Was planning to do this about a month ago. Finally got around to it.

Comparison with Halogen:

Ebay! You need 2 bulbs sized 3156 or 3157 , they are the same..

The bulbs I bought have 18 of the new "SMD" led's .. and they are the multidirectional type.

Good luck, let me know if you have any other questions.

You want to get the 3156 the 3157 are dual mode bulbs used for parking lights that double as break or turn signals.

I found these on ebay. Do you think they will be to bright because my lenses on my backup lights are tinted.

just ordered a pair! looking forward to installing these!
HAS ANYONE CHANGED THEIR HIGHBEAM LIGHTS? PICS?
I WAS THINKING OF CHANGING MINE TO RED (LOL)
NOT TO FLASH THEM BUT WHENEVER YOU UNLOCK THE TRUNK FROM THE FOB...THE LIGHTS FLASH & I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE COOL LOOKING

Not that I know off, I'd go against swapping the high beams to anything other than halogen. They are usually needed for emergencies.

I was gonna buy those but thought they might have been too tall for the socket.

Do you have any pictures of them installed?

Try the 68 LED bulbs if your backups are tinted.

Remember to consider clearance. I dont remember very well, but I doubt those will work because they look too tall.

Same thing I thought which stopped me from buying them, but a member posted just above that he has them installed.

OH WOW

They do fit....consider that an up close picture you'll see online will make it look much bigger than what it actually is.

I would go against anything overseas. I bought mines from SuperBrightLEDs.com. They have warranty with every bulb, so if it fails simply send it back. I doubt you can do that with over sea orders. Mines were about $8 a bulb.
