LED Reverse Lights-Input Needed!

I was talking to a rep on kbcarstuff.com and he recommended the
921 LED 360 Replacement Bulb - Replaces part number 579 901 904
vs
921 LED Stick - Replacement Bulb - White - Replaces part number 579 901 904

He said the 360 wouldn't be as bright but would cover more area because the LEDs are facing every direction as to the Stick one with only one LED facing forward. I have the stock bulbs in now and I'm just looking for that LED look so do you think I will be fine with the stick facing forward and still be able to see with my backup camera?

Also, he told me that the trunk lights don't function properly with the Grand Cherokee and that I'm not going to be able to replace that. Any suggestions did anyone get around this?

Does anyone do the Glove Box/Visor Bulbs for the visor mirrors???

Re: LED Reverse Lights-Input Needed!

had the putco LED in my reverse lights- with the front windows tinted to match the factory, i constantly had to put the windows down to back into a spot at night. ditched them for some silverstar reverse bulbs and am more than contant with the outcome. the only LED reverse lights worth a damn are the cree. other than that the stockers, some silverstars or HID reverse lights are the best options.

they look good if youre standing behind your jeep and LOOK bright, but they dont give you less light output than a stock bulb.

Ok, even with the stick one and not the 360? b/c he said that the stick was brighter than the 360 can you confirm which one you had.

Could you provide a link to the other one and are they plug n play to match a 6-8k HID?

Re: LED Reverse Lights-Input Needed!

I can't see either of those producing much light output. I bought a set of the cree bulbs on ebay and they are awesome. I also have my front windows tinted so I needed something brighter to see behind me at night.

These are the ones I have. The title says Chevy Camaro, but they fit the WK also.
