    I want to try these out. They work really well from what the pictures show but not sure if they last long.

    In addition to likely poor performance in the stock reflector bowl as @Tullie D posted, the Lumenex mounting scheme is very suspect. Instead of locking in place with four cam lugs like the stock bulb socket, it has a rubber grommet with some barbs. The electrical connector is left outside the lamp housing without any weather protection :facepalm:

    If anyone wants to give it a try, tape up the electrical connector really well, or the light may go wonky after the first run through a car wash. The back of the lamp housing is fully exposed to the ground underneath.

    Just a heads up, the back up camera hates bright led bulbs. It’s going to look all diffused.

    Can't speak to the ones you posted but I bought this lot, which includes reverse light LEDs and they are quite a bit brighter than the stock bulbs and work really well backing up in the dark.

    I get the buy once cry once philosophy, but in this case I think you can get quality LEDs for a lot less money.

    Ive done this one, and ya, it doesn't help the backup camera at all, but in all fairness it was pretty crappy already
