LED Reverse Lights Installed...

After seeing how they looked and asking Chris (Geevis) where he got his, I picked some up and finally put them in! I only have day pics now, but Ill take one tonight! I def like how they look, although I am not sure if they are "brighter"!

Re: LED Reverse Lights Installed...

Did you have to wire in a resistor on these? I have the LED tails.

I got my LED reverse bulbs in the mail over the weekend... put them both in and only the driver's side lit up. Thought maybe I got a bad bulb so I switched their places and still only the driver's side lit up. Leaving the LED in the driver's side, I put the incandescent bulb in the passenger side and it lit up. So the passenger side isn't liking the LED reverse bulb, and I put the incandescent back for the time being.

I did however get the license plate LED's installed and they work fine.

Re: LED Reverse Lights Installed...

Obviously an older thread. Say from maybe 6 months ago?

Re: LED Reverse Lights Installed...

Any update on how well these perform? How well is the area behind them lighted? Usually LEDs dont project as far as reg lights.

I found a set of H3/H4 style reverse bulbs at auto zone for $15. I bought them and wow they are bright. But i have never been able to find them again.

Hmmm... I am going to throw my stock tail lights in today and see if the LED reverse lights work that way. Maybe I'll need a resistor if I'm trying to run the LED tail lights (the ebay ones) plus LED reverse lights.
