Tail/Reverse lights

Tried searching, didn't come up with much...That being said, what has everyone done for brighter reverse lights? I have 5% tint and while I elected to do so, knowing how dark it would be at night, I'm starting to get tired of rolling down the windows to see better while I'm backing up. I'd love to see pics, if possible, of what everyone out there has done. Thanks.

I installed 912 LED bulbs in my reverse lights, and added 36w LED lights under my bumper. Helps a lot

You have a pic you could drop in here? Id like to see how your lights under the bumper look.

That’s where I buy all my Canbus bulbs from cheap, they work great. But Morimoto tails are better 😬

I tried fairly expensive leds in the tails, and they’re brighter, but nothing will match a set of pods. These are just cheap floods like you’d get on amazon, but they do their job well.

Tail/Reverse lights

I have pretty much the same setup as Dman. LED replacement bulbs in the tail lights do their job in somewhat well-lit areas, parking lots, etc. But for areas with no light, nothing beats a set of flood pods. I have mine hooked to a switch with constant power making them very useful for hooking up trailers at night, unloading/loading, etc.
