I am an LED *****....

Well today I finished both of the rear license plate LED setups for the Ranger and the Evo. I think the results are fantabulous. See for yourself.



To make it very clear, they are atleast as bright as the stock ones, if not brighter. The picture is blurry for 2 reasons. 1: I had the flash off and I was holding it steady with my arms (no tripod) and 2: I didn't want anyone to be able to read my plates due to the fact I have many incriminating mods hahaha (jk).

This is my collection for the incandescent museum, all of the stock bulbs I have replaced. (actually just some I have replaced many more)



PS: The car has no tail lights right now because they are in my closet, they will be back in this week when I get the turn signals and reverse bulbs I have ordered.

I soon will have LED tails in the ranger, but I will not be using any of the LED's you have. I will have 4 fiber-optic red bulbs in that work 10,000% better than any web-available LED or incandescent. If all goes well I will make these available for the public but I have to test them on my truck first.

that looks good! I like your idea for the LEDs in the tails, since I nightshaded my tails I wish I had some nice LED bulbs to go in there to make up for any lost light output, so I'll be interested to see how ur setup goes!

Drilling holes in gauge cluster, adding five 5mm leds in each hole...having a crap load of leds there and behind the hvac control. Popping out the bulbs in the fog, cruise, 4x4 switch, headlamp switch......and adding leds using Mr. Griggs' how to's. Stuff like that. I added 2 leds to each cruise pod for even light distribution. All the others you can find led replacements for.....dash ones are a little more difficult.
