Default reverse lights on a 2009

Has anyone successfully changed out the reverse lights on a 2009 to LED? I found a kit for the 2008, but haven't found one for 2009. They take the same bulbs but state that it will only work from 2005-2008.

Those look really nice, but the lights I was referring to are in the tails. The clear reverse lights that come on and light up behind you when you put the shifter in reverse.

Here's a pic of my reverse lights. They are the Putco Pure LED 360 series, part# 3156. They are super bright, I love them.

Those look great, exactly what I am looking for, but for a 2009.

Not to sound like a smartass, but isn't a bulb a bulb regardless of what year it's in?

The housings sometimes differ, so some bulbs aren't universal

Ahhh, I see - So as long as the LED manufacturers don't make their actual bulbs (LEDs) larger than stock incandescent bulbs, then they'll work, but if they don't you've got fitment issues...

This link is a guide to the replacement bulbs for any vehicle. You can see the taillight bulb numbers are different from the 07 rams to the 09 rams:

Sometimes LED bulbs are not compatible as they draw less power. I've heard mixed stories of whether reverse lights would register as being out by the EVIC. I would rather not spend the money if they won't work.

It looks like 3B Specialties has the bulbs you're looking for:

According to that Bulb Replacement Guide, these are what you're looking for.
