Way too late update:

Replaced the stock blue incadescent flasher with a flasher purchased at Autozone for about $12. It's an EP27 that says LED on the flasher, but not the packaging. works great! Cured the 'hyperflash' issues when the turnsignal is selected. Problem was cured about a week after the LED install was done.

Went to 3 different auto parts stores to find one that would work. The one from Schucks flashed FASTER than the stock flasher. lol.

Vid comes later.




Oh....and to anyone talking about the 3rd bulb on '06+ tails....yea.....I'm going to do it again. Damnit Trevor for driving by my house the other day after his full blown LED conversion on all his lighting. lol.

I sold the civic guy the exact same thing Shane bought, of course there is a bright (turnsignal brake light) mode and dim (running lights) mode - just like your stock bulbs.

I have some left now, till people buy them all up..

Oh JP7, btw, I saw a new body style Chevy Malibu with what looked like the L1224R bulbs in it. The rapid ignition of light caught my attention out fo the corner of my eye and I pulled up and got some pics at a red light. I will post them hopefuly this weekend, but LED is the wave of the future, lol. Now I am glad I waited on putting those bulbs in my Ranger.

I'm trying... I was thinking worse case scenario to take apart an L1224R and mod it internally. - should be easier than a cluster, and no needles...

Yea I love thoes. I had a set on the SRT. When I traded in the car if I would have thought about it I would have replaced the headlights and turn signals withe the stock ones. Who knew they used the same ones as a ranger. I could have had a set of SS and chromes.

How did you go about painting the sockets? That looks like a great thing to do. It makes them look 100x better.

you pull it out and disconnect the socket, put a lil tape over the metal connectors, and paint it lightly with primer
