I run those. They are epically bright and look awesome. Only problem is, as you said, they require trimming ... and a bunch of fiddling with the electronics to get them to work. Then again any LED conversion will require fiddling with resistors and/or electronic based flashers

Why not just replace the bulb with a LED?

LED bulbs would work, but you still have the stock crummy lens to shine through, unless you replace that as well (Even then the setup would be far from optimal). Also LED replacement bulbs for incandescents just aren't that great since LED's are directional, and incandescents are omni-directional.

With these replacements there are 24 forward facing LEDs with reflectors to maximize output. They're bright.

Those look sweet. I think I know what I'm doing when it warms up a bit.

If you look you do just the replacement bulb. They have several styles out now days ones that would be facing one direction or multi directional LEDs. That work just like an a indecent bulb. Also get the same color as the lens

$25 for a bulb? Hot damn. For $5 less you can get a much better performing setup and they look a lot better than stock.

Well unless you are going to run a separate wires for the turn signal light. You will not be able to use the amber light on the rear.

Your trailer connector will be the same you will still need to run a separate wires from the front to work and amber turn signal light on the rear. Because the rear brake light and signal lights are on a shared wired even to the trailer connector.

Not really, the square LED's from SuperBrightLED's work well for turn signals. The red ones even work well for tail/turn/stop lamps too.
