reverse lights

I put 4 inch recessed led tails in my jeep now I need reverse lights. I have been considering kc Apollo pro 6 inch in either a fog or driving pattern. If anyone has a recommendation that would be great.

imho, a fog pattern would be your best option in a rear light. it will give you a broader, but somewhat shorter, light pattern. as you won't be going fast at all, you really don't need the distance of a driving light, imho. i use a set of halogen fog lights mounted to the bed topper on my little ranger pu. they do very, very well. and i have them wired to a separate switch so i don't have to be in reverse to have them on. comes in handy when unloading the bed or lighting up a camping spot.

I'd go with the high output round or oval LED flush mount. I have a set of 3" round and they are like headlights in back.
