    What have you guys done for supplemental reverse lights. I have a stock rear bumper and looking to put some LED pods somewhere on the back.

    Thinking of putting something like this right of the license plate opposite of the trailer hitch plugs.

    What set ups do you have?

    I put LED bulbs in reverse lightbulb sockets....great improvement over stock. But I know this may not be enough for some.

    +1 for LED reverse light swap. For less than $40 and 5 minutes of work it's definitely worth it.

    I guess I should clarify...

    I’m looking for lights I can select anytime and not just taillights that I have to be in reverse to use.
