothing indicating a use for it when the tailgate is loaded up.


When the tailgate is loaded up the tail lights are not easily seen (understatement). So, as a guess, maybe something like rudimentary rear lights for compliance?

That makes sense.

Thank you Ross,

Can confirm they are for temporary legal lights when tailgate is loaded.

Thank you,

Could someone measure the handle and the mount for the temporary lights?
