I installed these from amazon as well and mine also come close to our touch the housing. They are very visible even when off. Also, the seem to create a rolling line effect on the backup screen at night. Has anyone else noticed this?

The work great and light up very bright, though I might return them for shorter ones if anyone has any suggestions.
I get same rolling line effect

Glad to hear it wasn't just my eyes! Anyway, I removed them and will be sending them back. Mainly because they looked goofy being so close to the taillight lens. I recommend anyone ordering replacement backup lights go with an overall length of 2" or less based on my measurements.

All this talk of resistors but no specs. Any ideas on what size resistor (ohm/watts) to use??

Oracle sells a 6 ohm 50 watt "equalizer" resistor. Goes between positive and negative leads. Theoretically this should equal the load of an incandescent bulb but bulb specs need to be checked to determine if this is correct.
