Rear Backup lite Halogen Replacement...

I was driving some peeps home the other night and had to backup in an unlit street. I couldn't see a damn thing.

I want to possibly replace the backup lights with some significantly brighter halogens.

Anyone know the bulb designation so I can order replacements from lite swap?

I'm also looking for halogen replacements for the fog lights in the sports package projectors.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

my local Autozone has halogen backup bulbs. i've also seen them at pepboys and kragen. not sure about the size though.

i think raybrig makes a 35w 7440 bulb (if that's even the right one)

SP fogs are also H1?! sure they're not H3?
the non-SP fogs are definitely H1.

Well their 55 watts. The H1's are 55 watts. I'd assume they were the same. Nobody's said anything otherwise.

I replaced my fog in the headlight housing, they are definitely H3.

The lamps in the non-SP package (in the bumper) are definitely H1.
