UPDATE:


Went to two places yesterday to find a replacement flasher....Schucks had one, but i installed it and it flashed FASTER! Went to AutoZone and picked up a Tridon/Stant Electronic EP27 flasher for about $12. Works flawlessly. I think on the first flash of a signal, it 'holds' the light a little longer than normal, then blinks normally.

so yea...i got the flasher problem figured out.

After putting it in the brake light of the 06 tail light, would it have been just as easy to put into the bottom chamber under the reverse light ya think?

the third light that you "modded" into the taillight, underneath the reverse light. Basically do you think you could fit the L1224R into it? (instead of the 906 or whatever size bulb you stuck in there?)

sorry if I'm still being vague

Drivers side was the LED side, passenger side was my housing and his bulbs... Used for comparison.

What your saying is that the LED comes bright before the stock bulb. Hence proving my (our) point.

Big safety advantage ftw!

None of the pics or videos can really capture the color difference.

Nah, you're right lol... LED = instant on instant off... No heat is involved to make light...

L - Light
E - Emitting
D - Diode

lol

Color difference is huge...

If you read the posted PDF, there is a 24' distance at travel speed between the time it takes for the LED to reach full brightness, compared to the incandescent bulb. More than 1 car length can make a huge difference.

Yea...i suppose it'll fit. But i eliminated that mod when i went to LED. I just didn't dig the 'weirdness' of it being a back lighted reflector.

Yea....the pics really suck. IT's sooooo dang hard to compare the stock color vs. LED color. Also the brightness...so hard to shoot that with a cheapo camera. lol. In person, and trevor can confirm this, these LEDs are incredible.

Oh yeah...why bother with projectors and the effort if you are not going to have high beams for the occasional ******** you flashes his highbeams not knowing what real headlights look like, OR the [email protected] who has some big super duty lifter 12" on 38s with 10,000K HIDs in stock housings broadcasting blue light everywhere like an idiot. I flash those fools with the low beam only HIDs....IF he flashes still. I blow by with my train horns on....Either way, my little ranger always wins that battle. :)
