No, you don't necessarly need the resistors as the front and rear signal lights will still blink at the normal rate. However, the green turn signals on the interior dash will still blink like a bat out of hell and make the clicker sound very fast. It can get annoying really quick, so for that reason, I still installed the resistors.

But if you don't mind the interior blinking fast, then exterior signals will still work just fine.

The front and mirror blinkers are already LED. No need to change them. Unless you want to change them to super white bulbs etc. Not sure about the size

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I've been reading through this thread - as I am about to give it try. I found a youtube video that seems to give a good walk through of the resistor installation in case anyone else might want to look at it.

Thanks for all the detailed information you all have provided.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

For you guys going with V3 Triton for the rear turn signal/brake lights, did you go red or white? Aren't the stock bulbs white as the tail light lense is red?

I went with red and they're bright! It looks like the 5k and 6k are rated at higher lumens but how much brighter can they be?! Lol. The ones i have are just as bright as any OEM led's that you see on benz's and audi's.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

with white bulbs/LEDs, most of the light is filtered by the red lens, with red LEDs most of the light gets through the lens.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Ok cool, I just went with the white as I want them to be as bright as possible. Look's like I will have to get creative like PB617 and splice those bad boys in behind the bumper as there is no room. Got the soldering gun and heat shrink ready...

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Hey PB617.. Question: Did you use the resistors for your Triton V3's brake/turn signals?

Yes, i used the control box that came with the kit. The resistors are built into that unit.

PB617: Thank you so much for quick response, I oredered mine on dec 23 and were shipped by VLEDs same day, coming from WA state to NY, and its taking forever, I wont get em till like monday 1/06. This forum is great , I got bright white limited with Lux II and 20's, light frost int. I have already changed my grill to summit honey comb chrome today, in snow. just could not wait. I changed my brake light bulbs like someone posted on page 2 i think , with Jtech 13W led bulbs, But they are not bright enough.It gets lost in the led running light which we have. I am sure those tritons which you have will be alot more brighter. I am gonna read your posts again where you explained the install. I will post some pics some other day, because it was snowing when i took delivery of my jeep, and its dirty with snow and salt. couldnt enjoy the shining jeep and pano roof.
