Back up lights?

I want to put some after market LED back up lights under the back bumper since it can be extremely hard to see at night between the 15 and 20% tint and long bed. I really like the rigid industries set but for $190 I'm just not sold. What do y'all have/recommend? Thanks.

Look for some cheep ones to put back there. Tortan is a good quality and good price light, but doesn't have the light output of a rigid..... but it is just a back up light...

ALL LED lighting is made with Chinese parts. Doesn't matter if they're $1000 Rigid's or $20 SuperbrightLED they are the same "bulbs". Rigid brand lights are for crack smokers looking to make their trucks more "off-road-y" without ever needing to turn them on. Hell, Bill makes his own lights.

I have 4" round LEDs. They work GREAT and are only $35 for the PAIR
Amazon.com: LED 4" round spot light off road Rack Bar lighting 4x4 Trucks ATV UTV Rhino 12volt 2pack Combo: Automotive Amazon.com: LED 4" round spot light off road Rack Bar lighting 4x4 Trucks ATV UTV Rhino 12volt 2pack Combo: Automotive

I also put in LEDs in the taillights too to cut back on amperage draw

I agree rigids may have the same bulbs, but I've personally seen side by side comparison of rigids vs xx and the rigids our shine and xxx brand has more light scatter.

I'd never spend money on rigids for reverse lights tho
