2015 Reverse Bulb Type

From the research I've done, it looks like most say there are (2) 921 bulbs and (2) 7440 bulbs for the reverse lights. Although every bulb guide I look at only shows 921. Which bulbs and quantity are for a 2015? I want to convert to LED and like the Philips 921, but they don't make a 7440 white.

Re: 2015 Reverse Bulb Type

Don't go by the guides, your research is correct. Check out the putco plasmas. They make both fittings and are good bulbs. You can find them on xenondepot or Amazon among other places.

Re: 2015 Reverse Bulb Type

Yup that is correct. The only problem is that when you mix and match bulb types and brands you get different color of white output. Even if for example they both claims 6000k. I originally started with the Philips 921 which was good, but when I paired it with any other bulb you can see the difference. The only brand I was able to get both sizes in white and that matched perfectly was The Putco Plasmas 921 and 7440. Good bulbs, perfect color and they match identically. Not the cheapest bulbs but whatever I guess lol. It's only money.

Re: 2015 Reverse Bulb Type

Yeah not paying $120 on 4 led bulbs. I'll just buy them through ebay for $20 and deal with a slight mis-match in color.

You still have that old 2015?? Thought by now, you'd have some new iron.

Yeah I still got it. Just over 4.000 miles now so she is getting a bit old lol. Actually the dealer has it now doing some recalls and a few other things. No plans on selling that HA I really do like it. However, I have been doing a little looking around at Corvettes recently. I have always been a vette guy and IMO nothing beats having a Jeep and a vette not sure if I'll actually do it but I have found myself on the vette forums and cars.com app recently haha

Re: 2015 Reverse Bulb Type

Just threw in my eBay bulbs today. They look great, color matches and they are plenty bright. Looks so much better than the yellow incandescents. All for $20 shipped.

Can you post pics? I'm much more interested in the $20 route as opposed to the $100 one.
