Additional brake and running lights

Wanting to add additional lighting on my 03 venture but really not sure what I want. Any one have any pics of things they have done or any ideas? I see they make a real thin brake w/turn signal that would mount on the trunk. Just not sure if That would look to small or too cheap. Unlike that idea because I think then I could add maybe same type for additional running lights on the side of the trunk. Also seem a bar that mounts under the trunk that looks ok. So just seeing if anyone has any pictures of what they have done or any different ideas.

I did this several years ago. Works great and doesn't look to bad to me. It's a stop, turn and brake light like the ones four under the tail gates on a pickup truck. Ran the wires under seat to tail light assembly connector.

That does look great. Where did you get it? Think that is what I am looking for. The one I seen was just 1 strip and not very long. Thanks that helps a lot

Bought mine at a local 4x4 truck accessory store. Think it was like $39. The light strips were 24 inches long and just cut them to length. The two light strips came together.

Perfect, will check that out. Thanks again and hopefully you are safe from the hurricane. Have a daughter just west of Houston and she sent videos last night of the flooding, not good.
