Re: Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

so are these LED's gonna be fairly bright? OR should I do a lil DCSpecial and go HID reverse lights? I have a long driveway and have to back up & down and it is very dark...I want the brightest possible, but don't know about epoxy'ng the bulb to the tail light housing...

Re: Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

ummm ok im still confused.... the top option says 3 forward and 15 side and the 2nd ones doesnt say how it fires... which one would you say would give more usable light? you have the second ones right?

---------- Post added at 12:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:13 PM ----------

how about this option as well!!! this is a 1wat led!!!

Outfitted with the latest Super High-Flux 1 watt low profile Leds
Designed especially for gauges, and applications requiring a large uniform field of bright light
Note: These have the all metal heat sinks for constant-on applications to reduce heat related failures
Only 15mm diameter x 30mm overall

Re: Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

Sure thing. Is there anything else I can use to clean the bulb(other than rubbing alochol) before I put it back in? I touched the bulb with my fingers so i don't' want to put it back in without cleaning it off.
