2015 Ram 2500 No-Drill Lighting Setup

Looking for some recommendations for a 2015 Ram 2500 Laramie Limited Crew Cab. This truck is used primarily for construction, so rear warning is the most important. I have simple setup picked out for the front of the truck, but am looking for some recommendations for a no-drill setup to the rear.

I figure a couple of LEDs on a license plate bracket is an easy place to start. I'd like to get some warning in the upper level as well. Perhaps a couple of LEDs in the rear window, or an LED warning bar/traffic adviser for the rear window? I can't seem to come up with a no-drill option for the rear window; the headrests seem they would be in the way. There is no toolbox to mount to, but the truck does have the Ram Box factory side boxes. I am not entirely against putting something like a Feniex Cannon in the cargo lights at the top of the cab, but am concerned that taking out the factory bulb is going to cause "bulb out" issues with the truck's computer.

Any advise for how to mount some rear warning on the truck without drilling holes? If you have pictures of something that would work, that would be extremely helpful.

Could you use some sort of strapping to attach and clamp a traffic advisor to the back of the headrests?

I considered this, however I only have about 2" from the headrest post to the glass, and I haven't been able to find any T/As that are shallow enough to fit.

You could just do a mag mount mini-bar. That should provide decent rear warning if you put the light at the rear of the cab. Also the Acari drill free mount has photos with a traffic director mounted on it. I did my truck without any holes and it works pretty good for me with a dash light and mini bar. You could do the same, just put two slimlighters in the rear window (you just wouldn't be able to slide it open as the suction cups would be on the middle section to fit two.

I usually recommend L-brackets in the rear window by replacing the headliner screws with self-tapping screws. The Feniex fusion stick and the SNM e66 mini are both ~ 1 inch tall. When I was a vollie, i managed to maintain a no holes approach in my SUV by pulling out the plastic screws holding up the headliner and replacing with 2 self-tapping screws and 2 L-brackets from lowes for about a buck; my dominator never had issues in the 5 yrs I had it mounted there
