LED conversion (exterior) Pictures

I started with the tail lights on the Evo, and I am very happy with the results. Next step is to do the truck. I am going to be using the "electronic turnsignal flasher" instead of load resistors to keep them blinking at the normal rate.

I will be getting the same style bulbs for the truck so here is what I expect.

I did this thread so others can see the results of an LED conversion..

The first 2 pics are an LED and a Stock bulb in my stock ranger taillights that are out of the truck and in the basement. I tried to go into detail to help others.





The rest of these pics are of my Evo, which I just converted to LED today, but you can see how this worked out so you know how the Ranger will look.

What style LED did you go with for the reverse light. I am thinking about putting some in, because I back into my driveway 90% of the time and it's dark as night.

For the ranger I bought 57 LED bulbs on ebay for 29 bucks or something. For the Evo I got these.

I am EXTREMELY happy with these bulbs in both color and brightness.

If I could do the truck again I would have gotten the same ones as I got for the car, but obviously the evo takes 7443 bulbs where the truck takes 3157.

They sell pretty much the same thing on v-leds.
Get these.

39 bucks. You cant go wrong.
