Anyone have an LED reverse light?

I'm looking for another clear LED reverse light like ECR used to sell and that we did a group buy on here a few years back. The one I need is the 837/04/02.

Anyone?

Yeah, it has to be round to match the one I've already got. I've got a set of five as for a NAS 90, but I want to put them on my new 130 with red/amber/clear on each side.

Worst case I just have to buy two of the OEM ones like came on the SVX, but these truck lite units are nice with screw covers, etc.

I think Truck lite discontinued these units while I wasn't paying attention.

I used the wipac led NAS style LED.
Works great but the Hella worklight is the best back up assistant I've ever had.

^THIS. I wired up some switched LED worklights in the rear as well, and tied one of them into the reverse light...makes a world of difference.

I use two LED flood lights mounted in the upper corners of the roof. They are actually useful for seeing behind you!!

May I also recommend the Vision X....$103.99 off of ebay. I love it. This is what ECR uses now.

(my bad, I confused the cost of the real vision x with the knock off....I just looked up the receipt.)

I know there are superior solutions, but I'm trying to match this light. I don't need Ron to log on and remind me that I'm anal.

I've got the set of five just like this, but I want to make it an even six. These lights have a particular pattern on the lens and have nice little anti-tamper screw covers.

I wish I had paid $20! Either way, a great reverse light, three different beam patterns, and very low amp draw. That's a nice little set up you've got there as well!

By the way, dimensionally, they fit perfectly inside a standard hitch, that is if you're not using it. I have it set up as such in the hitch on the P38.

EDIT: $100 shipped, not $20. It was one of the few things Urban got right!

Jim, since you have the kit with the 5-lights already, are you doing both left & right bottom lights in "clear" (instead of the fog light in red)?

I'm actually thinking of switching my old rectangular-style lights (for the reverse & fog) to the round as well, but was just curious how you were going to configure them since the set of 5-lights it seems comes with the clear reverse light already.

Check the Perei NAS LED offerings. WIPAC LEDs have a different style to their brake/turn signals.

Right, I warn to have a matching pattern on each side - I'll move the rear fog under the tub and I want to add a third brake light Dow there too. Haven't quite worked that one out yet.

why would you put a third light down low? The idea is they are high so they can be seen through the car in front ..

Down low on a pickup is up high on a car. I think the 130 lights are a bit high in their stock locations.
