Default Reverse Tail Light H.I.D's

I have only notice a handful of members with hid kits installed as there reverse lights. I just brought a rear view camera and thought this would be a good time to upgrade the reverse light to help with viewing.

I have done some homework but i would like to see what members know about what is needed.

Thanks in advance

Cory

I was under the impression that it's just a regular plug-n-play kit.

From what Nick said, it is just plug-n-play. Thought he just wanted feedback on them.

I doubt if Nick has hid reverse bulbs. I don't remember reading he has done that. It is the other guy who is his twin in Dallas that has the hid reverse bulbs. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember reading if Nick has done it. Hopefully he comes here and chime soon.

The guy who has them said it is plug and play. And he also said something like he made a seperate switch to be able to operate the lights any time, whether car is in drive or what. Hopefully they both come in here and give some input.

Ok, my fault, just checked, Abdallahasmar has them, Nick ordered the LED reverse lights which are still pretty bright, but not as bright as the HID reverse lights.

I put led in my reverse lights. They are a little bit brighter than stock but to use them with a backup camera I would go with the HID

I just bought the plug and play hid kit made for the reverse, I believe the only difference from a regular kit is that it has a lower watt ballast. I did encounter a problem with the kit thou, it kept blowing a fuse every time I went from park to drive. I bought a relay harness to try to stop it from blowing my fuses but haven't installed it yet.
