    Ok so I installed a utility body on my truck and I have had to change around the lighting that came on the body some.I had to add an extra tail light and in doing so I used my reverse light socket for the new tail light. I am going to cut a new hole for an oval light to replace the last reverse light. The tail lights/old reverse lights were 4 inch round regular trailer bulbs in the bumper. I have switched to LED tail lights and am looking for a brand or what kind of LED oval reverse light i should get to install. I tired what i thought would be a nice bright set of Maxxima 18 led reverse lights. They stunk almost no light what so ever. I'm not looking for crazy bright reverse lights just a set that will be similar to a regular back up light. Would any of the 10 LED lights on e-bay work? Like i said I'm not looking for crazy bright. I will take care of that with 2 sets of hi powered LED food/work lights. any help would be great.
