Anyone ever use these AUX / Reverse Lights??

Ok. So for viewing my reverse camera at night i currently have a set of 6 LED lights mounted on the top of the receiver.

Car Truck Universal Day Driving Fog Aux White LED Light - eBay (item 140458494797 end time Sep-30-10 13:11:30 PDT)

They just aren't doing it. It barely lights up the ball let alone anything behind it.

I was wondering if anyone has used these from V-LEDS?

2 V-LEDS HID WHITE 12 LED DRL FOG DRIVING AUX LIGHTS

If not are you using some that are low profile but put out a decent enough amount of light so i can see backing up. Not looking for round lights more like rectangle low profile.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have any rear lights but have the same problem, the ones that you mentioned V-LEDS looks like a great idea and the price is very good, I think I will give them a try!

what about a couple Hella lights?

They probably can be mounted upside down somewhere back there?

I have these mounted in the bed and toolbox, they work great and put out a good amount of light. They are cheap too...

Northern Industrial Mini Wide Beam Sportlight Kit 12 Volt | Work Lights | Northern Tool + Equipment

I would guess you could mount these somewhere in the back to use them as back up lights

Wow, what a cool idea! Judging by the photos it certainly looks like a great alternative, and the price is nice too! You have a separate switch for them?

Any pics on how those are mounted? Those aren't bad if they truly are 1.75" tall. maybe ill pick a few up. I'm sure they are better than LED's.
