Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Got them all connected. I'll write a DIY thread tomorrow.

Not a fun install, unless you have small hands and arms. I also have my exhaust resonators removed so that definitely helped.

Hey Lux,

How's everything working out? Did you ever get a chance to do the write up?

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I can tell you from first hand experience...writeups are fun to do, but sometimes when you start putting words down...you don't have a pic to go with something critical.

Hope to see one soon!

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I have been seeing some 25 watt Cree led brake lights, would these alleviate the need for resistors? Do both rear brake lights need resistors normally, Also do the front turn signal bulbs need resistors?? I have slowly been replacing every bulb on the truck with LED, well post a chart once complete.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Generally the wattage rating of an LED is the combined light output of each LED chip.

My brake light bulbs are rated at 60 watts.

The circuit is designed to defect the resistance of the bulb to stabilize the blink speed.

Each bulb location needs it's own load.

So yes every turn signal bulb would need a resistor

You can try to see if the resistors is not needed but more than likely you will.

Thats odd, my jeep brake lights are standard 3057 bulbs, which are 26 Watts. A 60 watt brake light would be brighter than some headlights.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I have LED'S (the light is red and they are more visible in the day or bright sunlightthey now.)

They are no brighter than some OEM leds. I am considering smoking the lenses though.....but I am satisfied with the output it is not blinding


That what I was telling you they advertise the wattage for LED'S by

Adding up the combined total outout of the chips.

Example 20 watts = 4 5 watts per chip


If you want to know how bright the bulbs are you have to compare the lumens

I'm not following I guess, a really bright Samsung LED chip is like .25 to .5 watts. A 60 watt LED would need over 100 chips, possible but not likely. Normal LED automotive bulbs are between 3 and 12 watts, hence the system is seeing too low voltage and throws an error. I think these 25 watt LED I'm seeing have built in resistors. Not sure but with only like 12 chips on board there is not much more explanation for the wattage.
I may just purchase some and report back.

The output of the LED'S never match their actual resistance.


Eventhough the bulbs you are looking at say 25 watts they normally don't produce 25 watts of resistance.

It is always worth a shot to try new bulbs that have built in resistors. But others have not been too successful with that style of bulb.

I have read somewhere that most chrysler vehicles need at least 10 ohms of resistance for the flashers to work in an led swap.

So if you measure the load on the LED bulb and it is not producing at least 10 ohms then you will still need an external resistor.

I'll do a stock vs LED vid when i do my install.
Anyone think putting just a set of resistors on a pair of front switchback LEDs will fix the mirror fast blink without needing resistors on the brake lights. I am assuming these are all on the same circuit. And only when the blinker is on will the resistor be active which saves energy and won't cause it to heat too much

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

How did everyone else V3 Install go? I'm debating whether to go with the V3 led kit or bulbs and resistors.

Seems the V3 Install is a PITA.
