I ordered the ones from VLEDs. Super bright, straight swap. Really improves nighttime vision with backup camera as well.

Yes. The WK2, at least 2014+, has two different bulbs--one is in the outer light housing, and the other is in the light housing accessible from behind the cargo door panel. In the U.S., the outer light housings utilize the brake lights for turn signals and so it has another backup bulb. Overseas, the backup bulbs in the outer housing use amber bulbs for turn signals and flashers.

did you consider the white V3 Triton's ? would those be overkill? I have a 2014 overland and I will be either buying the ones you suggested OR the V3 tritons. for the ones below the brake lights, with the ones you suggested for the ones on lift gate.

FYI: My main reason for wanting the brightness is for the backup camera.

EDIT: I was also wondering if you had any pics. of how bright they are? Thanks!

I wouldn't get the v3's for reverse lights, brake light v3s all the way, but v3 reverse is just way too much overkill for backing up. I have the 510 lumen 21LED bulb with medium tinted tails (currently only on the outers) and there is way more than enough light output for backing up. Will get a pic for you later tonight so you can see the difference.

I did not consider V3s for the backup bulbs, but I do have them for my brake lights. V3s are unnecessary in my opinion.

The bulbs I posted are very bright. There is a HUGE difference in visibility with the backup camera compared to stock bulbs.

Re: What is the Brightest plug and play reverse light bulb?

Sorry for the delay... Again, I have the v3 outer/brake lights and the 21 LED 5k reverse. The inner bulbs are still factory bulbs.

Here's a better shot with the glare reduced so you can see the color difference

Looking back
