I have been wanting to get new reverse bulbs for a while now. I want something that is bright, so people behind me can see me reversing even better. It would be nice if the light was a pure white as well. What are some brands to check out? Also what bulb size am I looking for?

make your "my photos" public, we can't see them, jsut red x's. go change your settings in yahoo to public, and then edit your post, and take out everything after .jpg i think that should work.

you should be able to see the pics when you log in to the clubrsx site and then go to this page.

I just typed in 7440 on ebay and purchase the cheapest set of bulbs I kind find being that it's only my reverse. That was like 6 months ago, the bulbs still work perfectly, nicely clear whitsih color.

reverse lights

The reverse light bulbs are 21w.

The PIAA bulbs that jstn describes as "amazing" are 27w.

I wonder if JSTN did any comparison testing as the wattage isn't much more than the standard. The PIAA bulbs are whiter but not much brighter.

I have a halogen with twice the wattage but in comparison to the standard bulb it's hard to see a difference.
