Looks great. I've been thinking about doing an LED conversion to all the exterior lamps. I like those turn signals alot. I feel the same way about the round headlights. Those may be the first ones I change.

First things first though. Gotta get my hands on some steel for the front hitch. Things have finally calmed down and I have some time. Just gotta find the material.

Lol! Ya I was using my phone so I just kept snapping pix and by the end I took 12 shots and two of them were amber! If I wasn't so lazy I would have grabbed the SLR and made quick work out of it.

They are definitely bright! They will have no problem blending into with the low beams.

It really isn't hard at all. The most difficult part is getting the bulbs in and out of the socket. I don't have small nimble hands. Installing the resistor is super easy. I think you can do it just fine!

Just for clarification: In your Youtube video, do you have your parking lights on? I was under the impression that if no running lights were on then the turn signal would blink only amber? Is that right? Also who was the seller on Ebay? Thanks

Yes you are correct, the running lights were on. At the end of the vid I walked over to the other side where you can see it isn't blinking just steady white. The lights blink amber but when the blinker is not engaged they are white. If the running lights are off, they only blink amber.

I will try to post an eBay link...

Sorry to bug this old thread, but I am hoping someone can lend me some knowledge on this topic. I am trying to install the led bulbs in the front turn signal, and with the proper resistor installed on each side, I am having trouble getting them to work properly. The bulbs I purchased from Superbrightleds.com are CAN Bus bulbs, because that is what their site "recommended" The bulbs work as running light, but do not flash with the running light on. Their "technical assistance" is quite worthless. Do I need to return these and order just standard led bulbs?

I was hoping this would be an easy enough mod, but am getting quite frustrated with it! Any help is greatly appreciated!

Did you use a resistor? If not that is probably your problem.
