I like those reverse lights in the housing. I want some but don't wanna pay the money for them and have them burn up

I can't remember the exact link for the stock replacement, found them on here though so search around and I'm sure you'll find the thread. (I'll link it if I find it later) and the other lights are from amazon. Tuff LED lights. Neither broke the wallet.

Thanks Tyler. I just got some superbrights for mine. Well, there not very bright at all. They're SMD45's. I've got some aux lights under the bumper, but would like to remove them.
I'll try and find the ones you have, they look pretty bright!

I've tested that style of led myself...



Can't say I was happy with them.
After only about 20 minutes running at 12v they completely melted apart.
Be super careful & keep an eye on them to make sure they don't overheat & have a nuclear melt down on you.

They were quite bright which I liked, they weren't that expensive at around $30 a pair, but only lasting 20 minutes really sucked

...oh yeah, I've had a roll pan on my truck since the late 90's and just replaced the original with a new one.

. I suppose that if I ran them for an extended period of time I would be concerned, but considering they are on for maybe a minute I think they will be good. I paid around 15 for these so not too shabby on the price. Here are the other lights. Tuff LED Lights 2" Inch Square 10 Watt Linkable LED

I had trouble finding LED 3155's, so I replaced them with some LED 3157's. The mount is the same and they work beautifully. But because 3157 is a dual element bulb, it does matter which direction the bulb goes into the mount.
