Depends...  Even if the LED's appear to be brighter than incandescents, if they don't project the light as uniformly as an incandescent it would be even less useful than what you currently have.

They do make halogen backup bulbs, I remember seeing them in the JC Whitney catalog eons ago (they were all bayonet base though.)  I can't seem to find any wedge base bulbs such as that. Which is probably a good thing, with the higher wattage I can see melted wiring and damaged housing if you left reverse on too long. :whistling:

Well, I got those, and they sucked.  So I happily used them as my dome lights.  They look great there.  Not so much in the reverse lights.  Although.... I found these:

So happy right now.  I'm gonna order them very soon, and let you guys how they are.  :banana:

Just put the money on my paypal.  Now I'm just waiting for it to get there so I could order them.  Should take three days.

I looked at the back of my accent, and saw that where they sit is pretty deep.  It looks like they'll fit.

I'll send him a message, and ask him to measure them for me.

I'm sure the depth is fine. I'm more concerned about the width and fitting in the holes made for the stock bulbs.

I had to do that for my LED sidemarkers. Bulbs were a tiny bit too wide. Actually I just carefully used a sharp knife, but a drill would have worked all the same.

I put LEDs in my side markers, and they were way too big.  So... I just jammed them in there really hard, and they fit. :)

That's so weird though that they would be too wide.  Because, aren't they made to fit as 921s? idk
