LED Reverse/ Backup lights in rear bumper step cavity?

Recommended Posts

This is a great Mod, might do mine one of these days. I'm thinking this should be a Sticky at the top of the page, it definitely has a lot of attention

Also is a resistor needed for the b/u leds?

As long as it does not blink, IE turn signals, then no resistor is needed.  I replaced my cargo and reverse lights with LEDs, back in January, no issues.

Old thread I know but one thing I would love to see if possible is some pictures of the lighting from in the cab with tinted windows. I’d like to do this mod since I can hardly see out my mirrors with my tint. Most pictures are from the outside or the back up camera but is there significant change while looking through your window to back up. Any help would be appreciated.

I have dark tint on my truck, I'm not sure how well the pics will turn out but I'll try and get some if youre still interested. The front tint matches the deep dark tint in the back.

Are those lights on your mirrors too or just the puddle lights?

Looks good. It's funny, you don't realize the value until you need them or at least I didn't.🤣

Just got the lights I'm going to use for my bumper steps. They should be installed by the end of the week, provided things are still calm at work. Will post pics and lights when done.

 

Here's what I went with https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LYHD6RC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

The lights seem nice and solid, plus they seemed to be well sealed.

Those are close to 4 inches.....is there 4 inches of flat space on the corner steps ?

I think the KC Cyclones will be the way I go, I'll just tie them into the bed light leads that run up through the same cavity as the rear tail lights..  Thanks for the thread.
