reverse/backup light upgrade options??

So I replaced my AE lights and License Plate lights from Umintza and I love the product, but the only reverse light option they have is for 250$. I want to find a upgrade that is error free and is LED that is less than 100$. Let me know if you guys know of any companies that offer this upgrade and your experiences. Pics help too!

Thanks for your time

Mine isn't LED's.
I upgraded my backup lights to HID's, no codes.
This wasn't a purchased kit, I bought all the parts (HID's, relay, resistors), made a few brackets, mounted the parts, and wired it.
