GTR Lighting’s 1,000 Lumen Reverse Lights are second to none.  These lights will outperform any bulb when it comes to reverse lights. People often don’t think about their reverse lights being an important feature for their vehicles.  However, the fact of the matter is they are very important to other drivers as well as yourself.  They are an indicator letting others know you plan to go in reverse or are currently moving in reverse.

Another huge benefit of these lights is they allow the driver to actually see where you are going in reverse, helping to avoid collisions and making trailer connections as easy as the middle of the day.  We have covered these lights before in an article if you want more information click here.
