Re: Flasher relay? Virtual Relay?

Welp , the switchbacks I bought are too long to fit in our headlight housings.

Re: Flasher relay? Virtual Relay?

If anybody is actually following this thread

I am 0/2 on fitament for switchback bulbs

Tried 2 styles of 7444 switchback bulbs

Neither of which fit, they were both too long. I don't see any online that appear to be shorter than these. Currently this project is dead in the water.

Re: Flasher relay? Virtual Relay?

The proper sized bulbs are out there on Ebay. If I remember, I purchased a set from VLeds that fit but with having to find a spot to drill for their big resistors, I sent them back.

I can't remember the size I finally deduced that was the max length for the bulbs to fit.

Also, check jeep_addicted threads, he went through the same situation.

I think it was roughly 1.8 inches long (48mm) is about the max. length.
