Reverse lights and license plate lights are certainly not a wasted effort. Much better camera visibility at night. Puddle lamps worth it as well. They light the area up around the truck like a landing pad. For those of us who don’t live in city lighted areas makes a huge difference. I wish when I hit unlock my reverse lights would come on. The more light the better. Especially when this ol’ boy is around. Headlights are a big improvement over OEM halogens as well. Match the LED fogs and give a better light. Everything else I agree is a waste.
