Anybody have any success with aftermarket hitch lights or other lights to brighten up reverse?
New tail light bulbs haven't solved the issue.
If not using the camera it's hard to see out the rear/side view mirrors when going in reverse.

Maybe it's just old age....

Thanks

Might try the Putco tailgate light bar. It has a white light mode in reverse.

FWIW- replace the backup light (filament bulb) with an LED bulb - less than $10 per set and much cheaper and faster solution that adding an LED Light strip. I did this and now my backup light is 3x brighter. BTW - I also have an LED light strip under the tailgate. Replacing the factory bulb was a better solution for me.

I just ordered a set. $6.99.

That link shows a dual element light, also saying do not use for back up. This works for a back up light?

Geeze, those SuperBright's are $15.00 (US) each.

Nevermind I see the Amazon (which I think are the same) are only $13.00 each.
