    Hey Tundra Guys!

    I wanted to run a new unique product by everyone because I feel like this is something you didn't know you needed until now.

    image (17).jpg

    Up front we’ve already got bright low beams. High beams, and fog lights…But too often overlooked is our ability to see well while backing up in the dark. While there are plenty of LED bulb upgrades out there for stock reverse lights; when it comes to a backup light boost there’s simply no comparison to the XTR LP.

    image (16).jpg

    ENGINEERED:
    The XTR LP is the only system on the market that leverages optical refinement over raw power to produce the perfect reverse light beam pattern. We started by understanding the most typical installation angles and then optimized the lens to distribute the most possible light in the most effective pattern. To pack a real punch, the XTR LP packs more than just a lot of LED’s into a line on the back of car. It’s a fully engineered product.

    image (15).jpg

    WHAT’S INSIDE:
    54 CREE J Series 2835 LEDs rated at 4500K/80CRI. 180mA driver produces 29.9W of maximum power pumps out 2700 raw lumens that’s translated into 1950 real lumens after transmission through the optical lens.

    Image from iOS (28).jpg

    TECHNICALLY SPEAKING:
    At a 10-degree mounting angle, the vertical range is -20 to +25 degrees. At the most typical 0-degree mounting angle, the XTR LP provides a -30 to +15 degree vertical spread, which easily exceeds the illumination range of any standard backup for spread. Users should acknowledge that this product far exceeds the legal limit for output volume in a reverse light application.

    Image from iOS (26).jpg
    (This room was Pitch-Black! :eek2:)

    BOLT-ON:
    The XTR LP will bolt onto your vehicle’s top two license plate mounts. It’s die-cast aluminum housing is contoured according to the geometry of US-spec license plates for a flush fit, and the mounting points are positioned according to the same universal standard. The system is finished in a satin black powder coat.



    WIRING:
    The XTR LP is powered on with a simple +/- 12v circuit that’s intended to tap in to your stock reverse light wiring. The system includes 1.5 meters of integrated wiring that can be trimmed back according to your application, a quick-disconnect for ease of install, and an integrated rubber grommet to keep moisture and dust out of a pass-through hole if necessary.

    this is nice. Doesn't draw too much current and ok to piggyback on reverse tail lights ?

    Yessir, This is designed to tap straight into your Reverse Light circuit! Hell, you could even bolt one onto the Bottom of your Plate and run 2 of them + your Reverse Lights!

    Trying to get a code in the works as we speak, but I'm afraid we don't have anything running as of yet. Hoping soon though!

    This is pretty nice, thanks for the link.
    Just curious wouldn't this be too bright in the reverse camera to see on the head unit, I replaced my license plate light with led and when i have it on reverse at night I could hardly see anything in the head unit from the glare of the light.

    Sorry to discount @Headlight Revolution but I've had much better performance and reliability out of vleds..
    Bulbs, resistors, have never failed me.
    Headlight Revolution, I've had issues with their ultra thin contact wires breaking on license plate and parking light bulbs..
    Did they replace them? Yes.
    Did I use the replacements? Nope.
    Replaced them with vleds or Sirius leds.

    I also had this issue. After replacing my license plate bulbs, as well as the reverse lights on my Tundra...it was very bright when reversing. Almost too bright for the camera view. Thats when I discovered that the actual brightness of the back up camera view is adjustable, through the settings in the Tundra head unit.
    I turned the camera brightness down two clicks. So now when I put the Tundra in reverse at night (led reverse lights, led license plate reverse light, and led license plate bulbs (all VLEDS))...i have a clear rear view camera view that looks like daylight. Which is very much needed and helpful in the mostly rural/farm country area that I live in. And, like I mentioned earlier, VLEDS offers a three year warranty on everything they sell.

    Good morning my guys!

    Lots to reply to so I'm going to do it generally. The XTR LP and the VLEDs setup is very similar, but I assure you there is a difference! The XTR is brighter than the VLEDs model by a bit according to Xenon Depot. The lens is designed to create a more useful beam pattern for backing up, whereas the VLEDs model really is just a strip of LED Chips that spit light out the back for you.

    The VLEDs model does have a 3-Year Warranty, but the XTR Model supports a full 5-Year Warranty. So all in all, you're getting a Brighter light that installs the same way, and you get a better warranty for the exact same price. :)
