Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

WOW!

I am going to put up some pictures and possibly a video but let me tell you these bulbs are bright! They make the brake/turn signals look great in my 2015 Overland. I love the instant on and the look is what they should have been from the factory.

I got these bulbs from Steve at XenonDepot and he told me I would be happy with them and he was right!

If you are on the fence, don't be. Install the pair and also get the canbus/resistors so you don't have hyperflash. Super easy to install.

I bought these for my 2014. Waiting for the weather to warm up to install them. Glad to hear you're liking these. Would love to see some pics!

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

How many are needed for the upgrade? 2 for each side? Or did you just buy 1 pack.

Just two bulbs or one pack, you will also need the resistors, one for each side. They also come two in one pack, and are branded Phillips. XenonDepot has a dropdown next to the bulb, select w/Canbus

They are really well built, I know XenonDepot will take care of you!

Where did you mount the resistors?

There is room between the bumper cover and the body. I put them on with double sided tape and covered with metal supplied tape. I will check them after a few weeks and see how they holding up

Thanks, just ordered the bulbs from Xenon Depot, they charge $US even if you're located in Canada...Philips 3157 P21 (they are red from what I read) with resistor option, easy to order on their website. I like that! One package (2 bulbs, 2 resistors) around $50.
Resistors come with wiring instructions?

Yes they charge US$, but your package ships from Canada and doesn't enter the US, so no chance of duty, extra taxes.

Thanks.
How did you wire the resistor? Does it come with instructions?

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

Got the Philips bulbs and CAN Bus error cancellers (resistors) from Xenon Depot, arrived quickly.
Everything is easy; just hook up the 2 wires of the resistor to the 2 wires going to the brake/turn signal bulb.

QUESTION: Where did you guys mount the resistor?
I can simply push it down between the plastic bumper and the vehicle but that wouldn't secure the resistor...
There is no room behind the taillight assembly...
Let me know, pictures?

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

^^^ I didnt go with these LED's as I have the plug and play VLED V3 system as seen in another thread, however I do have a great spot for you for the resistors.
As you already mentioned, put them down between the bumper and body of the car. Put a strip of good double sided tape on the back of the resistor and reach down and place it on a flat part of the body. You may have to unscrew the bolt that secures the bumper below the tail light using the torx bit and that will give you a bit more room to squeeze your hand down in there to push it against the surface.
To see it better maybe shine a light down there and you will see that nice clean painted flat surface which is a perfect spot to mount them. Sorry I cant provide pictures, but its pretty self explanatory once you can see in there.

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

Excellent, that's what I'll do. I was thinking about this when looking at the one bumper screw, thanks again.
