Default Looking for Brighter Backup Lighting

I am in need or brighter backup lighting for by 2008 PT Cruiser. I replaced the standard bulbs with a set of $20 super-bright LED's, but that didn't help. Does anyone know of an upgrade replacement light kit... I was actually thinking of adding some LED floods that are used for trailers... I just need a little more light when backing up into my very dark driveway at night. I saw some used lights on ebay made by a company called TYE(?) I think, but cannot find them online.

Brighter bulbs will probably require more watts ( higher AMPS) and could play havoc with wire (its designed to carry a certain load-AMPS) and maybe even the computer or TIPM. (not sure if it gets its power through the Computer or the TIPM...)

Look for "projector" bulbs in the same wattage. Makes a heck of a difference.

Also, since you have a Gen2 PT, any LED bulbs you get, look for CANbus safe.
