keggles Here is the photos, it was difficult to snag a photo with the brake applied/signal/hazards. I can say, of the block of LED's the bottom half blinks much brighter showing the application of signals/braking. I threw the reverse light picture in there as well. Ill see if I can get a video, the glare from the brightness was killing it though.

keggles I will have to get some photos with running lights VS applied break. My reverse is solid white and is pretty close to this https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/0...lights-597208/ in the daylight. I know if you don't have the assembly that can handle/convert the power properly it wont show much of a difference in the lights running or signals. I put my reverse LED in on the OEM tails and it barely showed. Once i swapped with the new ones it was a hell of a difference. I'll get pictures in the dark when I get home.

I went with IPCW LEDT-5005R2 for the 05/06 models off of Amazon and they are pretty solid. The "R2" is the color code of the ones you pick, but they have smoked and clears as well. The reverse light is still a bulb, but I bought a reasonable LED bulb off Amazon as well for like $15 shipped pair and its like the sun when they are in, 67 individual LED's per bulb. Our OEM assemblies wont run the LED reverse light, but will within these and most new assemblies.
Whats the difference in the brightness of the running light VS the turn signal or brake light lit up? This seems to be the biggest problem with aftermarket LED's. The difference in brightness when using the brakes or turn signals is marginal at best. I have seen it before. That is not good in this world or brain dead drivers lol. I am looking for a huge difference in the brightness.

Jaashua There is a difference between the 3 socket tails and 2 socket tails. Although that is year specific 05-07 (Three) and 08-10 (Two) Otherwise Laredos and Limiteds have the same tails.

Confused about Aftermarket Taillights.

I have a '05 WK Laredo with a corroded passenger brake light socket (corroded on the socket and the tail light assembly) and was looking at some aftermarket replacements. Spyder auto has a led lens but in the description it states that it will not fit the Laredo model. I watched the "video tutorial" on replacing the lens but it appeasr to be the exact lens I currently have. What would be the difference between the Laredo and Limited Taillights?
