LED Clearance Lights not bright

Has anyone upgraded to Retro Solutions T10 LED's in the cab clearance lights? I am curious if I ordered the wrong bulb because they are about half as bright as a stock bulb. I went with the amber light and I am running the factory amber lenses. Should I go with clear lenses?

I did this a while back and they are not as bright as a standard bulbs because there is only one small LED facing forward.

I took them out and just run the standard bulbs now.
