He came to the conclusion that the LED light assembly must be shorted out and for me to pack em up and ship em back so they can replace them. uggggh! so........ thats what Im doing.. The Tail light adventure will resume in a week or so due to shipping.....

However, The headlights went in with only very minor wiring mods.( just splicing in the halos to the parking lights) and yes I did it with the right connectors LOL. NO twisted wires and electrical tape
look good! I'll post up some pics as soon as I get the fogs all wired up!
We don't want to see those hideous things. J/K.......maybe.

Love the look. But am having a nightmare w/ the install !
The top light is the LED it has a pigtail that connects to the factory plug. Im using the stock bulbs for the middle and reverse lights..... It seems either way I connect them I either blow the stop fuse or the parking light fuses... Tried every combination there is , all I have to show for my work is a headache, and a handfull of blown 10 and 15 amp fuses LOL I did a search for the same issue but it seems all the issues are from people just replacing the stock bulbs w/ LED replacements. Im totally stumped! is it an issue with the mix of stock bulbs w/ the LED one? (do I need to switch to LED's for all 3 lights?)
Don't feel bad. I had the exact lights & the exact problem. I thought it was just me.LOL I sent my back & got my money back. Cool looking lights but they don't work worth a F**K.
