Brighter Reverse Lights

Anyone know the size or model number for back up lights. I want brighter ones because of my dark window tint.

I'd suggest going with a multi led setup possibly. APC makes a regular 3157 and super white ones, and of course ones with different colour. Unfortunately Piaa still does not make a 3157 bulb though.

I'd suggest multi led bulbs.

I used xenon 3157 bulbs for my reverse lights. They're a little brighter.

I doubt LEDs would be much brighter.

Strobing back-up lights . . . . . ?

Do they make those LED bulbs that flash and could they be used as back-up lights??

Knowing the laws in the commonwealth of Virginia.... that would be highly ILLEGAL.

I remember some one here saying they hooked-up strobing backup lights and that it was OK because the lights only came on when the car was in reverse. Anybody out there (Va. folks) know what the real deal is for backup lights in Va. ? ?

Maybe I should hook up my exta 9006 HID bulb and ballast to act as a backup light. LOL

I think that if you are going to hook up any reverse lights that take a lot more power than the stock ones you should consider using a relay and running a larger ground and power wires so that you get the full brightness of the lights and don't fuse your transmission range sensor contacts.

JC Whitney used to have a high watt reverse light for our cars. I almost bought it back when I cared about that kind of thing.

nothing stops you from modding the plate to mount an h3 bulb in there and then go and get a 100 watt h3 bulb.......... dunno how the lense would handle the heat tho.

Another idea (from a mod I saw on a TJ Jeep) would be to mod a wide angle driving light (white color) unit into the reverse light openings with the lense just exposed and again a 100 watt bulb.

Nothing stops you from doing mods, hell I like the HID idea, thou it would take a bit to get to full brightness :p
