Got new LED reverse lights

So first, I didn't find these on my own. They were linked in another thread then Pedro sent me the link.

Anyways, I got them and they are awesome. What makes them different from normal LED bulbs is that it has a projector at the end to throw the light in a focused beam.

I know, I know, I have pics. I compared my VLEDs just because

Haha...I too have ordered similar 3156 cree LED back-ups. Except just last night opened up a case on not receiving them yet. lol.

Do you guys have not close up and not lighted up pics of them installed? I ordered ones with silver behind the projector instead of the black.

Never owned heavily tinted side glass huh? Either that or apartment living must be tough...

BTW....According to your logic, these LED's talked about here in this thread combined with my FOUR 27w LED 5" spot and flood pattern lights must be deemed "overkill". You can never have "too much" back up light. Especially with even just stock privacy rear glass.

Typically people use both side mirrors and the windshield mounted mirror when backing their vehicle up, depending on terrain/surroundings. And also during normal street driving going forward. Perhaps I as well as 75%+ of licensed drivers have been doing it all wrong all this time??

#fiestytonight. lol.

Yeah if you don't mind. I'm about to pull trigger on the linked pair. Text 'em if it's easier. I just want to see the overall look inside '06+ lenses in case this deal I've already paid for falls through.

lol chill bro.

no i dont own a vehicle with heavily tinted side glass. because its illegal here.
I dont use my rear view mirror to back up either. side mirrors only. thats just what im used to since i drive rigs with no rear view mirror.

not saying these are pointless, just not something i can see being useful for me.

Screw using mirrors. Does anyone else just turn around and look out the back glass?

Shane basically summed it up but Yeah my windows are tinted. I only used my mirrors to back up I never turn my body to look out the back window, that's what the rear view is for. Before these LEDs I'd have to open my rear slider lol
