Dang your missin the best one! The reverse lights are well worth it. What brand do you have? All of mine worked at one point but now they don't come on when the door opens.

LED replacements

I got mine from a company that makes them by me in Nj. They're a no name but have lasted longer then the others I got from superbright. No reverse cuz I got tails. Isn't there a switch to turn domes off when u open door? Next to headlight switch

I think it has to do with the cargo lights. I need to install a resistor or something. Is there any way I can get ahold of some of the lights you have?

I have LED's in everything except turn signals and reverse. My interior works fine, they even fade in and out. Not real smooth like the incandescent but they do slowly turn off in increments. Cargo light works fine too and I have LEDs there too. Do those reverse bulbs do any good for more light output. I haven't found any bulbs worth putting in the newer style reverse sockets because they use such a small bulb. If these add more light I'm ordering them ASAP.

damn idk why they would be either. i have two interior light that are still stock. think that has something to do with it? and are these like your cargos? Pair LED 194 Bulbs Replace Dash Meter Bulb in Auto | eBay

maybe the fact that i have those high output ones in my cargos has something to do with it?
