    You don't need a billboard back there, just enough light to see the plate. Dimmer bulbs will help the reverse camera. Are there dimmer/smaller bulbs that will fit the stock housings?

    I'm aware of other fixes, I'm simply looking to replace the bulbs with the dimmest that will fit.

    You’re needing dimmer than the factory incandescents?
