They seem to match identically? or do you see any variation whatsoever in the color?

what I do like about those Putco bulbs is they seem to be identical bulbs, just with different bases, so as you guys stated, the output and color should be spot on. Pretty pricey though. So it would be approx $120ish for a pair of 921s and 7440s? I may try and return my Philips 922s and bite the bullet and go with the Putcos. The fact that they are the same bulbs just with different bases is what I really wanted to do.

Thanks

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

Semi-related note....

Does anyone know if anyone has contacted "Eagle Eyes" and asked them why the frak they half-assed their otherwise awesome LED tail-light replacement by NOT simply including the white reverse lights in their LED retrofit?

2014 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited LED Tail Lights Red Smoke RH LH | eBay


I mean....that omission is just too stupid to be accidental. There had to be some sort of deliberate "reasoning" behind that manufacturing choice.

Just wondering if anyone has heard what the story is.

Also.....I presume "Eagle Eyes" (plural...on the mfg tag in the photo) is NOT the same as "Eagle Eye" (singular...manufacturer of LED auto lighting). Could be an erroneous presumption.

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

Looks like I found what I need and xenondepot has the best prices now. I didn't see anything currently in the vendor section, but does xenondepot have any discounts that work all the time for members here?

Yes, they are identical. At least as far as I can tell.

They are pricey bulbs. I also ordered from XD but I have occasionally seen them on Amazon. It looks like they are doing 10% off a less than $199 purchase right now. I'd personally wait until they are doing at least 15% off as they are seemingly always running a special of one kind or another.

Ok cool, does xenondepot always post these discounts in the vendor section if there is one? or do I need to watch something else? The bulbs seem to be on sale right now, not sure if its the normal price or what, but looks like each pair is around 54 bucks which seems to be a little better than the best price I can find on ebay at the moment.

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

Amazon has them for 54. But the xenon sale. Sometimes they will post here or if you go onto there site, it usually says what the current promo is. Right now it's 10%. I would just call and ask them if they can do 20% today. It's only 5 bucks difference

I would just check their website from time to time. They always have a banner up top on their homepage announcing the percentage off.

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

Putco Plasma comes in both sizes, got mine from Amazon. Expensive but top quality.

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

Thanks for all the help guys. I ordered the Putco plasma 7440 and 921 bulbs. I'll be returning my Philips 921s. I'm excited to get these. Ended up buying through xenon depot. Bulbs are on sale now and had 10% off of that as well as free shipping!! Still pricey, but better than what some other places are asking. I'll post pics when they arrive!!

Thanks

Re: Reverse LED question with pictures.

I went with the putco and Phillips and least far in daytime it looks good.
Not sure if it's been mentioned?
For the 921s do not remove the 10mm nuts! Remove the hatch panel instead. Easy enough to do once you see it
