Going with a Diode Dynamics or other reputable LED bulb manufacturer will be a safe bet.
I do not have LED reverse lamp bulbs, but from what I've read, they have been generally beneficial.
I have heard that the issues with LED lights are with the "brake" lights. the lower power in the LED's makes the Eyesight think there is a fault with the brake system.
Also if you do the turn signals, a resistor is needed.
The only thing I have heard about the "backup" lights is some don't fit and some are not an improvement in output.
I did but D.D. fog lights and ORDERED their SL! low beams. But their high lummen backups are $90... So I figures Id do a little looking into backup lights...
Still hoping to get input from those that have upgraded their backup lights.
