LED 921 Reverse & Cargo Bulbs

Recommended Posts

I replaced my back up lights in my 2016 with the Philips 921 LED. They are brighter and match the color of the under rail bed LED lights, not near as yellow as stock. However, the light throws farther (directly back) and does not light up the ground directly behind the bumper (not as much downward light) as OEM. So I'm still getting used to be them. fcb1ea6335d3e0cadd4945f57a85846b.jpgaa5ea2251bd229bb3b32b3cab6918bff.jpg3689aa27a781442fe0438264e24f6394.jpgb6ff2b443d18a627f7412eaf2370d0ea.jpg

 

They light up the ground further back better however. The throw from side to side is slightly better

No, they were not plug n play. I did not use them. I am trying to modify them to get them to fit but its not going like I expected so I don't think it will end up as an option

I just swapped my reverse, cargo, and 3rd brake light with the Philips 921 LEDs and WOW is all I can say. This photo doesn't do it justice, with LED on the left and stock on the right.

 

Went from an ugly yellow spot right behind the truck to pure white lighting up the neighbors yard across the street.

 

The cargo light is like a spotlight.

 

Wow.

Got my Philips 921s today and i must say they do look a lot better on the vehicle. I cant say for certain about the overall light out put being higher, since i didn't do a direct comparison before switching out the standard bulbs. Blah blah long story short I like them. Anyway here are a couple phones for you to judge. All photos are with the parking break on and no break lights. Still waiting on the Philips 194s for the plate lights
