    I'm going to cry when I see that my 881s have been delivered and I'm not there to tear open a package like Christmas day in the middle of may :(:(:(

    someone console me and tell me that they'll be there when I get home just as safe as a bug in a rug

    I did the same about a year ago.

    So bright at night. I can see into most nook and crannies in my truck now whereas I couldn't see anything with the stock incandescent bulb.

    superbright has a chart online that helps you out.
    i got the reverse lights from Ebay. i might still have the box laying around somewhere. I'm studying for finals right now but when they wrap up i can see what i can do to help

    I think I got those same reverse lights...I love them. They are fairly directional though (straight out the back), but do help a lot since I got the cap...can see pretty well when backing at night now ;) I did see some that have 360 degree LEDs (which would offer more spread)...will have to see if I can remember where I saw them...

    Here's the expired eBay listing of the ones that I got (for the 01-04...there's another version for earlier models): http://www.ebay.com/itm/151007966900?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649&afsrc=1

    They are a LOT more bright than the incandescents...

    Just replaced my reverse bulbs with LEDs and they're BRIGHT!!! by Kathy / Analog Soul Photography, on Flickr

    They were well worth the $15.99 for two.

    I think RMAN got the ones from superbrightled.

    Cost about $20 each but he says they're insanely bright.

    My led bulb is from superbrightleds.com.. The domelight was <$10 including shipping. Part number for a 98-00 is 3022-xHP4.. The x digit will be replaced when you choose a color. Mine is the cool white so it's 3022-CWHP4. I'm not sure about the reverse light part number, but I will probably be buying those next. These OEM ones suck! You can type the model of your truck into superbrightleds though and it will tell you exactly what bulbs you need.
