I did it over the summer... I was a little hesitant at first cutting into the grill, sort of a "no turning back now" moment... after having done it, there's no way I'd WANT to turn back

Will do this mod soon. Did the tail lights last weekend.
Does anybody have any suggestions on which lights to use for the front side reflectors?

I used LED bulbs that work ok. I wish I could find some retrofit like the front light I put in.

They are aftermarket H4 upgrades I think I for them off eBay. Love them. I did the wire harness mod as well and lights are crazy bright.

I did the same thing. I had 10 volts to the bulbs before the wiring harness mod. I got some 55/100 bulbs too. WORLD of difference!

So... ended up getting a set of LED's like posted above.
I'm having issues with the wiring, have to admit I have not yet searched the forum for the solution. That cones next. I thought I ask here first.
Did the rear LED and replaced turn flasher with EL12. All works like stock.
With front ones, it works ok with running lights off, but does not flash for turn and indicator in dash (green arrow) is always illuminated.
Does the hazard flasher also need to be replaced?
How did you guys do the wiring?
LED's have 3 wires, like stock setting.
Thanks for the help.

You must have a resistor for both right and left turn signals. I put mine behind the light and the air comes in the radiator opening and keeps them cool since they get real hot.
