    2-black hard-anodized aluminum water resistant hsg
    3- 10 ft cord with a quality cigarette lighter plug will be powered from the hitch connector
    4- adjustable mount if possible but need a secure mount more

    I think you might have to either buy a ready made device or just build your own.

    This is Australian but its an example of what is readily available just about every where - they're all the same re-badged design. As far as I can tell it meets all your requirements

    Have you considered strip LEDs?

    Attach them to the sides of the bed...under the overhanging top part.

    Use "Outdoor Goop" (or marine goop, or automotive goop) to attach them. I use it for HAM radio / coax installations on trucks, and it has never failed me yet, except that it looks a bit like wet snot after it's dried. Caulking tubes are easily available online and at some better hardware stores.

    EDIT: This guy has a cool idea, that I hope to copy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B778nRKIBFo
    Without his video, I would have put the strips facing down, and wired them to a switch in the cab. His way, when I turn off my running lights, the bed lights are killed.

    I did recycled, and even bought them. but they aren't bright enough to work under. look great and are fine for general lighting. I need something to work under thats bright and waterproof. with this light I bought I can change a flat/load up the bed/work under the hood of mine or another vehicle/and use it for backup scene lighting if I have a call out and need gear from my truck bed. If it works well i will pick up a second one and make one a fixed mount in the bed

    Any idea on the run time of the ones you bought? Look perfect for my fork lift.
