Hi All,
I just finished upgrading my front lights with HID and LED. I had an extra LED bulb so I tried placing it in the reverse light housing. It lit up bright crisp white but since the led bulb was much much smaller than the orginal reverse light it did not provide enough light. I did a little searching and couldnt find this but has anyone switch their reverse lights to LED?

I am assuming it would look good and work better if I could find some LEDs which were a little larger to match the orginal reverse bulb. Any ideas on what fits?

As always, Thanks for the help.

Is there any way for me to compare sizes to the stock bulbs? superbightleds.com is where I got the one for my headlights

I don't believe there is an LED bulb that has sufficient lumen output and correct bayonet fitment to use in your application.

I've had LED backups for 2+ years or so. You'll need to get the
forward facing multi-led light. It is about the same size and shape as the filament bulb. Mine is round with about 10 low power leds.
It is bright and looks great. Get the super white.
