Lets see your reverse lights!

Hi guys, looking to add on some reverse lights as my led bulbs don't do the job very well. Trying to avoid hanging led pods from the rear bumper, rather have them tucked underneath the bed and hidden but not sure where to put them so they are still lighting behind the truck as much as possible......but still hidden and clean looking. What are your thoughts? pics are appreciated! Thanks

Single LED white bar under bed lip or on bottom of bumper. LED reverse lights work nice unless windows are tinted 5% then won't make a diff. Other option is square pods like you said.

I considered an LED bar but was concerned about it disappearing if it was hanging by the bumper.

This is my setup. Got my bulbs from superbrightleds.com
Also have the interior dome light and it's pretty bright as well.

I have a fire and ice LED light bar between my bumper and tailgate, it has the usual red LED's that work with the brakes and turn signals, but it also has very bright white LED's all along it's length hooked up to my backup lights.

Not sure which bulbs you are using but when I went to the RECON LED tail lights they had an optional LED backup light bulb that was available at additional cost. It is very bright. I'm sure an off-road led light bar would be brighter but then as you've mentioned: problems with mounting, looks and protection from breakage .

I've had this problem too but I can usually get away with just kicking on my bed cargo light
