Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

Thanks for the inspiration. I had 2 LED license plate bulbs sitting in their package that didn't work out for my other vehicle. When I saw your post I realized they look just like to the ones you are using.

So, out to the garage I headed and 10 minutes later I now have nice LED's installed.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

I will be installing the LED's reverse bulbs when I get my LED tails back from Ken.... they are tinted and look awesome! Light output is great too. I need to install new LED reverse bulbs in them though.

I tried led tail lights but since the main tail is also the turn signal you get the fast-blink bulb out indicator. I had asked the question whether the turn signal flasher unit is a separate unit. I know some heavy duty units do not use voltage draw to operate and may work with the lower voltage demand of LEDs. I don't want to mess with resistors or anything so for now that is on hold.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

I had the hyper flash problem with my Ram I had to put in resistors and it isn't a clean install.

I am still thinking about taking out the blinker from my brake lights. I want to move the blinker to the backup light under it and have a yellow flasher. Shouldn't be a hard wire change.

+rep for anyone who can tell me how to gain access to the rear auxiliary tail lights and backup lights. These are the ones located on the liftgate. The two 8mm nuts on the back outerside of each doesn't quite do it. Do I have to take off the chrome in the center?

Question Problems w/ back-up camera?

Question for OP, have you noticed any problems/distortion with these lights and using the back-up camera? I wouldn't think so but those bulbs are WAY brighter than stock.
