JDM (non-LED) tails bulb socket situation

Can someone please help me? I bought my JDM tails from Japan and they didn't come with bulb sockets and of course my reverse lights USDM sockets are too small. I haven't been able to find anyone or any help on the forums on where exactly I can buy some bulb sockets for my install. I've emailed danny.pal99 about them but have yet to hear back from him. Until I do, would someone please let me know that there is hope for me?

Did you find out the bulb/socket size? I want to buy the larger sockets for a project I have coming up.

If I'm not mistaken the socket part # is 33515-S50-003 I found it on some older threads a while back... but definitely double check it though.

Thanks, looks like the right PN too according to lings. Bulb is 7440?

Planning to put some led switch backs in my axis tails and I need to know what size those larger sockets are! I assume they're the same ones as the larger JDM base tails.

I'm not sure, but it probably is b/c it's for the turn signal iirc... The brake I know for sure is socket/bulb 7443 with the dual voltage/filament (hi/lo).

Here is the bulb socket with the LED Light that I bought,
Remember to buy the LED Light type 7443 (NOT 7440).
Because 7443 had the capability for Dual Function (Brake and Tail Light),
while 7440 do NOT.

Check this thread too that just got bumped, for switchback lights they used a 3 wire socket (like the 7443). ---> https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/2nd-...3374-3157.html

Thanks for the info, the spot I'm putting the switch back into was originally the reverse light section. Basically the reverse light housing on my axis tail is going to double as a rear turn signal now. (Hence the switchback)

The v3 triton switchback sells in a 7440/7443 size so I guess I'm good either way!

The white portion will plug right into the reverse socket(the PN you gave me), while the amber will run in parallel with the axis led turn signal. (I'll just solder it directly into the wires. )

FYI the part number you posted is for the brake/running light. The correct on for the reverse light is 33513s50003
