Reverse lights - brighter bulbs?

Is anyone aware of a brighter bulb for the Defender's reverse lights?

On my previous vehicle, I bought them from an aftermarket catalog. It added just enough extra light (~ 20% incremental) to make a difference, but not blind anyone or cause excess heat. A simple bulb swap-out is really what I'm after at this point....vs. a seperate lamp or wiring change.

Thanks./RFA

This company makes halogen replacements for most back-up bulbs. I run them and they work great.

If you haven't done it already, don't forget to paint the inside of the light housing silver with some type of "Bumper Chrome" or other nicely shiny paint. You would be surprised the difference that it makes.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
