When I click on his link to those bulbs, Amazon says does not fit a 2022 Maverick?

Most likely because they haven't adjusted the web site to include the Maverick. There have been a bunch of people getting it and using it without problems.

No hyperflash when turn signal is on?

Where is the link to order the LED bulbs? Sorry, I missed it.

This swap was just the reverse lights.

As far as I know there is no solution yet for the brake/turn signal bulbs. You would likely need a resistor to match the prior bulb wattage so they don’t hyperflash/show the bulb is out. Diode Dynamics was working on one @SgtLip might know more.

these are the LEDs that fit WT21/7W spec on the F150. Believe they’re the same as Maverick.

I do not have my rig yet so cannot try. https://www.diodedynamics.com/rear-turn-tail-light-leds-for-2021-ford-f-150-four.html

Looks nice - I may have missed it but did you upgrade the white lights above the truck bed also?

I plan to do this but also hoping for an LED option for the tail lights/blinkers. Aside from cost savings (or parts shortages) I don't know why they went LED for headlights but incandescent for tail lights.

This might be a question more for the Lighting subforum, but has anyone put one of those tailgate light strips on? It would interfere with accessing the spare tire but I'm sure there will be lots of aftermarket options eventually..

EDIT: I did see another post of your's where you did upgrade the white lights to LEDs on the 3rd brake light.

I was confused by thread title. I skimmed the video, and I see now.. this should be LED reverse light replacement not LED tail light.

Technically it should be titled Swapping Backup Lights from Bulbs to LED's. That is what he changed.

Thanks for sharing! I just ordered a couple of lights, thanks to your video.

Now I just need a truck to go with them...

Just did this install.

Quick and easy, much better reverse lighting now. One recommendation I have is to use a regular screw driver to reassemble the taillight. I was using a driver and it overtorqued a bit when putting the light back on pulling the taillight slightly out of line.

Loosed it up and finished it with a regular screw driver. Much more control.
