Re: Brighter back up lights

nothing requires resistors unless they blink!
resistors just prevent "hyper flash" where they blink at mach speeds lollol

Re: Brighter back up lights

My old Heep had fog lights on the rear bumper.

I will be doing the same on my WK soon.

Actuall they are required on our Jeeps because the computer controls the blink and if it does not see enough resistance it pops fuses.

Re: Brighter back up lights

i was told all LEDs [no matter what car] if used as a blinker needs a resistor
doesnt matter if its a jeep or not

but regardless a reverse light doesnt need one

and i know cause i got LED brake light and reverse lights

They'll flash no matter what kind of bulbs you have. I've been running HID reverse lights for a while and they've been great.

Here's my how-to thread: V-LEDs premium digital 5000K HID kit as reverse lights

They're amazing!

Re: Brighter back up lights

for guys with these LEDs and the stock backup camera, how is the picture in the monitor? I notice that with the stock backup bulbs, the picture is almost to bright at night in the monitor, my concern is that bright LEDs would make the backup camera unusable at night.

Correct. I had some LEDs for back-ups and I couldn't see much. Not enough output
