HP48: This bulb is non-polar, CK compatible, with 48 Epistar 3014 LED chips. Thanks to the cap on the top, the light from this High Power Bulb is shined backwards and away from the bulb, not straight out. This means the output is excellent, because it uses the vehicle's housing completely, which then shines the light much more uniformly.

HP11: Four side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 5W-rated LED chip on top, which is projected by a lens for maximum effective brightness. The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides superior heat diffusion for long life.

XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 3156 terminal, with a locking base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 3156 bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.


Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb: 

HP48: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
HP11: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP80: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens. BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  1. XP80 Amazing Product Review by Ray

    This was my first order I placed with Diode Dynamics and it was fast and easy. I've had these installed for a few weeks now and I love them. I ordered the XP80 (510 lumens) back up lights to replace my OEM bulbs on my 2012 Silverado 2500HD. I used to add rear facing fog light for snow removal at night I hated this option due to snow build up and ice damage to the light, this is no longer an issue. Simple plug and play in the factory lens, super bright, great quality. (Posted on 5/9/16)

  2. Great Purchase!! Review by RADO1500

    This was my first order I placed with Diode Dynamics and it was fast and easy. Ive had these installed for a few weeks now and I love them. I ordered the HP11 (310 lumens) back up lights to replace my OEM halogen bulbs on my '13 Silverado and they are more than what I expected. Simple plug and play, very bright, good quality, really fast shipping from Diode Dynamics! (Posted on 3/1/16)

  3. NICE! Review by TK

    I've started the process of converting majority of my original halogen bulbs over to LEDs and recently purchased these back up lamps (second stage). These bad boys are bright!!! I recently put tint on my back window and they are nearly limo, however now I can see when backing up in the dark. Love these lights and they look cool as well. Also they are great at night when you unlock your truck. (Posted on 2/10/15)

  4. awesome! Review by OregonDMAX

    I bought a pair of the standard reverse lights. Not knowing how bright they would be I just stuck with the cheapest ones, I could have gone with a brighter one but all I can say is even the lowest model puts out easily 2 times more light then stock bulbs. These lights are great. Even though I am completely happy I would recommend to anyone in the future especially if you have tinted windows to go with the middle choice at least and if you have a limo tint back window you might as well go all the way.

  5. Awesome Reverse Lights Review by Ian

    These work great as backup lights. Much brighter than the stock bulbs. This is especially convenient if you have the truck set to turn these lights on when it unlocks at night. Highly recommended. (Posted on 5/12/13)

  6. Bright! Review by Michael

    I purchased these lights before purchasing some offroad lights and just facing them backwards because I needed light to see through my 5% tint; all I can say is it was a GREAT idea. These lights are Bright (stage 2), I can easily see what's behind me like its daylight. For the Tinted windows out there it's a must.

Backup LEDs are a direct replacement. Just change the bulb! You will not need any resistors or other accessories.

Remove your factory bulb

  1. 1. Access your backup bulb. You may need to pull back the trunk/cargo carpet and/or unscrew the visible nuts holding the light in.
  2. 2. Remove the socket from the tail light by twisting counterclockwise.
  3. 3. Remove the factory bulb by unclipping and pulling it out of the socket.


Install your new LED bulb

  1. 1. Plug new LED bulb into socket by pushing it into place.
  2. 2. Test the bulb to ensure proper function.
  3. 3. Insert socket back into tail light, and reassemble as necessary. That's it!
