Default Plug & Play Reverse Bulbs
Hey folks. So I know a lot of you have issues with the factory reverse bulbs on your Raptors. Some of you are familiar with our CrystaLux Replacement Bulbs but for those who are not... check out these shots from a customer's truck we were just sent. He could not say enough about how awesome they were. Quick and easy to install and they gave him 1,800 raw lumen of lighting power behind him. He was absolutely amazed at the light they threw. And they are just small replacement bulbs. On my own F150 I never even use my Baja Designs Squadron Pros that are mounted in my bumper (sorry Bailey!) because there is no need to really. The reverse bulbs work really well.

The bulbs are our own house-brand (CrystaLux) and are available here: CrystaLux Reverse LED Lights (921) for Ford F-150 (2007-2014) - 4x4TruckLEDs.com

I'd recommend the CL90 (900 lumen each) bulbs. BUT we also have CL40 (400 lumen each) and CL60 (620 lumen each) available.

Any pics of the lower lumens? 900 seems a bit much for normal duty

I'd be curious to know, as well...

No hyperflash. Since it's just a reverse bulb (constant power) it does not hyperflash. You only get hyperflashing if you use a bulb that changes voltage/power (low power for taillights that switch to higher power upon breaking).

So it's direct plug and play. If you don't have LED cargo lights already you can also swap those out. Same bulb size, 921 as your reverse and MAN what a difference. It really lights up the bed of the truck.

Good to know, thanks for clarifying. I had no idea that constant power was the key!

Incredible performance! A little pricey at $65, but I guess you get what you pay for and this should be a one time upgrade.

For comparison purposes, does anyone know the lumen output of standard incandescent 921 bulbs? Knowing that will help me choose between the 900, 620, and 400 lumen LEDs.

Yes, of course. So you might want to delete this statement off the product description: "Note: Some installations may require LED Load Resistors to prevent hyperflashing. This is normal as LED Bulbs pull less current then traditional halogen bulbs." Looks like a boilerplate statement, as standard 921 bulbs are incandescent, not halogen.
