LED reverse lights

I know there are quite a few members who have upgraded everything to LED. Are there any LEDs on the market that made a worthwhile improvement for your reverse lights?

I have a set of CREE leds in my reverse lights, about 3 times brighter than stock, and also super bright white color.

I have the 120's from Buggman. I don't know if the light output is any better but it looks a hell of a lot cooler.

I have the CREE LEDs too. They are projected and are nice!

Dan, are those bright enough that you can see out the back window of your topper?

Do you have a link to the product by chance?

They are, I like them quite a bit. As for the link, those are similar. But they don't look the same quality of the ones I have. I do believe mine for close to 40 for the pair.

The dually output seems a little too narrow to be a useful backup light, but it does look good
