I'd like to find some short, wide "Driving lights" that I could fit in behind the OEM lens and put the xenons in. Something like these:



Do you sell xenons that fit H3 housings?

Yeah, assuming they are 3156 like I seem to find for most years F350, I have an SMD 27 LED setup per bulb that should be a huge improvement (as much as you can get out of a tiny housing reverse light). Those are $30 for a pair.

stock reverse light housings are not designed for "really bright". most plow guys I have chatted with have gone with auxiliary lights. something like these: http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?pk=140&pname=Part%20%23%20264150%20-%20Projector%20Back-Up%20Reverse%20Lights&p_cat=46

that being said, I have a set of Ryan's LED's in my reverse housings, and while far brighter/cleaner looking than stock, the increase in visibility when reversing is not nearly as good as a true auxiliary - aesthetically speaking they are much nicer/cleaner looking and they are more noticeable than stock to others viewing them (and obviously cheaper than those recon's)

With an old rheostat style dimmer like my XJ has, once I started to convert so many bulbs to LED, there wasn't enough resistance to dim them anymore. I guess you could get a much smaller rheostat, but in general, the LED's don't seem to dim as well (as with the cars that have "opera" lighting)

Oh yeah, there is no way that these retro LED's can compare to an aux setup or a "light bar" type LED configuration. Double stock output is still junk as far as seeing really well in bad conditions.

IIRC a silverado has:

2 festoon map lights ($10)
2 door 5 164 style ($10)
2 footwell 164 style ($10 for 5 led units, or $16 for 8 led units)
1 dome light (24 led) $12

So either $42 or $48 depending if he wants the brighter footwells or not.

I also have the daytime running lights for a silverado, they look great for $30 a pair (27 led each)

Thats not bad, though tjontherox is working with panels that have 24 of those in one block and they are $10 from me for 24 vs 2.99 + shipping for 1. They even have 3M tape already on them, clean area, stick and wire.

how well do the SMD light strips hold up to the weather? i'm looking for something to hook up under my bed rails for a bed light so i can get stuff out of the bed at night... might also consider some for the interior... (77 chevy K20 4x4)

The led strip on my Daytona's license plate light has been on there for a year, but it isn't outside much. I'm going to put a modular light on the underside of the side mirror of my lebaron as a "puddle light" when I open the doors, that should see all kinds of water.

which one exactly? i'm just worried if i put in all the work and cash up front, then i turn around and go through the mud and water and all the other elements, and they fry out or quit working... i think recon makes a kit for it but i'm not paying their prices for things...

Which modular light? The only one I sell, it has 24 SMDs. The strip for the license plate is just the $5 ones, but Its not up to the task of rock lighting from a lumens output standpoint.

You have LEDs to replace standard 194s? Need those for the gauges in the Escort.
