    It seems there is no thread on here about LED reverse lighting. If you back up at night, these make a big difference. Easy install, too

    I installed my JDS ASTAR 912 921 reverse lights last night and they are pretty great. Much more light output than the stock bulbs.

    Please link what item you are running and how they work. I will update this post with a list.

    I have heard one used who has used these for about a year. They are still working. 19.99

    70.00 pre-order

    38.99 These are rated by the manufacturer to have less lumen output than the stock bulbs. Do want you will with this info.

    Here is a review of several other led bulbs

    Here is an interesting shot I got in a parking lot. 6 pads on both sides and three on the tip

    Do these same lights apply to the third brake light as well? Thanks for the info! Been thinking about this for awhile now just hasn't been much concrete info on reliable ones.

    3rd brake light will be 194. Same as the map lights and license plate lights.

    They are a non branded light that my lighting manufacture found for me. The little lights are 10W Cree LEDs and produce 1000LM each. I've had a pair of spots wired to my reverse lights for 5yrs with no problems. Besides the reverse lights I also run them on motorcycles as day time running lights.
