Thanks for the tips. I tried one set of bulbs I got for free from a local shop which were quickly returned as their output was half that of the regular style. Then I found some on eBay like the ones you guys recommended for reverse lights and they're great!

Do you need load resistors for any of these lights and if so how and where do you put them?

just for turning signals. they effectively trick the computer into thinking the right amount of load is on the circuit. without them, your signals will flash really quick because the computer thinks something is wrong, because LEDs draw less power, and does this to alert you in the cab something is up with your flashers...in theory

i'll let someone else explain installing them, since I have not done so myself

Resistors are easy to install with quick splices. Just splice the resistor to the power (major) and the turn (minor).

I put them on front for my switchbacks. But rear is the same.

I'm going to upgrade the brake lights with high power led lights from lightingnext. The lights look well-made and are direct drop-in replacements for my 3157's socket. Now what I'm unsure of, is which color to buy. It is my understanding that a red filter (the plastic tail lens in this case) will block out all light except red, but the manufacturer uses a poorly lit yellowish bulb to illuminate the tail lights from the factory. So my question is, if each of the red and white versions of this product produce the same output of light, which will produce better light through the filter, red or white Cree LEDs? I would imagine the ultra-bright white Cree LEDs that I've seen in action would do a fantastic job of illuminating my tail lights, but when I saw the red version it made me stop and think... what if the red would look brighter/better (more red)?
