LED reverse bulbs

Postby HuntingEscape - November 3rd, 2016, 9:30 am

Thinking about replacing the reverse bulbs with some LEDs for more light backing up at night. I am in michigan which at this time does not do vehicle inspections. Do i still the CAN bus bulbs or can i get away with the normal LED bulb?

I have normal LED bulbs in my reverse lights for my 08 Escape, and there's no errors.

Are they significantly brighter? If so, what bulbs did you use?

The ones I have are a little brighter, and the light is definitely whiter.

I bought mine from VLeds.com, but the ones I bought a few years ago are no longer available. I'm sure the replacement they have on their site now is probably better than what I have right now.
