    Anyone done led turn signal lights or brake lights. Not the replacement housings but just the bulb. I need info on what is needed. Seems no sites have a complete system with led light , flasher, and resisiter if needed.

    The issue with the LED bulbs is they are not extremely bright during the day. You would want a high wattage/count LED bulb and a resistor for the turn signals. I have LED amber parking lights in the front corners and 1 watt white lights in the tag light.

    Waiting to afford a set of replacement LED tails.

    i got my bulbs from www.ledlight.com

    Yep, the brightest you can find. Ones that have the leds on all sides and facing out. Get the ones that have the flat square leds, not the small bullet shaped ones that people are familiar with. The flat square ones shine light at a wide angle, the bullet shaped ones are very directional and narrow angled.

    Can use flashers, ours are a toyota only item. Use the load eqs. One on each corner.
