I don't have LED tails, but i've had my deautokey backup lights for like 3 years now with no issue. Really nice having them with 20% tint lol.

Yeah i dont really really need them as i live in the city and almost always there is some source of light. But you can see a lot more and be seen a lot easier with the LED reverse lights.

Yes these tails for Reverse lights use 921 bulbs.(they are the stock euro size bulb) i originally tried to use the stock halogen 7440 and they will not fit in the socket or housing.

I used these halogen bulbs
https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...tbp2/5080156-P

Then bought the deautokey led bulbs because i wanted flood lights for reverse lights.

The halogens are alright for use and arent bad. I just wanted to go to the LEDs and be as bright as possible

So when a big ass huntsman is crawling around in your garage do you freak out or are you use to it?
