Default Taillight LED Bulb 80watts 900 lumens

I have installed and tried a ton of 3157 taillight bulbs since I have my truck, seriously at least 10 sets of Bulbs, my last set I had on my truck was about the same output as a stock bulb. I have been looking for a brighter bulb and recently found these from autolumination and they are probably the brightest replacement bulb you can find, not cheap but they are way brighter than the stock 3157 which produces around 600 lumens, this LED Bulb with 16 Cree LED's produces 80 watts, around 900 lumens.

I picked these up from Autolumination

So if your looking for a bulb to replace your stock bulb and want something brighter these will work.

wondering how these will compare to the V LEDs Triton in real the real world

I am most concerned with their operation in bright sunlight.

Have you installed yours yet?

Nope since I had other LED bulbs for a while, I could always take daytime pics so you can see how bright they are, but pictures are relative to the camera etc, so they don't really give you a thought of how bright they really are since the camera will try to correct for crappy lighting or for too much lighting. All I can say is I tried around 7 sets of bulbs, after about 6 months I had found a set that was around a 600 lumans bulb, I liked them but wanted something stronger, and these 900 lumen 80watt ones are very strong.

Again its never easy to get the proper brightness effect with a phone camera but here they are lighting up my garage door with the brake lights, as you can see there pretty strong, and no problems seeing the in the day full sunlight, they are brighter than the OEM bulbs. These are the 3157 super white bulbs since the brake light housing is red.
