Reverse lights?
 
I ordered some flush brake lights the other day thinking I could get away without reverse lights for a while but wheeling in the pitch black last night corrected me.
Anyone recommend a set of reverse lights that are nice and bright? I'd like to put them right below the brake lights. I'm looking to spend around 30. I see a bunch on amazon but just don't know how bright they are.

And id really like them to be low power leds so I don't need a relay.

You're not going to find good lights for $30. Have you looked at the price for LED units?!? I have pipe lights from Delta welded to my tire carrier. They've been very good.

I know 30 wont get me a good pair. I was hoping to get a good review on a set of the cheap no name ones on amazon. I guess I'll be giving the review because I went ahead and ordered the 2.5" ones from the "almostwholesale" shop of amazon. Crossing my fingers that theyre bright enough. Figure they cant suck more than the OEM set...

Live and learn I guess.

AutoZone has some small auxiliary lights for $20 that are 55w that would work.

Maybe you could double sticky tape them on to find out if they'll work for you before doing an install.

I'm sure those would be plenty bright but i just think its too much work to run a relay. rather keep it nice and simple. I guess if mine arent bright enough I can always add some of these hooked up to a switch

I just installed a pair of led rigid dually's in the diffused beam pattern. Probably more then you are wanting to spend but well worth it in my opinion. These thing are awesome and wicked bright.
