I decided to replace my reverse light bulbs with LEDs to match the Rigid Dually LEDs going in the rear bumper, so I figured I might as well review the bulbs. The bulbs appear to be decent quality, and have a convex lens at the end as pictured. There's no reflector inside the aluminum housing and have around a 30 degree beam when used by themselves. In the tail light housing they spread a bit more, but certainly not to the extent the stock bulbs do. They are bright though and would be an adequate replacement though the light is more focused behind the FJ than to the sides.
For a 5 minute project and $20, I'm very pleased with the resulting color which was my goal to start with.
The bulbs:

So you think they would be okay to run as standalone reverse lights?

They looks awesome compared to the stock bulbs!

I'd only say that they're adequate replacements. They're certainly as bright as the stock bulbs, but they don't flood as much. Of course, I found the stock bulbs to be completely inadequate with my dark tint, so...

Hmmm, interesting. So same amount of light but more "condensed" and less of of a flood. Is the COLOR of the light the same as stock or since its an LED, is it more white?? You cant beat a $20 mod but I want to make sure its worthwhile.

Hey Ryan, since youve had these in for a while now, how do you like them? Im thinking between those and my LED reverse lights on the ARB rack, I should be getting a pretty good amount of light when I back up. And it was just a simple plug-and-play bulb replacement, right?
