I was worried I wasn't getting enough light through my niteshaded tails so I ordered some L1224Rs from JP7. Kind of pricey but they arrived on my doorstep 2 days after I paid for em.
I installed them the same way STL did, with a rotary tool and some sockets JP& included with the bulbs. Didn't really take any pics of the installation process since STL did a good job in his thread. These bulbs are brighter then stock but not as bright as I expected. I think this is due to my 01 tail lights and how dark they are shaded. The color is clearly more vivid though. I'm still waiting on my led license plate bulbs and my EP27 flasher from superbrightleds.com
Anways onto some pics.
Stock bulbs, brake lights in my garage
L1224Rs Brake lights
I let my girl friend drive my ranger around the block and I followed her in her focus.
I didn't take a pic of the running lights in the day light mainly because you can't even tell they are on. I'm thinking about getting some 06 tails and either doing less coats of niteshade or have a shop around here tint (like literally with a special film) them.
Here's a night pic of the brake lights on.
Please excuse my crappy cell pics.
