Reverse light bulb recommendation..



I have an SUV with the back windows tinted and in the night I dont see the reverse lights light up behind me that well. Can anyone recommend a better type of bulb then oem? are LED bulbs better?

LED's might help since they light output is more direct... but I doubt it'll do much good.

Un-tint your windows

theres a company out there called superbrightled's, andbelieve me they are bloody bright! They may have a bulb that can help.

Another idea could be to have like as an example a aftermarket foglight installed behind ur bumper, so that it illuminates the area around you when the car is in reverse?

Princess Auto may still carry those backup bulbs that have the brighter wattage along with those that make the annoying sound to warn those that you are backing up.
