LED Reverse Lights for 5th Gen 4Runner

Reverse Lights LED Swap on 5th Gen Toyota 4Runner – Ultra Bright LED Reverse Lights

One major light you want to replace is the back-up/reverse light bulbs. By replacing your reverse lights as well as your license plate lights with new bulbs, you will have better vision in reverse at night. For even better reverse lighting, you should take a look at the tail as turn mod by Diode Dynamics.

When you are looking at your dash screen in reverse, it is incredibly hard to see in dark conditions. Sometimes I don’t even use the reverse camera because it’s so dark. You may have experienced this as well.

License plate lights are a good start, but the reverse lights are great for night visibility. Going from stock bulbs in the reverse light housing to ultra-bright LED bulbs, your visibility will be better. The light output on these ultrabright LED bulbs is much better than the factory bulbs.

Not only is your visibility better, but the color of lights are better. The color of these ultra bright LED reverse lights are crystal white.

    Thanks for the instructions on how to switch them out.. I’m hoping to change these out soon – I agree the lights on the Runners are not bright at all. Thinking of also buying the adaptor to switch the brake/reverse lights for even more light!

      Roseva,
      Are you talking about the “turn as tail” mod? I have seen the Diode Dynamics Tail as Turn mod. Is there another kit out there that you recommend or is this the kit you are talking about?

    Walk-throughs are the best. Look is a great idea, more specifically after I got my rear windows tinted and now it’s dark as night back there this might help. @kgagne3

    Does this mod interfere or throw a dash light due to the bulb swap? Sometimes vehicles don’t see the LED bulbs and bring up an indicator on the dad that a bulb is out.

      For the reverse lights, no. We did not get any dash lights on our 2014 TEP.
