    I received my HIR backups and am looking forward to the install. Bed is full of scrap at the moment, will have to wait till after a run to the dump.

    Nicely. Brighter. The yellower light is making me lose chicks though.:rofl:

    Seriously, they are better than the Sylvania Zevos that were in prior. I still feel like I want more light back there, but for now these are better. Pondering some other ideas and in no rush to get there, yet. Thank you.

    Throw some 6 inch led bars below the bumper and tie them into your reverse light circuit for mucho brightness.

    I’m probably going to do 2 of these under rear bumper and tie them into the Cargo Lamp Switch as an Alt. Reverse Light. It will be used as needed and on demand.

    Haha I am glad they are working out.

    Has anyone else gotten their reverse lights in? Thoughts?

    Not sure if I replied here but: Yes, my new reverse lights are much better. Great for using the reverse camera in the dark.
    Thanks for the thread.

    I have LED bulbs in my reverse lights that are very bright but my brake LED bulbs outshine them so with my crappy backup camera all I see is red when reversing. Lol.

    I like the idea of using the cargo switch.

    Do you know if the reverse lights and the cargo lights circuit are available to access in the kick panel? If so, you could use a diode one one circuit to activate the other. This would allow the cargo lights to kick on when your truck gets put into reverse but still allow them to work normal as well. I've seen this done over on the Ford forums on some of the f150s.

    Not sure. I’ll probably just do a tap at the Cargo Assy when I install a new one whenever down the road. Good idea though!

    Here is a pic of the HIR Bulb for future reference.

    Cleared the bed and installed the new backup bulbs. Lights seem brighter, will have to backup at night for confirmation.

    Old and new bulb

    Spread on the contacts in the socket is too wide for new bulb

    Used a small tool to bend the contact tabs closer together, perfect fit.
