What's the difference between 2057 and 1157 tail lamp bulbs?  They
seem to work in the same applications.

The brightness difference is in the brake light and not the clearance light,
the difference is the 2057 has 32cp brake light and the 1157 has a 24cp
light (if I recall correctly).

Just guessing, one may be long life. The ones I got at Auto Zone were
marked 1157LL and I was wondering if it was the right bulb. It was.
Also, they sell a 1141 single filliment backup light bulb that pulls
50 watts. It is very bright, as I found out when checking it.

Don't bite on the LED bulbs. Your blinkers and flashers may not work
with them.

Yes, but you might find them cheaper at Auto Zone. Look near the
bottom of the rack.
