I like!! I should add that to my 3 other reverse lights! (Two on the rack, and one below hitch)

Then I really won't have to worry about my reverst camera not having enough light.

Noice, Im gonna look into this :D

Question though, how did you mount the bulb in the hole given that you had to remove the stock socket?

i slowly turned and forced it in there and then used tape to hold it in place. if you want pics of how it looks with the tape ill take one for you ;)
