Is that legal in your state though, here in MA I wouldnt pass inspection with them white. I had to get the dual amber/white. What resistors did you end up using?

it looks good alex! yea, resistor are needed for it to work properly. i had the dual turn bulbs as well, but not too sure how to work the resistors. it's in storage till i know how :( lol.

Huh, didnt you start a thread recently about your blinkers blinking rapidly or something? In that thread you didnt include you changed the bulbs to leds. Resistors are needed when changing regular bulbs to leds.

HUH???? So what is it, the dont blink at all or they blink really fast???? RESISTORS are needed, im really surprised not knowing they were with all the threads on here about leds.

They will blink "normal" when you turn the hazards on...but if you use them separately, like turning left or right, the Jeep is going to think the bulb is either blown, or there is no bulb in there. Thats why its blinking all crazy like. You need to get some resistors. Or, put the amber 3157's back in there.

And yes..you'll need resistors no matter what!

UGH, YESSSS. A resistor is needed on any regular bulb that is swapped with an led. One resistor per led bulb. For the front, a resistor is needed for each parking/turn led bulb, for the rear a resistor is needed for each parking/turn led bulb and a resistor for each parking/brake led bulb.
