LED reverse light bulbs

LED reverse light bulbs

Postby 95LT1Z28 [OP] » Dec 29 2011, 1:14am

Hey guys I am looking to replace my reverse lights, my cargo lights and license plate lights all to the bright white/bluish color leds. I dont really know what type of bulb (as far as angle and LED amount) to buy for the reverse lights. I know the sizes for all of them but I just dont want to the light to be a different color I want it to brighten up whats behind me better. Alot of times I use my reverse lights (that come on when you unlock the doors) to walk to my house so i want the benefit of added bright light. I usually buy from superbrightleds but they have a bunch of different choices for reverse light bulbs so any help or guidance would be helpful. Thanks!

I HAVE LED BULBES ON MY TRUCK. THEY ARE PRETTY BRIGHT. I THINK EACH BULB HAS 60 LEDS ON THEM. I ALSO HAD THE SAME BULBS ON MY OLD TRUCK. I WILL POST A PIC OF THEM AS SOON AS I GET OUT OF THE OFFICE

I have Sylvania Silerstar bulbs in all my back side lights, brakes, tails, signal, and reverse. I also use the reverse lights in my driveway, so I can see to get my mail. I got them on sale for $7 per pair, and they are worth it for sure.

Just an alternate to LEDs that also works just as well...

are they plug and play?
have you had any issues with the wiring getting too hot or the lenses getting too hot?

What brand and model number do you have for the reverse and cargo lights?

Also curious of brands and model numbers. Also did it improve the light output or just make them a different color? Thanks.
