I have a 2011 Ford F-150 Super Cab STX, I find the original backup lights are lacking in lighting up the path I need to drive in reverse, the brake lights do a better job. I already tried replacement LEDs that were touted to be much brighter than the stock 194 bulbs the truck comes with, they were not.
What I want to do as add 2 lights like this set here. If I do, since the other bulbs, the 194 drew only 25 watts each and these proposed lights draw 55 watts each. I believe this will be an issue. Is this the case if I tie them in with the existing back up light circuitry?
I see there are lights ready to go in as backup lights, and they are double the cost. The link is just a representation, Ebay has them for less.
So the next question will be, if I use the fog lights, by the time I get the harness so it can handle the load and work off the backup light circuit, would I be better off just getting the ready to install backup light kit?
