My new to me 2011 XTR S Crew

Took delivery about a week ago. Drives real nice. However I am surprised to see the rear view camera is so bad at night. I have some 50Watt cree led reverse lamps coming. I'll try that first.

Congrats on the new ride Jack, I've seen more than one owner replace the reverse lamps with Cree LED's.

Congrats on your new truck. I replaced my back up bulbs with some cheap LEDs off of eBay. They were better than stock but still not great. So I replaced those with some Cree LEDs with a rear facing projector lens. Super happy with these...the difference from stock is night and day....pun intended.

Isn't that a ripoff? I thought those were like $100 new?
