Add-on Lights

New add-on lights, for dress-up and additional safety, have been specifically designed for Transcraft trailers and can be installed by plugging into the existing wiring harness.

The rear bumper marker light kits do not require aftermarket alterations that can sometimes void a manufacturer’s warranty.

Each kit has an aluminum rear bumper filler plate, four red combination Grote SuperNova LED or incandescent marker lights, wire harness and adapter plug.

The kits are available for the rear bumper filler plates on flatbed and dropdeck 96-inch and 102-inch trailers.
