Icon3 Need BRIGHT back up lights

This isnt for my ranger but it shouldnt make a differents what vehicle it goes on. I just got my windows tinted 5% like what I have on my ranger. With my ranger I just added 2 driving lights from walmart and they were just enough to see, but with my other truck they arent going to be enough. With this truck being higher, longer, and having a rake I cant see ****. I need some bright lights that aren't very big because I hate the look of backup lights. Would I be best off going leds or sticking with a normal bulb? What lights do you guys recommend?

I picked up a set of 'tractor' lights at autozone for $15 a piece. their about 3 inches in diameter, 55 watt, and are a self contained unit. the housing is rubber with a built in mounting braket.

Something to keep in mind, factory wiring on any vehical is just enough to carry the load of the factory lights. DO NOT attempt to power your new back up lights using the factory harness. Instead, run a new line from the battery to feed the lights. then use the back up light wire on the harness as your switch.
