Trying to find a sivlerstar bulb to fit the back up light my truck. It has a 3047 bulb in it but I can't find a silverstar 3047 but I can find 3057 silverstars. They look identical, what's the difference??

If I can't get better lighting using this route, is there any other way to go about this?

I think its the same, just brighter in specifications. So it should work fine really.

3157 will give you a TON of choices. It's a very common European bulb.
