    I have gone thru my Tundra and replaced them with LEDS from Headlight Revolution.
    Have not had any problems.
    The reverse lights are brighter than the stock bulbs.

    Most LED reverse lights will be brighter than stock.
    I did brake lights too, red bulbs are better, white ones look orange wit red lense.

    I have the older generation. I am really hesitant to say anything good about HR other then their incredibly awesome install videos. I first swapped all my bulbs to GTR. So far the only ones going strong are these reverse lights....I hope they stay that way. To be fair the headlights and fog lights lasted 2 years almost to the day before I lost 1 of each. Switchbacks not more then maybe a year. Interior ones maybe a year as well. The reverse ones are at 26 months.


    Edit: If your local to them their customer service was good also. They swapped out probably 4 sets of switchbacks for me. The annoying thing is driving around for a few days without a front turn signal. The last time I had an issue they swapped me a set for a single bulb(there was a huge cluster F$#k around that) and I bought a set.


    sorry to go off on a tangent just trying to be honest.

    60 bucks seems way steep for two bulbs. I've had a good experience with Lasfit bulbs. Just my .02

    I agree, whereas I feel Headlight Revolution bulbs are probably great quality, I have used JDM Astar, VIPMotoZ, LEDpartsNow and some other brands in my trucks for years, without issue. I use quality stuff and compare specs and you can’t get around the fact that Headlight Revolution is super expensive.

    I have a variety of LEDs, all much more affordable that none have had issues. I do stay with more mainstream brands, Philips, Sylvania etc. Mostly in the $10-20 pair range.

    I have not done the signals because of hyper-flash and the cost to eliviate.

    Imagine putting 2 of those under the tailgate instead of one on the license plate.

    I tapped into the passenger side of the reverse light. You will have to drill out a hole on the plastic black part of the bumper where the LP sits (and LP bracket if you have one) to feed the wire though to the inside of the bumper cover. There is a 3/4" space between the cover and bumper brace. So when you hit something hard, STOP. LOL or else you will drill right through the steel plate behind the cover.
