How much light for actually backing up do they produce, compared to stock?
Illegal to use for turn signals in ANY state, unless u change to amber or red.
White light to rear is a huge no-no on a forward moving vehicle.

I never had a set of stock lights that worked to compare to, but I can see pretty well backing up at night.... they are not super bright, but get the job done..

Very nice lights, and far better-looking than the stock units. Especially with taillight lenses that have the pot chrome trim! Might have to go this route on the '68s, since I have two good lenses and one good socket between the two trucks.

Replacement bulbs are cheap too! I have not had to replace one yet, but was looking into it just in case...

Or red ones for brake lights
If it were easy, everyone would do it.
