Need LED back up light recommendations

Anyone have luck with the LED back up lights. I'd like something a good bit brighter than stock. I'm so pleased with the interior LEDs that Blwnsmoke recommended (thanks "B") that I'm moving rearward.
They should be stock equipment.

I don't have anything to offer, but I'm in for the info that will follow! I did the easy interior and exterior LEDs already but need better lighting in the rear.

I have accumulated a wide assortment of LED's recently, but I'm pretty sure these are being used as my reverse lights. They're much brighter than stock.

These will work too, as well as anything else that looks similar. I think these would be better than the ones I'm using because the higher SMD count on the tip..

Thanks Dan, the second set you listed are rated really bad on Amazon so beware if you're thinking of ordering them. After looking at LEDs for a while, it appears to me that there must be a quality issue with some of them, as some get 5 stars, while others get 1.

Check out innovative engineering. I have a set on my jeep and they are nice.
Sometimes there site was weird to navigate, but they are a good company.
I bought a set of 4 bulb cubes but they were out of stock and upgraded me to the 6 bulbs at no charge.

I Googled Innovative Engineering, and there are many companies by that name. Do you by chance have a link?

You're right. I hadn't notice the reviews for the classy auto LEDs. Some of the people who gave 1 star reviews sounded really stupid though...."I bought these lights and they didn't fit anywhere on my car!"....Haha

These seem like they would be brighter than mine. They're made by the same manufacturer, but longer with more diodes. The reverse light section of the tails has a good deal of space and allows for a long bulb.

There's a video on Amazon about them too. The guy said they should be taken off the market as they might catch on fire. They were discolored pretty bad.
Good ole China quality. I appreciate your effort, just not much out there that's very good.

Yeah. I would expect most of them to be made in either Taiwan or China. You can buy a pack of them to have extras. After ordering and installing one kind, I would notice different ones on Amazon with even more SMDs and ended up ordering those. I have a box full of them now...
