Default F150leds backup light bars installed!

I have had many F150's in the past and have always put silverstar reverse bulbs in them for a very slightly better backup light than factory. Which was still very poor light output. Especially in the rear view camera. So when I got my newest truck (2014 Screw xlt 4x4) I decided to put some real light back there!
I did a lot of research on them and finally settled on F150LEDs.com. I figure if they're going to specialize in what I love to drive (F150's) then I should give them a shot and am I glad I did! They're customer service was great with all my newbie questions. These reverse lights affordable, small and put out some serious light! They also seem to be very well built and have handled everything I've thrown at them so far! No plastic parts or any of that junk. They're solid! I installed both of these lights in just over 30 minutes by following the how to video on the F150leds website. It was super easy!
I like them so much that I've already ordered a front light bar. Can't wait! I'll post pics when I get that done too.
Anyway, enough talk, here's some pics...







Cam view with factory reverse bulbs only

Cam view w/F150LEDs



The barrels are approx 50' back



The dirt hill is approx 70' back


View through the side mirror...


View from outside the truck, looking back at a gate


Hope these pics help some of you guys out there that have been wanting some REAL backup light without spending hundreds of dollars. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Here's the website if you guys haven't heard of these lights before.

I think I might need to install the led bar as well. Easy to remove if need be too.

Yea, if you have a ratcheting 10mm end wrench you can take them both off in
Just a couple minutes.
I was worried about mine getting crushed when crossing a creek or low spot because my hitch drags but so far they've been out of the way, even the times my hitch has dragged since installing the LEDs.

Click the image to open in full size.

Those look exactly like the ones I get from Amazon for 39 dollars a pair. I love them!

I did this months ago. The only issue I had is with the supplied hardware, it is really cheap Chi-com junk. Snapped 2 hex bolts with barely any torque. The lights themselves are solid with a bright uniform color.


I used these lights, which seem to be the same exact ones the OP posted, just rebranded with a different name:

How do you have yours wired? Mine came in today.. Just haven't decided how to wire them.. Either a switch or just my trailer reverse wire.

I used the reverse lights as the trigger for a relay. Relay is in the engine bay.
