    I'm looking to replace my stock reverse light bulbs with some brighter L.E.D bulbs. I'm wondering who has done this already and what bulbs did you buy.

    I have full led tails, but if I were wanting to get led bulbs, I'd go thru retrosolutions.

    Not sure what socket type bulb your tail lights take, but these are the one's I bought a while back, pretty sure they'll fit yours toohttp://retro-solutions.net/product-info.php?3156_3056_3157_3057_3457_4157_T20_5W_CREE_LED_Reverse_Wedge_Bulbs-pid704.html. Definitely improved light output behind the truck

    Retrosolutions site has a link to sylvania's site that shows what your stock bulb number is, then you can match it up to retrosolutions led bulbs

    Thanks everyone. So when you look at those bulbs its asking to choose a bulb type? Top 5w only and something else? What do I choose?

    Personal preference i guess, i ended up going with the top 5w led only and very happy with them. To my understanding, the second option-radial led-emits light around the sides of the bulb as well? Not too sure on the difference, but either should work
