    Go led when you find some. And I believe the 6" ovals are more popular. Just google "6" led back up light"

    I am in the same boat. Id like set not to crazy bright but something that i can also see behind me as well. I know that the Maxxima 18 led oval lights are worthless for back up lights. I've seen alot of them but am not sure how bright they are and i don't really want to keep ordering lights that wont work for me.

    If you have the budget, check out the sound off 500 lumen led flood lights or 1000 lumen (square) flood lights. They are pricy but they light up whatever they are pointed at like day
