EAch LED only uses 1/10 of a watt of power. If you could replace every light in your truck with LEDs you would have a tiny bit better performance because of reduced alternator load. Nothin noticeable probably though.

Do you have any pics of what the kit looks like? Just wondering how the LED would be secured under the dash.

If you are going to do exhaust, I highly recommend the original 40 series. Mine sounds really good. If you are interested, I can put up a clip sometime.

Do the lift first so the exhaust doesn't look funny hanging down after the lift.
