Re: Putco LED conversion list

Hi,
I would probably go with the 360 7440 LED bulb to get the most light spread. The neutrons may gave you more forward lighting but they will most likely have less light spread as you are not utilizing the reflectors inside the housing.

Great. One last question, are these CANBUS-proof?

Re: Putco LED conversion list

no, but you don't need them to be in order to upgrade the reverse lights =)

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Hi Guys,

I want to change over my DRLs so that they're white light, just like my main lights.

However, when i goto Xenon Depot, there are three different 3157 LEDS Bulbs, as below:

3157 Hyper Flash LED Replacement Bulb
3157 High Power Neutron LED Replacement Bulb
3157 LED 360 Replacement Bulb

Link: Bulbs

I'm confused as to which one to order for my DRLs?? can anyone help on this one?

Thank you,

Stick with the recommended Putco Nova 3157 globe as shown in first post here. I started with a generic LED 3157 and one failed at "dim" setting within a few weeks. I have had Novas in mine for about five months and 8,000 km with no problems.
I would not use the Neutrons as there is a powerful LED at front which is directly behind the little Jeep moulding. There is at least one post here of overheating with these which seems possible to me because of this LED placement on bulb.
Apart from my experience, a number of others seem to have had success with the Putco Nova bulb and they are also listed by Putco as "suitable for dimming" and for a DRL.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Novas have been discontinued... I would go with the 360 style. While Ross51 did have issues we sell many of them and rarely experience any failures.
