Re: Reverse light mods

First time I've probably ever said this to a dude...but nice rack!

Yeah, I didn't get around to it last night, but it's on my short list to fit standard halogen bulbs in where the reverse lights are. Not HID, just Silverstars or something with some more azz than my little LED bulbs.

Suuure it is. That's probably what you say to all of us!!


Ok, that won't be very hard to do at all. I do want to see pictures of that too. One day when I'm bored I'll get around to something like that if it works well.

Re: Reverse light mods

Hehehehe....I'll get to it this week for sure. When I do, I'll be sure to post up some detailed pics of the process.

I have then on a dual throw switch too, so I can have them on independently and use them to work on stuff back there at night. It's pretty handy.

My buddy has a couple lights in the same location on his XJ. That's what I was suggesting when I said put a couple fogs on the back. He's turned them on while I was behind on the highway and they are BRIGHT!!

Re: Reverse light mods

Well, it was a crappy, rainy day today, so guess what I did....




As soon as it stops raining, I'll take some output shots and add them to this thread, but they are DAMN bright.

I got 3156 bulb holders from Napa, hollowed them out, and sleeved my old headlight bulbs with them. Then I epoxied them on, and replaced the original bulb holder with a 9006 bulb harness I had laying around. So now I've got a set of Silverstars sticking out my azz....
