New LED Back-up Bulbs

Another good eBay deal. Two 24-LED bulbs for $8.59 shipped. Look good so far, it's not completely dark yet. The stock bulbs were too dim. Almost yellow looking.

they look like 3528 smds.. which aren't that great...

smd 5050 are 3x better because they are a tri-chip design. and if you can also get a bulb with a cree XP on the end it will also be better.

there is also 5630 smd chips which are 1.5x brighter then the 5050s.

also some other bulbs coming out will be a cob (chips on board) design that are going to be brighter even yet.

always remember, you get what you pay for.


A company I deal with is coming out with a T10 COB. estimated late summer.

Believe me, I wasn't expecting much for the price. I'm happy with colour and brightness compared to the stock bulbs. We'll see how they last.

Those T10 COB bulbs look very interesting

Good looking mod, for less than $10 shipped, it's worth a try.

Love the yellow arrow on the T10 ad Travis, I would have totally missed that as being a logo if they hadn't labelled it as such. lol

Update: I took Travis' advice and tried some new LED bulbs with a Cree XP chip and projector on the end. Price was certainly right and the shipping was free.

Very nice at night. They actually project a bit of a cone of light on my driveway and light up everything else.

I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Thanks Travis (Viper238)
