LED backup lights

Hey guys, this thread really applies to all SuperDutys...7.3; 6.0; 6.4...any truck with backup lamps

Was wondering if any of you used LED back-up lamps (White) in your stock housings; or even RECON LED tails.

We have them on all of our trucks. Started out with mine, then my brother asked me for a set, then my dad, and now a few people at the dealer are asking me about them

They just plug in as 3156/3157, and they produce more light than the standard lamps. Average life is over 70 000 hours so they will most likely never need replacing. They look really sharp too; they illuminate instantly, so quick that when you shift from drive to park they flash on when crossing the Reverse switch. Will try to post pictures or video soon, but just wanted to throw that out there.

If any of you are interested in a set, let me know!

Cheers

I had a set but they were just a hair bigger than the hole in the taillight that you have to stick them in. I was changing my taillights one day and couldn't get it back out and I broke it I need to get some more, they were awesome while I had them

Hmmm.... waiting for video and pics. I know it can be pretty darn difficult backing out and seeing out the back of a tinted window at night.

I got mine off ebay. They're called radial leds. They have leds on the back of the bulb that shine back into the reflector instead of just straight out like most. I think they were like $10 a piece. For some reason, white leds are higher than red and amber. I think my matching amber bulbs were $7 each.

If you guys want to get them through me, that's fine cause some don't have accounts. There's a certain type I buy that have a higher amount of LEDs in the bulb itself for a brighter effect. You have to watch out for the cheaper designs that break easily.

As for a video/picture of my bulbs on my truck...all I have to say is I hate Olympus cameras. I have tried 4 times all night and it won't turn on but tomorrow should get some nice shots hopefully.

I have not seen too many of these locally, but when I do it's the cheaper design, or they simply don't have that many LEDs inside.

Will probably have a link on Youtube tomorrow along with some pics....

stupid camera
